Megastar Rajinikanth suffered minor bruises on Tuesday when he was shooting for adventurer Bear Grylls’s survival show ‘Man vs Wild’. He is the second Indian personality to be featured on the Discovery Channel programme after Prime Minister Narendra Modi appeared on the show last year in August.
Widely regarded as one of the most popular actors in South India, Rajinikanth – also known as Thalaivaa (leader) – began shooting for the special episode on Tuesday in forests around Karnataka’s Mysore. “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,” he told reporters at Chennai airport after the shoot, news agency ANI reported.
In a clip shared by news agency ANI, he was seen in a blue jacket and grey track pants, carrying a cross-body bag.
