To see a tiger crossing a road is guaranteed to frighten most. Now, imagine two of them casually sauntering across the road! A video of two tigers walking on the road has gone viral on social media after it was shared by business tycoon Anand Mahindra.
In the 1.43-minute clip, the two wild cats are seen coming out of the forest area towards the road as nearby vehicles stop to let the animals pass. A man, who is also recording the video, is heard trying to calm the people and requesting them to avoid making any noise as the tigers approach the vehicle.
After wandering around the area for over a minute, both the tigers move towards the forest area. “So our XUV isn’t the only big cat on the highway… Magnificent,” tweeted Mahindra while sharing the undated clip, which has garnered over one lakh views.

Since being shared online, the post has been flooded with netizens responding to the viral clip. However, some also debated over the location where the tigers were spotted. While the clip states that the tigers were seen on the Panchgani road near Mahabaleshwar on August 19, many wrote that the incident took place in Tadoba, Chandrapur, Maharashtra.
This is not from Panchgani Mahabaleshwar road
As per there language it’s from tadoba or Pench side region vidharbha

Seems like they are wondering what has become of their home.
Road through jungle, then shabas, then hotels, then restaurants, then farmhouses, then waterparks.
The debate of environment v. entertainment is prolonged.
