Man Vs Wild: It is Grylls’ English Vs Modi’s Hindi..!
In the run-up to the most awaited episode of ‘Man Vs Wild’, featuring Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi along with its ‘dare-devil host’ Bear Grylls, renowned wildlife channel ‘Discovery’ has released a second teaser. As anticipated by the channel, it was immediately devoured by Netizens in hordes, with the fresh visual content certainly adding to the hype.

Monday, the 12th of August, 2019, is the ‘D-Day’ when the channel is set to telecast the one-hour-long episode during Prime Time slot of 9 pm. It will be premiered in about 180 countries across the world on the Discovery network of channels.

Following up on the first, the second teaser gives more glimpses of the Grylls-Modi ‘epic adventure trip’ in the wildlife sanctuary of Jim Corbett National Park in Uttarakhand. Amidst all the hype and hoopla, there is a small detail that some Netizens are likely to stumble on and poke fun at the programme.

Besides all the wandering around, the second teaser shows both Modi and Grylls being locked in engaging conversations in between. The former British Special Services soldier was seen asking Modi about his passion for wildlife and also about his trips to Himalayas.

Interestingly, the Indian prime minister was seen answering the questions at length but in Hindi. One wouldn’t immediately know if Grylls was comfortable with Hindi and how much he could make out from the conversation. The best part is, he hardly looked any bit bemused and in fact kept nodding his head as if he understood every word of what the PM said.

This part of the episode is likely to make for some hilarious watching, adding a bit of fun to the excitement of the Modi-Grylls rendezvous in the wilderness. There are going to be a swarm of memes on the social media once this episode is telecast on Discovery and don’t be surprised if some of them capture the ‘Hindi Vs English’ side of it.

On his part, Narendra Modi is not new to choosing Hindi as the language for communication to address events and gatherings across the world. When this episode is telecast, people would also be curious to see how the ‘Man Vs Wild’ producers would have addressed this ‘minor disconnect’ and removed the language barrier.

Speaking of this world famous programme, the latest episode was at the centre of a major controversy on the very day it was said to have been shot at the Jim Corbett National Park. Prime Minister Modi was believed to be busy with the shooting of this programme when the Pulwama terror attack took place in Kashmir.

The opposition parties accused the PM of ignoring national security at such a grave hour and going ahead with the shooting. But the government sources denied this, stating that the shooting for this episode was already wound up by the time a suicide fidayeen attacked an army convoy with an explosives-laden jeep, killing close to 50 Indian soldiers.

Before this, Bear Grylls had featured Barack Obama on his programme, taking him on a similar adventure trip in Alaska wilderness when the latter was the US President in 2015.
