It is often said, ‘no pain, no gain’: this is well experienced by our daredevil Khiladi actor Akshay Kumar in Discovery’s latest episode of Into The Wild with Bear Grylls and Akshay Kumar which is all set to premiere on 11th September at 8 pm on the Discovery Plus App and 14th September at 8 pm across 12 Discovery network channels. The superstar bruised himself while performing a survival skill of climbing a rope ladder at the extraction point, following an adventurous journey through Bandipur Tiger Reserve.

This was a unique and challenging experience for Akshay Kumar as he had never done this before and learnt a new technique to climb up such a ladder. He expressed his feelings and said, “I’ve never climbed this. I’ve climbed a lot of ladders, but never one foot ahead, one foot behind. This is going to be the first time I’m going to try doing this,” he said.

Upon successfully landing on the bridge, Akshay exclaimed, “The climb was very good. Really enjoyed myself. Learnt something new, how to climb. One foot ahead, one foot behind, that’s something new which I learnt.” “And here it is, a memento,” said Akshay pointing towards a bruise he got while climbing up the rope ladder with a new technique.
