National Film Award Winner Vicky Kaushal who is known for portraying intense and tough roles has surely a lot of surprises for his fans as this time the actor would be seen revealing some unheard facts about himself on discovery+ ‘s ‘Into the Wild with Bear Grylls S2. Not only does he face his biggest fear but also gives the audience a glimpse into other unknown aspects of his life:

Before embarking on an expedition amidst the Indian Ocean, Vicky says, “I have a major fear for deep sea water and we’re right in the middle of it right now. I’ve never actually in my life got into sea water. Not even shallow sea water nor deep sea water. Never! If we are going into sea water then it’s going to be my first time and hopefully, I’ll be getting rid of my fears.”

Talking about his childhood, Vicky says, “I grew up in a house which was practically the size of a little bigger than this Shack that we’ve created. A 10 by 10 house with no separate kitchen or bathroom. That’s where I was born. And from thereon it has been my family’s journey. And we’ve seen each step of the ladder, you know, as a family. And that I think makes you a very strong person in the journey.”

On being asked by Bear about his father wanting him to become an actor, Vicky said, “Actually, I have been an engineering student and he was very happy seeing his kid become an engineer. Because nobody in my family before me has ever done a 9 to 5 job where they get monthly pay checks, where they get weekends off so they can plan family time. In the second year of my graduation, the faculty took me to an industrial visit to show us what the future is like and how companies work and all that and I went there, and till that time I was actually a rat in the race. But the day I went there I saw people working over there in front of computers, I just couldn’t feel that and for the first time in my life I just was very sure of something that I don’t belong here.”

Amidst their conversation, Bear caught hold of a crab to fuel up and help in keeping them going. It was the very first time Vicky ever ate a raw crab, he said, “I’m eating crab, raw crab, jo life maine kabhi na kiya hai na kabhi socha tha ki main karunga, but agar aap jungle mein ho, survive kar rahe ho toh survival ka ek hissa hai ki apna khaana aap khud dhoondiye. We are not going to get a boufe on a platter, so this is what it is.”
