The episode will be showcased in more than 180 countries across the globe on Discovery network of channels. In a statement, PM Narendra Modi has said, “I have lived among nature for years, in the forests and mountains. It has given 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.”
“The show offers a great opportunity to showcase India’s rich environmental heritage to the world and stress on the important message of environment conservation. It was a great experience to spend some time in the jungle again, this time with Bear,” PM Said. PM Modi described Bear Grylls as someone who is blessed with “indefatigable energy and quest to experience nature at its purest.”
Bear said it was a privilege to take the PM Narendra “on an adventure into the Indian Jungle.”
