In this original, the real-life military man turned adventurer Grylls and the reel-life military sensation 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.
The duo is seen navigating the fiery ocean, engaging in an insightful yet revelatory chat where he opens up about himself like never before. Kaushal faces 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.
“Going on this survival journey with the well-known explorer Bear Grylls was a tremendous experience. Without him, I would not have been able to overcome my apprehension about swimming in this vast ocean. This trip also represents a significant turning point in my life because it allowed me to face and overcome one of my many phobias. It is difficult to imagine yourself floating in the middle of the ocean without a solid surface underneath you, but Bear's constant inspiration and persistence encouraged me to win over this,” Kaushal said.
