Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Sunday finally cleared the air on how he conversed with Bear Grylls in the special episode of ‘Man Vs Wild’ since the famed adventurer does not understand Hindi. After watching the show, aired on August 12, many had pondered whether Grylls understood Hindi. However, PM Modi, in his Mann ki Baat address, said technology helped bridge the communication gap between them.
