The Rajinikanth special episode was shot in January. It was reported then that he suffered minor injuries while shooting in forests but the actor immediately clarified that sustained only "scratches due to little thorns." He said: "I have finished shooting for the 'Man vs Wild' episode. I have not received any wounds but some scratches due to little thorns. I am alright," reported news agency ANI.
Earlier, Rajinikanth described shooting with Bear Grylls for the show as an "unforgettable experience" and tweeted: "Thank you very much dear Bear Grylls for an unforgettable experience ... Love you Discovery India. Thank you. #IntoTheWildWithBearGrylls."
Rajinikanth is the second Indian to be a part of Bear Grylls' adventure show. Prime Minister Narendra Modi appeared on the show last year in August.
