Regarding experience on the show, Akshay has said “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 compared to movie sets, as there is no back-up – that sense of realism is very overpowering. Bear is a knowledge reservoir – and he dipped well into his knowledge of surviving in the wild, and shared interesting and new techniques with me.”
Later on, he has also added “What I found interesting about the show is how nicely purpose is incorporated in an entertaining, survival and adventure led show.

Lots of commonalities between the two of us – including passion towards fitness, dedication to family et al, I really enjoyed being with him. Akshay’s eyes lit-up with the mention of a new challenge and believe me, not many celebrities, across the world, have reacted so warmly to some harsh tasks that I can conjure.”
