PM Modi’s special episode with Bear Grylls to be aired on Discovery Channel

Published on : Tuesday, August 13, 2019

After getting inspired from Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s jungle adventure to be aired on Discovery channel, the Tourism Ministry has planned to make wildlife its theme for the Incredible India campaign for the next two months.

 

The show, Man vs Wild, will be premiered on August 12 and will be showcased across 180 countries around the world on Discovery network channels. The show has been shot in Jim Corbett National park.

 

“There is no bigger icon for India than the prime minister, be it wildlife or tourism or anything else. His episode will be shown on Discovery tomorrow and we have decided to make it (wildlife) our theme for Incredible India for the next two months,” said Tourism Minister Prahlad Patel.

 

Incredible India is the international campaign launched by the government in 2002 for promoting tourism.

 

This special episode, featuring survivalist and adventurer Bear Grylls and shot in Jim Corbett National Park, Uttarakhand, will be a “frank and freewheeling journey” which will throw light on wildlife conservation.

 

In a teaser released earlier by Discovery Channel, Grylls, popularly known as Bear Grylls, gives Modi an improvised version of a spear as a safeguard against potential attack by a tiger.

 

Modi tells Grylls: “My upbringing does not allow me to take a life. However, I will hold it (the spear) since you insist.”
