Following in the footsteps of Akshay Kumar, Vicky Kaushal and even PM Modi, Ranveer Singh is set to become the next face of Discovery’s Man against Naturewith Bear Grylls.
The Netflix-related show released a trailer earlier this Friday:
This time around, the nature-reality show takes us deep into the forests of Serbia, where Singh is in search of a rare, “immortal” flower for his wife, actress Deepika Padukone.
“For love, people are ready to get the moon and the stars,” Singh breathes into a camera. “I’m going to pick a flower for Deepika. It’s a rare flower, and like my love for it, it never dies.
The trailer expands on what previous teasers have shown us, with glimpses of Singh’s encounters with wolves, bears, and survival skills like rappelling and cave exploring. Many of these segments are filmed in an interactive format that allows viewers to choose between two options, with Singh “calling” us directly for help.
The producers really put Singh to the test, as the actor apparently finds himself going through some rather gross on-screen moments, including accidentally smearing his forehead in wolf droppings to have to choose between enjoying a courses of pus-filled maggots or boar testicles for dinner. – joint price, given that it is a Bear Grylls show.
Speaking about his experience working with Singh, Grylls said, “I’m thrilled to be working with Ranveer. He is an extremely talented actor and a fireball of energy. The best part about him is his insatiable thirst for growth and adventure. With Netflix, Ranveer and I are excited to bring the ultimate adventure to audiences around the world.
Forced out of his comfort zone, Singh will star for 70 minutes for the thrilling new feature film. Fans seemed annoyed by the possibility of sending Ranveer into deadly situations…even though the show is obviously quite scripted.
“I have nothing to fear when I have my friends with me.” – Ranveer Singh
