Narendra Modi, The Prime Minister of India has joined in the adventure with British adventurer Bear Grylls.

Narendra Modi will be seen in a special episode of popular wildlife show Man vs Wild on August 12. He will be exploring, the untamed wildlife with Man vs Wild presenter Bear Grylls.

According to the Discovery Channel’s statement, this special episode of Man Vs Wild was shot in the Jim Corbett National Park in Uttarakhand, India.

Recently, Bear Grylls has posted a 45 seconds teaser of him and Prime Minister Modi walking and talking about their experiences in the jungles.

PM Modi said, "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 program focusing 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.

The announcement came soon after PM Modi released the 2018 tiger census report, saying that with around 3,000 tigers, India has become "one of the safest habitats" for the big cats in the world.

Bear Grylls said, “It was a privilege to take the PM on an adventure into the Indian wilderness. I feel truly honored 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."

"People across 180 countries will get to see the unknown side of PM Narendra Modi as he ventures into Indian wilderness to create awareness about animal conservation & environmental change," Grylls wrote in a social media post.

In the past, Bear Grylls worked with several 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.
