The trailer of Into The Wild with Bear Grylls episode featuring actor Ajay Devgn is out. In the trailer, the duo is seen embarking on an adventure on a deserted island and also on water, surrounded by sharks.
“If we see a shark, stay calm,” Grylls tells Devgn in the trailer. It’s going to be fun,” says Devgn while Grylls packs a punch with a Hindi word: “My stage, my ilaka,” he says.
In a statement, Devgn said the show helped him explore and go beyond his comfort zone. “This is my first ever expedition into the wild and I can tell you it wasn’t child’s play! My father was an action director and in my career span of 30 years in the Indian industry, I have had the fortune to play several roles including some dangerous action ones too. And, this was one of those times when I had to put those learnings to the test again. I’m so glad this opportunity came my way, it helped me explore and go beyond my comfort zone. A special salute to Bear who has been inspiring millions to explore and develop a much-needed relationship with nature, and of course to keep me safe in the wild. From hungry jungles to the depths of the ocean, Bear knows it all!”
Proud to share a glimpse of our adventure in the Indian Ocean for #IntoTheWild with the legend that is @ajaydevgn From surviving on a deserted island, to swimming with sharks, as you say: it’s not just a game bro! 😁 Premiering Oct 22 @discoveryplusIN and on 25 Oct @DiscoveryIN pic.twitter.com/Vwl1tu93Ei— Bear Grylls (@BearGrylls) October 12, 2021
Grylls said Devgn is a quiet man, but ‘with great love and strength in his heart’. He said: “To get to take the legendary actor Ajay Devgn into the wild and have an adventure with him was a privilege. Desert islands are always tough to survive on and Ajay showed total commitment to do what we needed to get out in one piece. He was also incredibly honest, sharing so many insights into his life and career and I value that honesty so much. One thing that I’ve learnt about Ajay is that he is a quiet man, but he is a man with great love and strength in his heart,” Bear Grylls said about working with Ajay Devgn.
The Into The Wild episode featuring Devgn will exclusively premiere on Discovery+ on October 22.
