Rajinikanth to feature in Man vs Wild with Bear Grylls
A new episode of Man vs Wild featuring Superstar Rajinikanth with Bear Grylls is being shot in Bandipur Tiger Reserve. An earlier edition of the documentary featured Prime Minister Narendra Modi which was shot at the Jim Corbett National Park in Uttarakhand last year.
T. Balachandra, Director, Bandipur Tiger Reserve said Rajinikanth arrived on Monday and is expected to leave by Tuesday evening. Bear Grylls reached Bandipur on Tuesday morning but details about his itinerary are not known, he added.
Mr. Balachandra said they have only permitted the use of cameras and a few equipment required for shooting wildlife documentaries and that there is no use of heavy vehicles carrying generator sets that normally tag along with film crew. He said most of the sequences will be shot along the highway and a bridge while one sequence entails crossing a water body using a coracle.
