Narendra Modi And Bear VS wild

The episode was shot in the famous Jim Corbett Park Uttarakhand and Modi and Bear Grylls had to “make a raft to cross jungle river.”

Bear Grylls has hosted prominent celebrities in the past such as former American President Barack Obama, actor Kate Winslet  Tennis star Roger Federer and now Narendra Modi.

Narendra Modi, said that For years, I have lived among nature, in the mountains and the forests. These years have had a lasting impact on my life. So when I was asked about a special programme focusing 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 environmental 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.”

Releasing Date and time

The episode will be broadcast on 12 Discovery channels in India on August 12 at 9:00 p.m. The show will be available in 5 languages and in more than 180 countries around the world.
