NEW DELHI - A special screening of the new reality show “Mission Army- Desh Ke Rakshak” was held here Wednesday in the presence of Chief of Army Staff V.K. Singh and other top brass of the military.
The show was launched in October last year at India Gate in the capital and premieres this Monday at 10 p.m. on the National Geographic channel in English, Hindi, Bangla and Telugu, an official said.
“We have shot across all terrains in the country and will take our viewers into territories where no civilian has got access. It was an humbling experience for all of us and our belief in the Indian Army has increased manifold,” managing director of Fox International Channels (India) Keertan Adyanthaya said.
Participants from all over the country underwent a gruelling test and five have made it to the finals. Only one of them will be successful in becoming a part of the Indian military training team abroad, added the official.
