Modi to feature in 'Man vs Wild' episode, Bear Grylls shares video
The Prime Minister of India, Narendra Modi, has been announced as the latest unexpected guest to team up with adventurer Bear Grylls for an episode of his survival show. PM Narendra Modi will feature in an episode of 'Man vs Wild'.
The intrepid duo travelled through Jim Corbett National Park - home to leopards, lions and elephants - in the northern state of Uttarakhand for Man vs Wild. It will be broadcast on the Discovery Channel on August 12.
The show's host Bear Grylls shared a video and said, "People across 180 countries will get to see the unknown side of PM Modi as he ventures into Indian wilderness to create awareness about animal conservation & environmental change." "Thanks, Bear Grylls for coming here!" PM Modi tweeted.
“For me, this show presents a great opportunity to showcase to the world India’s rich environmental heritage and stress on the importance of environment conservation and living with nature,” said PM Modi.
It is the second time that an elected Head of State will join Grylls for Man Vs. Wild after former American President Barack Obama featured in a special episode in Alaska in 2015.
