Wednesday evening was a starry affair with superstars Salman Khan and Katrina Kaif launching the book Silent Sentinels of Ranthambhore by Bina Kak. The event, that took place at Taj Land’s end, Bandra, was graced by several other biggies such as Salim Khan, Salma Khan, Helen, Kabir Khan, Katrina Kaif, Priya Dutt, Baba Siddiqui, Dalip Tahil, Roop Rathore, Bina Kak, Vijay Kalantri, Vikas Kalantri, Kapil Kapoor (publisher), Kamal Morarka, Himesh Reshamiya, Daboo Ratnani, Piyush Pandey and Mike Pandey.
It is always a pleasure to catch Salman and Katrina together and they surely were looking their best on Wednesday. The actors, whose film Tiger Zinda Hai will be hitting the screen on 22nd December, dazzled in black.
The event was managed by Whiteleaf Entertainment and was impeccably planned, keeping each and every detail in mind. Once the book was launched, the guests helped themselves to an elaborate high tea.
About the Book
Ranthambhore is a dry, deciduous, thorn forest that sits at the junction of the Aravalli and Vindhya hills in Rajasthan. Known for its amazing and uplifting combination of heritage – natural and historical – which intermingles with its forests, Ranthambhore is home to a diverse range of flora and fauna. Within its nearly 1400-square kilometre area, Ranthambhore National Park and its critical tiger habitat provide for one of the finest areas for viewing wildlife in the world. This book is a first-hand account of Ranthambhore and some of the tigers that inhabit it. *The book is published by ROLI BOOKS
Through her incredible photographs, Bina Kak narrates her experiences and encounters with one of the most magnificent creatures in the world, in one of the most magical settings imaginable. She introduces you to some of the well-known tigers of Ranthambhore, each with unique characteristics and forms – from large territorial males like Bahadur who give a helping hand in bringing up their cubs, to the resident tigress Machli, who was possibly the oldest living tiger in the wild world. This book is a tribute to the tiger families of Ranthambhore. The foreword has been penned by His Holiness The Dalai Lama.
