One of the users wrote, “Age is just a number”.

In January, Rajinikanth suffered minor injuries while shooting for the special episode of ‘Man vs Wild’ Bandipur forest in Karnataka. After Prime Minister Narendra Modi, Rajinikanth becomes the second Indian personality to be featured on Grylls’ survival show.
In the teasers shared before, Rajinikanth was seen riding an All-Terrain Vehicle (ATV) in the jungle, donning a black cap, white stubble and dark sunglasses in a roofless Willys off-road vehicle.
In January, Rajinikanth visited Karnataka’s Bandipur Tiger Reserve to shoot for the Discovery channel’s new program. The Discovery channel took permission from the Karnataka forest department to shoot in the Bandipur tiger reserve.
The episode with Prime Minister Modi was aired last year in August and became quite an attraction among viewers.
