As excited we should have been to watch this episode to air, but it all went away as this shocking news came. It was alleged that PM Modi was shooting for the show in Corbett National Park in February 14 hours after our 40 CRPF Jawans got killed in the Pulwama bomb blast that took place in Jammu and Kashmir.

The opposition party did not miss a chance to attack Modi, Shama Mohammed, Congress Spokesperson tweeted-
When 44 CRPF jawans were martyred in #Pulwama, PM #Modi was having the time of his life shooting for this programme. He was enjoying it so much, that he continued shooting even after being told of the heinous attack! See him laughing carelessly in the trailer! https://t.co/5hSQtJov4h

Things did not end here, Twitter took a stroll and netizens tweeted their disappointments as well.
We ain’t proud of it, Cos when he was busy marketing himself we had lost 40 of our Brave Jawans to Terrorist attack in #Pulwama.

If I am not wrong, this was shot in Corbett when Pulwama happened.
Utterly shocking and Shameful if this is the case.
