Akshay Kumar has shared a short trailer for his upcoming episode for Into The Wild with Bear Grylls, and things take a weird turn.

Even though the one-minute trailer showed Akshay Kumar and Bear Grylls making their way through Karnataka’s Bandipur Tiger Reserve and crossing a crocodile-infested river, the highlight still remained the two drinking a cup of ‘elephant poop tea.’

“I visualised stiff challenges prior to Into The Wild… but Bear Grylls completely surprised me with the elephant poop tea. What a day,” the 52-year-old actor wrote.



Grylls is well-known for the eating habits he resorts to in the wild. The survival expert has eaten everything from worms to camel intestines. For this episode, Grylls brewed a cup of tea from elephant poop found in the forest. Survivalists believe the excreta of elephants contain a lot of water, and could be your saving grace in a dry forest with no water.

Akshay Kumnar’s episode on Into the Wild With Bear Grylls will premiere on September 11 on Discovery Plus app and on September 14 on Discovery Channel.
