When Akshay Kumar Had Elephant Poop Tea; The ‘Khiladi’ Shares Trailer Of ‘Into The Wild With Bear Grylls’


New Delhi: Actor Akshay Kumar on Monday shared the trailer of his upcoming feature with British adventurer Bear Grylls for Discovery channel’s ‘Into The Wild With Bear Grylls’.

The actor took to Twitter to share the trailer of the upcoming episode of the show and shared how Grylls surprised him with a unique tea. “I visualized stiff challenges prior to #IntoTheWildWithBearGrylls but @bearGrylls completely surprised me with the elephant poop tea. What a day @DiscoveryIn @DiscoveryPlusIn,” he tweeted.

The feature, ‘Into The Wild with Bear Grylls and Akshay Kumar’, has been shot at Bandipur Tiger Reserve.’ It will follow military-style drills, with former British military personnel Bear Grylls, reported The New Indian Express (TNIE).
“I have always admired Bear Grylls for his energy, passion and what he has stood for all these years. It was a humbling experience being with him in the wild as he went about unfolding one challenge after another. It is different out there, as compared to movie sets, as there is no back-up – that sense of realism is very overpowering,” said TNIE quoting Akshay Kumar from an ANI report.
The episode will also raise awareness about a cause close to Akshay Kumar’s heart — ‘Bharat Ke Veer’, a fund-raising initiative by the Ministry of Home Affairs, Government of India.
“What I found interesting about the show is how nicely purpose is incorporated in an entertaining, survival and adventure led show. With regards to Bharat Ke Veer, it is a project, which remains close to my heart and I will continue to use all opportunities to help promote it with an aim to ensure that more and more countrymen become a part of it,” the ‘Khiladi’ actor was quoted as saying by TNIE.

Here is what Grylls had to say about Akshay Kumar. “I did my homework prior to meeting Akshay and knew he is a superstar, but what struck me the most during our time together, was his humility, his easy approach – he is, at heart, still that guy next door. Lots of commonalities between the two of us – including passion towards fitness, dedication to family et al, I really enjoyed being with him.”

“Akshay’s eyes lit-up with the mention of a new challenge and believe me, not many celebrities, across the world, have reacted so warmly to some harsh tasks that I can conjure,” added Grylls in the TNIE report.

The special show will premiere on September 11 on Discovery Plus App and September 14 on Discovery Channel.
