Prime Minister Narendra Modi on a jungle safari? Well in case you are thinking that it would be just one of his public programme, you are in for a mega surprise. On August 12 next month, the Prime Minister will be seen trudging on an unbeaten path with TV adventure icon Bear Grylls on his super-successful show ‘Man vs Wild’. The TV host took to his official Facebook page to make the announcement. “People across 180 countries will get to see the unknown side of PM Narendra Modi as he ventures into Indian wilderness to create awareness about animal conservation & environmental change. Catch Man Vs Wild with PM Modi Discovery Channel India on August 12 @ 9 pm. #PMModionDiscovery,” Grylls said on his Facebook wall.
Bear Grylls has become known worldwide as one of the most recognized faces of survival and outdoor adventure. Grylls spent three years as a soldier in the British Special Forces as part of 21st SAS Regiment. Despite a free-fall parachuting accident in Africa, where he broke his back in three places and endured many months in military rehabilitation, Grylls went on to become one of the youngest climbers ever to reach the summit of Mount Everest. ‘Man Vs Wild’ is Discovery Channel’s Emmy award-nominated TV series, which became one of the most watched shows on the planet, reaching an estimated 1.2 billion viewers. Since then, he has hosted more extreme adventure TV shows across more global networks than anyone else in the world including the BAFTA award-winning “The Island With Bear Grylls,” “Bear Grylls’ Survival School,” “Man vs. Wild,” “Running Wild” for NBC and “Absolute Wild” for Chinese TV.
