Reacting to PM Narendra Modi's 'Man Vs Wild' appearance alongside host and adventure enthusiast Bear Grylls on August 12, PDP chief Mehbooba Mufti, on Monday, has sarcastically commented on PM Modi's PR skills saying that he knows how to strike a chord with every generation.
On the other hand, CPI(ML) leader Kavita Krishnan has not been so tacit about her disdain for PM Modi's wildlife adventure. She has called him a fascist, climate change denier, forest communities' killer and a corporate crony who wishes to destroy wilds in India & Australia. She further condemns the British Discovery Channel TV host for featuring such a personality on his show.
The Rashtriya Janata Dal meanwhile took a dig at the previous Modi government's claiming down 1,09,75,844 trees in 5 years for "development" with no reforestation efforts.
The Prime Minister himself took to Twitter to promote the episode, stressing his world-wide fans to visit different parts of India and add to the discourse of environmental conservation.
The episode featuring the Prime Minister alongside host and adventure enthusiast Bear Grylls is scheduled to premiere on August 12. PM Modi is seen taking a wild journey amid thick forests and gushing rivers, right in the midst of India's oldest- Jim Corbett National Park in Uttarakhand.
Breathtaking visuals from the trailer have grasped the attention of the entire nation, as India waits to watch the latest episode of the popular television show featuring PM Modi. Bear Grylls has revealed that it was an absolute honour for them to have PM Modi on board for the project.
The show is one of the most-watched wilderness survival television series in the world. Bear Grylls has hosted prominent celebrities in the past such as then sitting American President Barack Obama, Kate Winslet, Roger Federer, Julia Roberts and many more.
Bear Grylls has become known worldwide as one of the most-recognized faces of survival and outdoor adventure. The BAFTA award-winning TV host began his journey in 21 SAS before becoming one of the youngest-ever climbers of Mount Everest. A former Special Forces soldier and Everest mountaineer, Bear starred in Discovery’s hit TV series Man vs. Wild for seven seasons, before hosting the National Geographic Channel series, Running Wild with Bear Grylls.
