PM Narendra Modi will now join famous adventurer Bear Grylls for an episode of ‘Man Vs Wild'. It is a hugely popular show that streams on Discovery Channel. And now our PM Narendra Modi is going to be a part of this adventure beside Bear Grylls.

On the occasion of World Tiger Day, Bear Grylls and Narendra Modi shared the glimpse of the episode that was shared by their respective social media handles.

Sharing the teaser Bear Grylls wrote,

"People across 180 countries will get to see the unknown side of PM @narendramodi as he ventures into Indian wilderness to create awareness about animal conservation & environmental change," Edward Michael Grylls, better known as Bear Grylls, tweeted, sharing a teaser of the episode that will premiere on August 12 at 9 pm.”

The special episode was shot in the Jim Corbett National Park; Uttrakhand will focus to create awareness about animal conservation and environmental change.

Talking about the 45-second video, PM Modi, is seen welcoming Bear Grylls to India and then walking in the jungles with the British adventurer and holding a flask being fully prepared for rafting.

In the video we also hear Bear Grylls saying PM Narendra Modia that,

"You are the most important man in India. My job is to keep you alive,"

The show is best known for its host Bear Grylls’ survival techniques in extreme conditions and his love for flora and fauna.

The video promises a fun ride into the diverse wildlife of India and how to reach there through different means.

About the same PM Modia added a statement,

"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," he added.

Bear Grylls said it was a privilege to take the PM "on an adventure into the Indian wilderness." "I feel truly honoured to get to spend time with this remarkable world leader. The wild reminds us that we need each other and that together we are stronger. I am so excited to spend time with the PM and to get to know the man who leads this great nation," he said.

Other than PM Modi, in the past, Bear Grylls has taken famous personalities such as former US President Barack Obama, Tennis legend Roger Federer and American singer Nick Jonas on his shows that test a person's wilderness survival skills.
