Bear Grylls has become the embodiment of adventure and outdoor survival and we are excited to work with him and collaborate on a Sunday special that has been curated especially for our Indian viewers. We hope that this programming gives them an opportunity to explore the world of the wild and adventure and keep the spirits high alongside their favourite icon,” said Kevin Vaz, President & Head – Infotainment, Kids & Regional Entertainment Channels, Star & Disney India.
“Life has truly been challenging for so many people around the world this last year, but if the wild has taught me anything, it is the importance of resilience and a never give up spirit. With this special adventure programming across all these Sundays ahead, the goal is to take viewers with me on many journeys and expeditions, and to help them experience how the wild places can transform us and inspire us to be stronger, more determined and to view the storms of life as times of opportunity. Together we can beat this and come through this challenging time”, said Bear Grylls.
