British adventurer Bear Grylls on Wednesday shared an intriguing motion poster marking superstar Rajinikanth’s blockbuster TV debut in Discovery’s Into the Wild. Grylls also shared that it was a special experience for him to work with the Padma Vibhushan awardee.

The 45-year-old adventurer shared the motion poster on Twitter where Grylls is seen posing along with Rajinikanth on the bonnet of a jeep in the woods while they both smile looking at the camera. While sharing the motion poster, Grylls tweeted, “Preparing for @Rajinikanth’s blockbuster TV debut with an Into The Wild with Bear Grylls motion poster! I have worked with many stars around the world but this one for me was special. Love India.

#ThalaivaOnDiscovery.” Rajinikanth, 69, and Grylls are shown in a closeup with an adventure theme of fire and flying debris in the background. In the 15-second motion poster, Rajinikanth is seen with Grylls resting on the bonnet of an off-road vehicle in the forest. In the next Tweet, the survival instructor also shared that ‘Thalaiva’ has always been a star with swagger, but everything was different in the wild.

“Rajinikanth has always been a star with swagger! But in the wild everything is different… It was so fun to spend time with the legend and get to know and see him in a totally new way…,” said Grylls. He stated that it was fun to spend time with the legendary actor and throughout the shoot for the special episode, he got to know Rajinikanth in a totally new way.

Earlier in January, Rajinikanth suffered minor injuries while shooting for the special episode of Man vs Wild Bandipur forest in Karnataka. After Prime Minister Narendra Modi, Rajinikanth becomes the second Indian personality to be featured on Grylls’ survival show. The episode with Prime Minister Modi was aired last year in August and became quite an attraction among viewers.
