The Discovery Channel has published a report stating the specific episode featuring survivalist and adventurer Bear Grylls and shot in India’s Jim Corbett National Park, and it will be a “natural and fresh journey”.
In a video posted by Grylls on his Twitter account, PM Modi is seen driving a short dinghy in a river with the event travel show owner.
The Man vs Wild episode will telecast on August 12 and will be telecast in 180 countries on Discovery network of channels.
In the following video, PM Modi is seen greeting Grylls to India and carrying up an armament created out of bamboo and other material obtained from the forest and speaking, “Main aapke liye isko mere paas rakhunga (I will have this with me for you).”
To this, Grylls replies with a laugh, “You are the most influential man in India, my work is to keep you lively.”
The appearance has been shot as a medium to increase recognition of animal protection and environmental transformation.
“For ages, I have been among nature, in the hills and the woods. These times have a permanent impression on my life. So, when I was questioned regarding a special program concentrating on life ahead of politics and that too between nature, I was both excited and inclined to take part in it,” Narendra Modi said.
“For me, this show offers a great possibility to showcase to the world India’s rich environmental culture and stress on the quality of ecosystem protection and living in harmony with the scenery. It was a great adventure spending time in the forest once again, this time with Bear, who is endowed with enthusiastic energy and quest to feel nature at its purest,” he added.
