Soon after yesterday's shoot reports suggested that Superstar Rajinikanth had suffered injuries during the shoot, however, Rajinikanth denied the reports and said that he was perfectly fine. He said, "I have finished the shooting of an episode of 'Man vs Wild' has not received any wounds but just scratches due to little thorns, that's it. I am alright". Bear Grylls also praised Thalaiva for his determination and said that the superstar never gave up during the shoot.
After Rajinikanth, actor Akshay Kumar is also reported to appear on the show, however, nothing has been confirmed yet.
Last year PM Narendra Modi became the first India to feature on the show and shot for the episode at the Jim Corbett National Park in Uttarakhand. PM Modi talked about his past life and said that time spent in the Himalayas during his earl days developed him and changed his perception to look at things.
