In his tweet, Grylls had said it will be an opportunity for people across the globe to see the unknown side of the Indian Prime Minister. In his response Modi had said the episode will contribute to the discourse of environmental conservation.
The teaser showed them exploring the wild lands of Jim Corbett, where Grylls presents Modi with a makeshift spear and promises to keep the "most important man in India" safe. The 45-second-long clip teased the episode as an "epic adventure of a lifetime" and the one that unites "an ace adventurer" with "the leader of the world's largest democracy".
