“I have always admired Bear Grylls for his energy, passion and what he has stood for all these years. It was a humbling experience being with him in the wild as he went about unfolding one challenge after another. It is different out there, as compared to movie sets, as there is no back-up — that sense of realism is very overpowering,” said Kumar in an interview with ANI.

‘Into The Wild With Bear Grylls’ featuring Kumar will premiere on September 11 on Discovery Plus App and September 14 on Discovery Channel in India.
