2 min read

Chamarajanagar: Even as Tamil superstar Rajinikanth and wildlife film maker Bear Grylls are shooting for a show on wildlife in  Bandipur Forest, environmentalist Joseph Hoover ( in pic above) has taken a severe exception. 

The forest was on fire last time. It’s not okay to shoot while the forest personnel are working hard to save the forest, said Hoover.

Rajinikanth and adventurer Grylls are shooting for the Man V/s Wild show to be aired on discovery channel. 

The goverment should be the first to save the forest and promote eco-tourism, said Hoover who has urged the Tamil Nadu government to stop night safari in Madhumalai.
Shooting in four zones: The show will be shot for six hours in Bandipur Tiger Protected Area- Kundakere Lake, G S Betta, Maddur and Moolehole zones. The shooting will take place in for three days and the crew has already got permission.
Earlier Prime Minister Modi had posed for the camera for a similar show and it’s Rajini now to be a part of environment awareness. However, confidentiality is being maintained over the exact location of the shooting.

The then Congress government of Chief Minister R Gundurao had issued permission to shoot “Huliya Haalina Mevu” a Kannada film starring Dr Rajkumar. Subsequently, the permission was withdrawn after the environmentalists raised a hue and cry. After several years, the permission is given now.
Rajini flew down to Mysuru on January 27 in a special flight. From there he drove to   Bandipur, where he is staying in a resort.
