The intense buzz over Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s interview with Akshay Kumar ahead of the Lok Sabha elections had shown how much the citizens loved to see the lighter side of the PM; his upcoming appearance on ‘Man Vs Wild’ looks set to follow the same path. The reactions from Bollywood stars for the episode is the biggest testimony to this fact. As the episode of PM Modi and adventurer Bear Grylls’ geared up for release on Monday, Akshay Kumar, Ajay Devgn, Anil Kapoor and Vivek Oberoi expressed their excitement to watch the bonhomie between the PM and the popular adventurer at the Jim Corbett National Park in Uttarakhand.
As both PM Modi and Bear Grylls announced the timing of the ‘Man vs Wild’ episode, Ajay termed it as the ‘Call of the day’.
Akshay stated that he was looking forward to watching the episode, terming it as a ‘unique show high on adventure and adrenaline’ that also throws light on issues like climate change and environmental protection.
Vivek, who played PM Modi in his biopic ‘PM Narendra Modi’ recently, called him as the ‘coolest PM’, who took a major step against global warming. He added that it was one of his favourite shows and he couldn’t wait to ‘get inspired by Mother Nature’, hoping it's the same for everyone.
Anil Kapoor termed the collaboration as a ‘Great setting, great men, great mission’ while adding, ‘Can't wait to watch this!’
Earlier, Karan Johar had given thumbs up to the collaboration.
The promos of the episode where PM greets Bear Grylls and the duo create a makeshift spear, while PM opened up on his time in the Himalayas or India’s progress in cleanliness, had all made headlines before.
