According to a statement from the channel, the special episode shot in the Jim Corbett National Park will be a "frank and freewheeling journey" which will throw light on wildlife conservation. 'Man Vs Wild' With Bear Grylls and PM Modi premieres simultaneously on 12 Discovery channels in India on August 12 and will be showcased in as many as 180 countries. Last month, Bear Grylls had stated that it will be an opportunity for people across the world to see the unknown side of the Indian prime minister.
"India- where you find lush green forests, diverse wildlife, beautiful mountains and mighty rivers. Watching this programme will make you want to visit different parts of India and add to discourse of environmental conservation," Narendra Modi tweeted responding to the post. The 45-second-long clip teases the episode as an "epic adventure of a lifetime" and the one that unites "an ace adventurer" with "the leader of the world's largest democracy". As they explore the wild lands of Jim Corbett, Bear Grylls presents Narendra Modi with a makeshift spear and promises to keep the "most important man in India" safe.
