Man Vs Wild meets Narendra Modi, Twitter is reminded of Pulwama
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.

PM Modi -
NEVER FORGET: on 14th Feb 2019 when Natwarlal was on this joyride in the jungles of Uttarakhand, he knew 40 of our men were killed in Pulwama by terrorists. He continued to laugh & having fun while every other Indian was mourning deaths.#PMModionDiscovery pic.twitter.com/grR2sIvlfh— Gaurav Pandhi गौरव पांधी (@GauravPandhi) July 29, 2019
We will never forget this day #PulwamaAttack, Modi was busy shooting this film in Jim Corbett when nation was mourning Pulwama attack. @BearGrylls We know it's not your mistake, he is big actor than you. Our Prime Minister is not serious about the country. https://t.co/1iF4Mihfid— Roshan Lal Bittu (@Roshan_INC) July 29, 2019
We ain't proud of it, Cos when he was busy marketing himself we had lost 40 of our Brave Jawans to Terrorist attack in #Pulwama.— Unicorn 💫 (@snapnchat) July 29, 2019
So he was shooting this while our jawans died in Pullwama— A.P (@AmLanSolo) July 29, 2019
I didn't know you had to promote fascists to create "awareness about animal conservation". What a fall. Many Indians would have loved to talk about his "known" side too, but they are no longer around— Yeh Log ! (@yehlog) July 29, 2019
