It’s clear that Akshay Kumar and Bear Grylls had an adventurous time while shooting the latest episode of Into The Wild with Bear Grylls. But the two also sat down to talk about their lives, while sipping on some elephant poop tea.

Kumar talked about his family, especially about his eldest son Aarav. The actor revealed that his son wants to stay away from the media and create his own identity. “My son is very different. He just doesn’t want to tell anyone that he’s my son. He wants to be away from the limelight. He wants to have his own identity. That’s what the whole thing and I understand it. So, I let him be the way he wants to,” the actor told Grylls.

Kumar added that he hoped his son inculcates the values he learnt from his father. “He’s (my father was) the only influence I have in my life and I’ve followed all his rules and all his things that he has taught me. And I hope my son gets that,” said Kumar.

The actor also made another shocking revelation on an Instagram live session with his adventure partner Bear Grylls. The actor was in Scotland, shooting for his new film BellBottom, and his co-actor Huma Qureshi joined the live session. When Qureshi asked him about his experience drinking elephant poop tea, Kumar revealed that he wasn’t worried because he drinks cow urine everyday.

“I wasn’t worried. I was too excited to be worried. I have cow urine because of ayurvedic reasons every day, so that was okay,” he said.
