According to a statement from the channel, the special episode, featuring adventurer Bear Grylls and PM Narendra Modi will be shot in India’s Jim Corbett National Park.

The episode, as per reports, will premiere on August 12 and will be broadcasted in more than 180 countries across the world on Discovery network of channels.

“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 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 PM 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,” he added. Bear 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 (referring to PM Modi). 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 added. Sharing the teaser of the episode on Twitter on Monday, Bear said it will be an opportunity for people across the globe to see the unknown side of the Indian prime minister.

In his response to Bear Grylls, PM Modi said the episode will contribute to the conversation of environmental preservation. Watching this program will make you want to visit different parts of India and add to the discourse of environmental conservation,” the PM tweeted.
