Akshay Meets Bear Grylls In The Wild
When asked about how he found Bear Grylls in the forest, Akshay said, "This [show] is the first time we have met. The Discovery people gave me compass and said go and find him. It was easy because I had to find a white man wearing a black t-shirt in an Indian jungle."
Akshay also added that the highlight of the show, for him, was "crossing the stream with a small litttle rope" as well as the crocodiles part.
Bear Grylls Speak Hindi
Upon a fan's special request, Akshay Kumar agreed to give Bear Grylls a crash course in Hindi. Grylls insisted that he wanted Akshay to teach him the phrase "Never give up" in Hindi. Akshay happily obliged and taught him how to say "Zindagi mein kabhi peeche hatna mat."
