When it is about adventure, one cannot forget the name of Bollywood’s ‘Khiladi’, Akshay Kumar. And so was the case with Grylls, For his third episode with an Indian celebrity, Grylls featured none other than the industry’s ‘International Khiladi’ in it. Akshay did not just find adventure on the show, but ‘brotherhood’ too. The actor had written to his fans on social media about how not to expect fireworks when an adventurer meets an ‘action junkie’, since all they found was ‘brotherhood’ between them. It was in September last year when the episode feature Akshay went on air.
Next up on Bear Grylls’ list of Indian guests is none other than Ajay Devgn, who is known for his action-packed films, similar to Akshay. Ajay’s episode was recently aired by Discovery, roughly around two weeks ago.
Now, Discovery has roped in actor Vicky Kaushal for its latest show, and as the fifth Indian guest. Vicky shared a poster of the upcoming episode on his Instagram handle.

With these adventurous men already on the list, it will be interesting to see if Bear Grylls and Discovery have plans to rope in a Bollywood actress also or not.
