Akshay Kumar, Bear Grylls wrap up shoot in forest of Mysuru.

Bollywood star Akshay Kumar, like Prime Minister Narendra Modi and superstar Rajinikanth before him, we will soon see him in an episode for Discovery’s show Man vs Wild. As per reports, Akshay has already reached Mysuru where he will shoot for an episode at the Bandipur Tiger Reserve.
 
A Bollywood Hungama report quoted a source as saying, “Akshay Kumar makes for an ideal guest on Man Vs Wild. He’s agile, energetic and quite fit as we all know. He can easily roam around in the difficult terrain of the forest and make for a great company with Bear Grylls. Akshay hopes to learn the survival techniques from Bear. The British adventurer too hopes to imbibe some of his admirable qualities. We assure it’ll be an episode to watch out for!”
 
The Bandipur forest was in the news as three celebrities - Rajinikanth, Akshay Kumar, and Bear Grylls - were shooting for a popular wildlife program.
 
"There was a rope cross over Moolehole River and Akshay Kumar checked out parts of Tiger Road in the core area of Bandipur and Rampura elephant camp. They also shot near an old railway track and a bridge. Akshay got into the river with Grylls during the shoot," a forest official said.
 
While Grylls left around 3 pm for Gundlupet from where he took a chopper to Bengaluru, Akshay left Bandipur forest around 4 pm.
 
Balachandra told TOI that all the three said they had never experienced a forest tour like in Bandipur. Rajinikanth was nostalgic about the place where he had shot a Kannada movie with Vishnurvardhan over 40 years ago. Soon after leaving Bandipur, Bear Grylls tweeted: "Always proud to be a friend of India."
