"This man left but how will we go?"
Ranveer Singh is heading into the harsh forests of Serbia with Bear Grylls for the Netflix interactive special Ranveer vs Wild with Bear Grylls.
In a teaser trailer, Ranveer fends for himself and learns new survival skills as he ventures into the wild to find a rare flower for his wife Deepika Padukone.
Ranveer is guided by Bear Grylls and is also seen being chased by bears.
In the trailer, Ranveer is seen looking scared and panting. The next clip shows him being chased by a bear.
Bear is also seen on a zipline saying:
“Ranveer is about to get a full adventure.”
As Ranveer watches him leave, he says: “This man left but how will we go?”
He then goes on the zipline.
Like the Black Mirror episode ‘Bandersnatch’, the upcoming Netflix special will be interactive, allowing viewers to pick the course of Ranveer’s adventure.
For example, in one frame, Ranveer was seen playing dead while a bear inspected him while in another, he is dancing.
The options read ‘play dead’ and ‘dance for the bears’.
The next scene gave the option to choose between a grappling gun and a flare. Ranveer then said:
“Press the button and save me.”
The show is produced by Banijay Asia in association with The Natural Studios, which Bear launched as a joint venture in 2020.
Monika Shergill, VP, Content, Netflix India, said:
“Netflix brings India’s first-ever interactive adventure special that will give audiences all over the world the controls to test Ranveer Singh, as he pushes his boundaries in this adrenaline-pumping experience of a lifetime.”
Deepak Dhar, Founder and CEO of Banijay Asia added:
“Ranveer vs Wild is a huge step in pushing the envelope of interactive reality TV and we are elated to bring this exciting special to Netflix members across the world.
“While the world is familiar with Ranveer’s electrifying spirit and adventurous side, with this show, we’ll see the best of both sides coming out as he embarks on his quest for love.”
Ranveer vs Wild with Bear Grylls releases on July 8, 2022.
