In January 2020, Akshay Kumar came to Mysore for the shoot of 'Into the Wild with Bear Grylls' in Karnataka's Bandipur Tiger Reserve. Discovery Channel has secured consent from the Karnataka government for shooting the episode in the forest between January 28 and January 30. The Bollywood star had completed a six-hour schedule on a one day tour of Bandipur Tiger Reserve.
Before Akshay Kumar, Superstar Rajinikanth was featured in the adventurous show, which had become his debut show on TV, the episode with the superstar was also shot in the Bandipur Tiger Reserve. The tiger reserve is a home for 28 species of mammals like Asian Elephant, Royal Bengal Tiger, barking deer, leopard, Indian pipistrelle, and macaques.
The Tiger Reserve was established in 1941 and is an 874 square kilometer national part that sits 220 kilometers southwest of the state's capital Bangalore. In 2019, Prime Minister Narendra Modi had featured in the episode with Bear Grylls and they toured Jim Corbett National Park in Uttarakhand. Titled 'Man vs Wild with Bear Grylls and PM Modi', the episode has become one of the most-watched shows of 2019 in India. Describing his tour with Akshay Kumar, Bear Grylls said, "Life is an adventure that is best lived boldly, and there are few better (madder) adventure buddies than the legendary @akshaykumar".
