The show in which two global icons, Prime Minister Narendra Modi and the world's most recognisable face of survival and adventurer Bear Grylls, will feature, Man Vs Wild 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.
PM Modi has expressed his enthusiasm and interest in working closely with nature.
He said, "For years, I have lived among nature, in the mountains and the forests. These years have a lasting impact on my life. So when I was asked about a special programme focussing on life beyond politics and that too in the midst of nature I was both intrigued and inclined to take part in it. For me, this show presents a great opportunity to showcase to the world India’s rich environmental heritage and stress on the importance of environment conservation and living in harmony with nature. It was a great experience spending time in the jungle once again, this time with Bear, who is blessed with indefatigable energy and quest to experience nature at its purest."
