The special episode, which has been shot in the Jim Corbett National Park, will throw light on wildlife conservation, highlighting issues related to environmental change.
“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 focusing on life beyond politics and that too in the midst of nature I was both intrigued and inclined to take part in it,” the Prime Minister said in a statement.

“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,” Modi added.
Grylls feels privileged to be taking “Prime Minister Modi 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,” Grylls added.
