Man vs Wild: Bear Grylls on if the audience will see him and PM Modi eat unpalatable food in their survival quests

In an interview to news agency ANI, Bear Grylls was asked if the audience will get to see him and Prime Minister Narendra Modi eating any unpalatable food in their survival quests as the show which goes by name Man Vs Wild is known for it.

To this Bear Grylls refuted the possibility by saying the "Prime Minister is a vegetarian".

"Prime Minister is a vegetarian, so there was going to be no eating of grubs or anything like that. But in the wild, you can survive very well off berries, roots, plants and certainly, Prime Minister spent his younger years in the wild, so he was very comfortable with that. We ended up very cold and very wet but shared some beautiful Indian tea together in the end; that was a very special moment for me," Bear Grylls said.
