In August, Prime Minister Narendra Modi had appeared in the Discovery Channel show hosted by British adventurer Bear Grylls.

The Karnataka forest department have meanwhile begun questioning the show's crew on their usage of drones without proper permission. Wildlife conversationalists have raised concern over such rampant use of electronic devices in filming documentaries and shows. As per a report in The Indian Express, the exact locations for the shoot will not be made public and the shoot is taking place under special forest protection, without it affecting regular patrolling activities.
