Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi will be seen a completely different avatar as he is set to make an appearance on adventurer Bear Grylls’ hugely popular show "Man vs Wild". The episode will be aired on the Discovery Channel on August 12.

"People across 180 countries will get to see the unknown side of PM @narendramodi as he ventures into Indian wilderness to create awareness about animal conservation & environmental change," Edward Michael Grylls, better known as Bear Grylls, tweeted.

The special episode, shot in Jim Corbett National Park in Uttarakhand, will throw light on wildlife conservation according to a statement from Discovery.

"You are the most important man in India. My job is to keep you alive," Bear Grylls tells Modi as they are seen making what appears to be a wooden spear.

Bear Grylls has featured many famous people on his show in the past, including former US President Barack Obama, tennis legend Roger Federer and American singer Nick Jonas.
