Motion poster of Rajini’s TV debut released

Chennai: The motion poster of actor Rajinikanth’s upcoming television debut, ”Into The Wild with Bear Grylls” was released today. It was unveiled by Bear Grylls who shared it on his Twitter page today.

The special episode featuring Rajinikanth with Bear Grylls, who hosts the popular survival show ‘Man vs Wild’ in Discovery Channel was shot at Bandipur National Park, a tiger reserve in Karnataka during January this year.

Sharing the motion poster, Bear 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’. He added, ‘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…”

The 15 second motion poster shows Bear Grylls sitting at the bonnet of a jeep while Rajinikanth, in a never seen before attire, posing stylishly by leaning onto it from the other side.

Last year, Grylls’ show featured Prime Minister Narendra Modi as a special guest and Rajini becomes the second Indian and the first ever actor from the country to feature in the show.
