In the special episode, of which we have seen some promos and posters earlier, Rajinikanth and Bear Grylls explore the wilderness of Bandipur National Park. Rajinikanth can be seen not only climbing an old iron bridge, which was 50 feet above the ground but also crossed a water body.

Many people were seen commenting "Age is just a number" looking at all the stunts that Thalaiva is doing.

One said, "Just watched the premiere. Wow! What a beautiful soul you are Thalaiva...so stylish and charming even in the woods," while another wrote, "The tasks may not have been too tough... Still, Mr Rajinikanth at his age completed them! And all his talk was quite endearing. Good one, Bear Grylls!"

The special episode was shot in January. It was then reported that Rajinikanth suffered minor injuries while shooting but the actor then clarified that those were “only scratches due to thorns”. He had then said, "I have finished shooting for the 'Man vs Wild' episode. I have not received any wounds but some scratches due to little thorns. I am alright.”
