Introducing a life of danger and adventure in the wilderness, Man vs Wild was the bread and butter television show for every 90s child. As an adult, news and politics eventually upstage the childhood favourite. In an interesting blend of the two, PM Narendra Modi will feature in an upcoming episode of the show with the popular host Edward Michael Grylls, better known as Bear Grylls. Shot at Jim Corbett National Park in Uttarakhand, the episode intends to draw attention to the importance of wildlife conservation.
The reveal of the episode’s trailer shows the Prime Minister alongside Bear Grylls, travelling in a river on a makeshift raft and holding onto a weapon fashioned out of bamboo. Strategically posted on International Tigers Day (June 29), PM Modi also took the opportunity to make a statement about the gradual yet significant increase in the number of tigers in the country.
Explorer Bear Grylls also took to social media to share the trailer and discuss the details of the episode, to which PM Modi responded, calling people to watch the episode and promote environmental conservation.
