Why did PM Modi join ‘Man vs Wild’?

Prime Minister Narendra Modi, while speaking about the show, said “For years, I have lived among nature, in the mountains and the forests.” Further adding that he was both “intrigued and inclined” to take part in a show which gave him a chance to focus on “life beyond politics and that too in the midst of nature.”
