Television host and survival expert Bear Grylls has praised Ajay Devgn and called him a 'family man'. The two will be seen together on an upcoming episode of 'Into The Wild With Bear Grylls' episode.
"He is truly humble, determined and a true family man. I had the privilege of getting to know his journey. His story was very inspiring. People are going to witness the ‘unglossy’ side of him,” Bear said, as per a report in The Indian Express.
Bear even mentioned how his son Yug would be ‘proud’ of him after watching the episode. To this, Ajay added that when he had shot for the show in the Maldives, Yug, too, had accompanied him on the trip.
"I did share my experience. I told them (son Yug and daughter Nysa) how Bear made me eat raw fish. Yug was most excited when he got to know that I am shooting with Bear. I don’t know how he knows so much about him. When I told Bear about Yug, he was kind enough to shoot a video. Yug was so excited to see it,” Ajay said.
Shot in the Indian Ocean, the episode features the 52-year-old actor embarking on a survival experience that begins in a sea "dominated by sharks and unfavourable weather" and eventually moves to uninhabited islands.
"We plan film shootings, we know what we are going to do, there are rehearsals and then we have retakes. Here, we didn't know what we were going to do, at least I didn't. There were no retakes, you had to take chances," he said.
Bear added that shooting for the episode was a challenge for the team as contrary to the perception, an uninhabited island is not always a "paradise".
"They are like natures' fortresses guarded by sharks in the water, big reefs... harsh terrain and harsh climates. Ajay was very much in the deep end of this. I have huge respect for Ajay for putting himself in such a situation. It is an intimidating place to drop into on so many levels. He has a true warrior spirit and a humble heart," he said.
