Bear Grylls and Ajay Devgan travelled to the Indian Ocean which is full of sharks to face the severe weather conditions and eventually moved towards uninhabited islands during the shoot.
Ajay said that his short break to the Indian Ocean worked for him in many ways, adding It was his first trip in “Into the wild’ with Bear Grylls. He added that he had done dangerous things in the film from the start of his career 30 years ago but pointed out that what he did with Bear for ITW was altogether different.

Speaking about the most difficult moment from the show, the actor said: "Well, there was so much nervous energy within me when I was doing my stunts with Bear, I can't recollect each moment separately. Overall, I can tell you when I was in the middle of the deep ocean and Bear was trying to come in a helicopter to rescue me and take me to an island nearby, the waters were perilous. The wind of the chopper machine and the pressure of the water in which I was immersed neck deep was very dangerous. Of course, I had full faith in Bear but I must confess, I could barely keep my head above the water."
"I took it up because I am a huge fan of Bear Grylls. He is a master adventurer; he is a great human being and a daredevil. I wanted to spend time in nature and who better than Bear as a companion, said Ajay, when asked about why he took the offer to appear in the show," he added.
