The famous British show “Man vs. Wild”, hosted by the famous adventurer Bear Grylls, will feature Prime Minister Narendra Modi in an episode as Modi with Bear Grylls.
The news was confirmed by Grylls on Twitter, who said he met PM Modi in India and discussed “Awareness about Animal Conservation and Environmental Change”, in the episode.
“People in 180 countries will see the unknown side of PM Narendra Modi, walking around in the Indian wilderness to raise awareness about animal conservation and environmental change,” Grylls said on Twitter.
Grylls was in Dhikala in the Near Jim Corbit Nature Reserve in Uttarakhand on 14 February. On that day, the Uttarakhand Forest Department canceled all tourist bookings to the Dhikala Forest Break due to Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s visit to the state as of Modi with Bear Grylls.
This will not be the first time Grylls has been shown with politicians at the show. In 2016, he filmed with then US President Barack Obama in Alaska for another popular show, Run Wild.

“You are the most important man in India. My job is to keep you alive.”
The exhibition was filmed as a means of promoting awareness of animal conservation and environmental change.
The program will be displayed on Discovery Channel on August 12 at 9pm.
