Bollywood actor Akshay Kumar is all set to feature in an episode of Into the Wild with Bear Grylls. On Friday, Khiladi Kumar took to his social media accounts to announce the news.
Akshay shared a 20-second motion poster, giving a sneak peek into the upcoming episode. The video opens in a jungle amid crocodiles, followed by shots of Akshay Kumar and Bear Grylls. Kumar and Grylls are then seen swinging from a tree, as the poster reveals that the episode will air on September 11 at 8 pm on the Discovery+ app, and on Discovery channel on September 14.
Akshay Kumar captioned the post, “You thinking I mad… but mad only going into the wild. #IntoTheWildWithBearGrylls.”
Bear Grylls shared the video and captioned his post by using the hashtag #KhiladionDiscovery. Bear’s tweet read, “Life is an adventure that is best lived boldly, and there are few better (madder 😁😉) adventure buddies than the legendary @akshaykumar #KhiladiOnDiscovery #IntoTheWildwithBearGrylls @DiscoveryPlusIn @DiscoveryIN.”
As per sources, the shoot for the episode was completed in January in Bandipur National Park and Tiger Reserve. Before Akshay Kumar, superstar Rajinikanth had also featured in an episode of Into the Wild. While Rajnikanth championed the cause of water conservation, Akshay Kumar too would be seen promoting a cause in his episode. As readers would remember, Prime Minister Narendra Modi was also a guest on the show.
