‘Animals Gone Wild’ with Jaaved Jaaferi comes to Nat Geo India

The show, presenting the most thrilling content from the wild, will premiere on 22 March.

MUMBAI: National Geographic has been on a mission to provide unique insights into the natural world and the amazing creatures that inhabit it. With a whole new approach to its authentic style of storytelling, the network is bringing Animals Gone Wild with the inimitable Jaaved Jaaferi, who will take the viewers into the unexplained and unexpected world of the animal kingdom.

Premiering on 22 March at 8pm on National Geographic Channel in India, the show will have Jaaferi weave in his signature style of humour, wit and comedy while showcasing the most jaw-dropping and thrilling content captured of the wild animals. Adopting three entertaining, endearing and quirky avatars of Tony Tiewala – an old-school newscaster, Camouflage Ray – a wildlife filmmaker along with Gullu Guide – a dubious guide; he will uncover intriguing animal behaviour while providing fact-based and an in-depth understanding of the beast that will push the boundaries of how the world perceives the world of animals in a fun manner.

“With Animals Gone Wild with Jaaved Jaaferi, we thought of approaching our storytelling a little differently; taking our viewers on yet another enriching and entertaining journey into the animal world with the witty and humorous touch of Jaaved while staying true to our ethos. We hope that our efforts will help the viewers better understand and care about the wonders of life on earth,” said Star & Disney India infotainment, kids & regional entertainment channels president & head Kevin Vaz.

“We have all grown up watching National Geographic and I am a fan of how they often adopt a compelling and unique style to narrate their stories of the world we live in. I personally am a firm believer and promoter of wild life conservation and with Animals Gone Wild, we brought in a humorous approach to present and create awareness of the life and behaviour of animals around us. It’s an association that I am really truly happy about,” said Jaaferi.
