Last week, reports started emerging of Indian cricket captain Virat Kohli being an upcoming guest on Bear Grylls' 'Man vs Wild' survival show. While reports seemed fairly confident of Kohli being a part of the show, it is now being revealed that the star cricketer is not scheduled to be on the show. Here are the details.
In the week gone by, multiple reports had surfaced of Indian skipper Virat Kohli being a part of an upcoming 'Man vs. Wild' episode.
