Discovery+ dropped the teaser for Into the Wild with Bear Grylls and Ajay Devgn on Monday much to the excitement of the fans. Shot entirely in the Maldives, the show will see Ajay joining Grylls and performing daredevil stunts amid the blue ocean. After Prime Minister Narendra Modi, Superstar Rajinikanth and Akshay Kumar, Ajay has become the fourth Indian to join Grylls in this amazing and adventurous journey.
As per reports in Indian Express, during the trailer launch of the show, Ajay had revealed that his son Yug Devgan was quite excited about this collaboration. The actor stated, "Yug was most excited when he got to know that I am shooting with Bear. I don’t know how he knows so much about him. When I told Bear about Yug, he was kind enough to shoot a video. Yug was so excited to see it."
Ajay also revealed that he spoke about his experience to his kids Nys Devgn and Yug. He shared with them that Grylls had him eat raw fish during their adventure.
The Singham actor further narrated that he shot at a location dominated by sharks and it was during unfavourable weather. Ajay said that like how they plan film shootings, they know what they are going to do. During a film shoot, there are rehearsals and then they have retakes too. But while shooting with Grylls, they didn't know what they were going to do. He said at least I didn't and there were no retakes, he had to take chances.
The actor-filmmaker added, "It was kind of dangerous, anything could have happened. We were into the wild, into unknown territory. Bear still knew a little bit about it but I was completely unaware of everything. It was scary, it was fun."
The episode will air on October 22, 2021, on discovery+ streaming platform.
