Speaking to ANI on his special show with PM Modi, Bear said, “I’ve been a massive fan of India for many years, so for me to take such an iconic global leader like PM Modi on an adventure into the wild was a real privilege. I hope people really enjoy the show.”

“Wild is a great leveler, it does not care who you are and it regards courage and commitment and you got to work together. During the show with the PM, we actually witnessed severe storms and torrential rain. Even just for the off camera journey, his secret service team, our camera crew were really on the edge, but PM Modi was just very calm and I saw that throughout our journey. This apart, what shone bright for me was his humility,” Bear said.
