As the world witnessed the spectacular adventure show ‘Man vs Wild’ featuring Prime Minister Narendra Modi as a guest along with host Bear Grylls, a section of country’s liberal industry had mocked the show by speculating that it was a choreographed event as PM Modi managed to communicate with Bear Grylls in Hindi while the Grylls responded adequately.
However, on Sunday, Prime Minister Modi himself revealed the facts regarding the show to put a full stop to the unnecessary propaganda pushed by some sections of the media.
Speaking during his monthly Mann Ki Baat radio address, PM Modi revealed that Bear Grylls had a small cordless instrument in his ear, which received a simultaneous translation of his conversation into English.

PM Modi clarified, “Some people ask me one thing albeit with some hesitation, Modi ji, you were speaking in Hindi and Bear Grylls does not know Hindi, so how did you carry on such a fast conversation between the two of you?”
“Whenever I spoke immediately there was a simultaneous translation into English or simultaneous interpretation and Bear Grylls had a small cordless instrument in his ear. So I used to speak in Hindi but he heard it in English and because of that the communication became very easy and this is an amazing aspect of technology,” clarified Prime Minister Modi.
On August 12, Prime Minister Modi debuted as a guest on the popular wildlife show ‘Man Vs Wild with Bear Grylls’ and it was one of the most widely watched on world television ever. The popular show had garnered 3.6 billion impressions and was still counting.
This special episode, which has been shot in the Jim Corbett National Park, was a frank and freewheeling journey, which put the focus on wildlife conservation and highlighting issues related to environmental change.
The special episode of “Man vs Wild” was broadcasted in 180 countries around the world. In India, ‘Man vs Wild’ featuring Bear Grylls and Prime Minister Modi premiered simultaneously on 12 Discovery channels in five languages – English, Bengali, Hindi, Tamil and Telugu.
When the show was announced, the Left had a collective meltdown in an effort to dehumanise PM Modi. Congress had also resorted to peddling lies saying that PM Modi had shot for this show while the Pulwama terror attack had happened. The Left had also peddled lies that PM Modi was a ‘climate change denier’ by malicious tweeting an edited video.
