New 'Into The Wild' teaser features Akshay and "elephant-poop tea"
A fresh teaser of the upcoming special episode of Bear Grylls's Into The Wild featuring Bollywood star Akshay Kumar is now out. Loaded with the charisma and style of the renowned British adventurer and India's favorite action hero, the episode promises to be an entertainer. Akshay shared the teaser earlier today, and fans are totally loving it. Here's more on this.
The daredevil duo goes on a mad adventure
The short clip starts with Grylls introducing Akshay as a legend known for his action flicks. The "daredevil duo" then goes on a mad adventure, where they are seen roaming through the jungle, crossing crocodile-infested water bodies, and...drinking "elephant poop tea" (that's right). Toward the end of the video, Akshay says that he would remember the experience for the "rest of my life."
'Completely surprised me with that tea'
Sharing the teaser on his social media accounts, Akshay wrote, "I knew there would be stiff challenges prior to Into The Wild With Bear Grylls but he completely surprised me with the elephant poop tea. What a day!"

'The sense of realism is very overpowering'
Talking about the show, Akshay praised Grylls and said the experience was overpowering. "I have always admired Bear Grylls for his energy, passion and what he has stood for all these years. It was a humbling experience being with him in the wild as he went about unfolding one challenge after another. It is different out there...as there is no back-up," he said.
