The Khiladi of Bollywood aka Akshay Kumar stays true to his name even today. He still does most of his own stunts if not all and he is the flag bearer of healthy living and fitness. So it’s only natural for British survival instructor and Adventurer Bear Grylls to invite the superstar as his guest on his popular show Into The Wild. The actor has shared a preview of the episode on his Instagram as well. In the video, you see Akshay in action with Bear like climbing up trees and even drinking elephant poop tea with the adventurer. He also reveals that his biggest inspiration and role model in his life is his father. He also talks about how he always has a special place in his heart for people in uniforms who work to defend our country.
Now in a recent live session with Bear Grylls and Huma Qureshi, he talked about a time when he had swum with sharks and just about nearly missed getting killed by them. During their chat, Huma asked Akshay the three stunts he would do if he woke up as Bear Grylls and Akshay was quick to say that it would be swimming with whales. Reacting to this, Bear asked how it would be if it was sharks to which the actor replied that he has already done that while he was shooting for his movie Blue. Then he went on to say that he had quite a big incident while swimming with sharks.
The actor recalled hitting his head on a rock and blood gushing out while he was underwater and how there was chaos. But he got saved.
Huma also asked him how Bear had convinced him to drink elephant poop tea during their adventure in the forest. The actor replied that he was too excited to be worried about it.
Akshay and Huma are currently shooting for their upcoming movie Bell Bottom in Scotland. Akshay’s episode of Into The Wild premiers 11th September 2020 on Discovery + at 8 PM and on 14th September on Discovery.
