Vicky Kaushal Is Swimming With Whales In This Show

Global explorer Bear Grylls’ Into The Wild, which is one of the most popular infotainment shows of 2021 on Discovery+, is all set to premiere on television after its digital stint. The show will air on Discovery Channel on November 21 and will feature none other than Vicky Kaushal. The josh will be at an all-time high in this fantastic special with Kaushal on board as they brave the mighty Indian Ocean and expand their horizons in the wilderness.

The show will see famed survivalist Grylls and Bollywood heartthrob Kaushal traverse the dangerous seas and crocodile-infested waters while trying to survive and return to civilization unharmed. The adventure show has featured some stellar personalities in the past, like Ranveer Singh, Rajinikanth, Akshay Kumar and Ajay Devgn.

The Uri:The Surgical Strike actor, who is all set to embark on the adventurous journey, seemed to have conquered his fears as we see the duo exploring aquatic life with whales, sharks, and fish in the promo of the show. In fact, the teaser of the show, that was released a few days ago, showed the actor pulling off derring-do feats. Kaushal called his time with Grylls ‘an experience to remember.’

Sharing the video on Twitter, Discovery channel India wrote, “The heartthrob of our nation gets into the wild with @beargrylls for an adventurous ride in the unknown waters! Watch Into the Wild with Bear Grylls and Vicky Kaushal, Premiers Monday, 21st November, 8 PM on Discovery Channel India. @vickykaushal09“

Vicky said, “Going on this survival journey with the well-known explorer Bear Grylls was a tremendous experience. Without him, I would not have been able to overcome my apprehension about swimming in this vast ocean. This trip also represents a significant turning point in my life because it allowed me to face and overcome one of my many phobias. It is difficult to imagine yourself floating in the middle of the ocean without a solid surface underneath you, but Bear’s constant inspiration and persistence encouraged me to win over this.”

The upcoming episode will be released on November 21 on Discovery Channel India. Meanwhile, on the work front, the actor has a series of projects lined up, including director Laxman Utekar’s next untitled romantic drama with Sara Ali Khan and Karan Johar’s Govinda Naam Mera alongside Bhumi Pednekar and Kiara Advani.

The actor also has Sam Bahadur, a biopic film based on the life of late Field Marshal Sam Manekshaw, one of the most decorated army officers in India, co-starring Dangal girls Fatima Sana Shaikh and Sanya Malhotra.
