There was much speculation as to how PM Modi managed to communicate with Grylls in Hindi while the TV personality responded adequately. PM Modi later revealed the secret behind it.
"The reality is that technology was used extensively in my conversation with Bear Grylls. Whenever I spoke, immediately there was a simultaneous translation into English or simultaneous interpretation in his ear. So I used to speak in Hindi, but he heard in English and because of that the communication became very easy and this is an amazing aspect of technology," PM Modi said during his monthly "Mann Ki Baat" programme.
