Survivalist and TV presenter Bear Grylls' popular adventure show Man Vs Wild will be filmed a special episode with the superstar in Karnataka’s Bandipur National Park. The shooting began on Monday will conclude on Tuesday.
Man vs Wild is a special series by Discovery Channel. This time, Grylls will explore the Bandipur Tiger Reserve in Karnataka along with the Tamil superstar.
Last time, Bear Grylls has made a special episode, environmental change and wildlife conservation, with Prime Minister Narendra Modi in his show. This episode was shot in the wilderness of Jim Corbett National Park, Uttarakhand.
The success of the episode with Prime Minister Narendra Modi has compelled Grylls to do another episode with India’s most followed celebrity, Rajinikanth. Bear Grylls claimed the episode broke the record to become the “world’s most trending televised event.” “‘Officially the world’s most trending televised event! With 3.6 BILLION impressions!’ (Beating ‘Super Bowl 53 which had 3.4 billion social impressions.) THANK YOU, everyone, who tuned in!” Grylls wrote on Twitter.
About his shooting experience, PM Modi said, “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.”
