Mumbai: Discovery India is all set to premiere “Into The Wild with Bear Grylls and Ajay Devgn” on 25 October on Discovery channels and digitally on 22 October via streaming platform discovery+.

The broadcast premiere of the show is scheduled at 8 p.m IST on 14 linear channels including Discovery Channel, Discovery HD, Discovery Tamil, Animal Planet, Animal Planet HD, TLC, TLC HD, Discovery ID, Discovery ID HD, Discovery Science, Discovery Turbo, Discovery Kids, Eurosport, and Eurosport HD. 

The broadcaster has also released a trailer giving a sneak peek into the episode.

“This is my first ever expedition into the wild and I can tell you it wasn’t child’s play!” said Devgn. “My father was an action director and in my career span of 30 years in the Indian industry, I have had the fortune to play several roles including some dangerous action ones too. And, this was one of those times when I had to put those learnings to the test again.”

The special episode has attracted marquee advertisers including Vini Cosmetics and Citroen as 'co-powered by' sponsors. While Dell, Omron Healthcare, Spotify, and Amazon Alexa have come on board as 'associate' sponsors, LIC is the 'partner' sponsor for the title.

“Into the Wild with Bear Grylls is one of our most acclaimed and loved series and with the new episode, the motive was clear - to make it bigger, better and widen our audience base. The show has been appreciated worldwide and we expect to land big with this special season,” said Discovery Inc managing director – South Asia Megha Tata.

Produced by The Natural Studios and Banijay Asia, the show will be available in seven languages including English, Hindi, Tamil, Telugu, Bangla, Malayalam, and Kannada. The episode will exclusively premiere on discovery+ India and the Philippines followed by other EMEA regions, including the United Kingdom, Netherlands, Poland, Italy, Denmark, Finland, Norway, and Sweden. It will also be showcased on Discovery’s network of channels in over 140 countries.

“To get to take the legendary Ajay into the wild and have an adventure with him was a privilege,” said Bear Grylls. “Desert islands are always tough to survive on and Ajay showed total commitment to do what we needed to get out in one piece. He was also incredibly honest, sharing so many insights into his life and career and I value that honesty so much.”

“Into The Wild with Bear Grylls” has featured many recognised faces in the Indian film industry including Rajinikanth, Akshay Kumar, and also featured India’s prime minister Narendra Modi.
