In this exclusive discovery+ original, the real-life military man turned adventurer Bear Grylls and the reel-life military sensation Vicky Kaushal embark on a survival expedition that begins in a cluster of mangroves dominated by crocodiles, sharks and snakes including the uncertain tides and weather.
As the currents of challenges buzz in their dormant strength, the duo is seen navigating their way whilst engaging in a cozy, yet revelatory chat where he opens-up about himself like never before. Vicky is faced with challenges he has never thought of in his wildest dreams and is attempting to face his deep-sea water phobia and conquer it on this adrenaline-filled expedition.
“It was a wonderful experience going on this survival expedition with the world-famous adventurer Bear Grylls. If it wasn’t for him, I would have not been able to defeat my fear of swimming in this vast ocean. This journey also marks an incredibly significant chapter in my life as I was able to overcome and conquer one of my many fears. The thought of being in the middle of an ocean and not having a floor beneath you is not easy, but Bear’s constant motivation and determination has helped me rise out of this triumphantly,” Vicky Kaushal shares his experience on this extreme adventure.
“Vicky was an incredible guest on so many levels… not only were we in some of the most hostile mangrove swamps on earth, but he also had to face open ocean swimming with sharks in the water, which was a huge obstacle for him! His story and his route to super stardom, is so humbling, and his warm, infectious spirit is always inspiring. You get to see a very raw, personal side of Vicky on this journey, and I am so proud of how he truly conquered his fears,” said Bear Grylls on his adventure with Vicky Kaushal.
