Narendra Modi will soon be seen doing a caper in the wild with none other than daredevil adventurer Bear Grylls.

The host of the popular show Man Vs Wild on Discovery Channel revealed on Monday that his new episode will feature the Indian Prime Minister.

“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. Catch Man Vs Wild with PM Modi @DiscoveryIN on August 12 @ 9 pm. #PMModionDiscovery,” Grylls wrote on his Twitter page.

The presenter also posted a promotional trailer of the show, in which Modi is seen with Grylls walking through a jungle and at one point helping Grylls craft a spear. 

The show was shot earlier this year at the Jim Corbett National Park. The coincidence between the shooting of the show and Pulwama terror attack in Jammu and Kashmir in which 40 CRPF troopers were killed was not lost on the Tweeple. Many vented their displeasure on Twitter, suggesting that the Prime Minister was out making a video when terrorists wreaked havoc.

The Pulwama attack happened on February 14, around the same time when Modi was on an election campaign in Uttarakhand and shot for the video at the wildlife sanctuary there.
