In the episode, when Grylls asks him what it must be like for Akshay's son, considering how famous his father is, here's what Akshay says:

“My son is very different. I mean, he just doesn't want to tell anyone that he's my son. He wants to be away from the limelight. He wants to have his own identity. That's what the whole thing and I understand it. So, I let him be the way he wants to.”

Akshay also confessed that he hopes to be able to teach his son the same lessons that he got from his father.

"He's (Akshay’s father) the only influence I have in my life and I've followed all his rules and all his things that he has taught me. And I hope my son gets that.”
