Bollywood superstar Akshay Kumar has revealed during an Instagram Live session that he drinks cow urine everyday for ayurvedic reasons. Currently shooting for his upcoming film, Bell Bottom, in Scotland, the live session was hosted by his co-star Huma Qureshi, which saw British adventurer Bear Grylls take part and speak in detail about their jungle adventure not long back. 

Akshay Kumar had collaborated with the world-renowned adventurer to shoot an episode of his popular programme, Into the Wild with Bear Grylls, which will be premiering on September 11 on Discovery+. During the Instagram Live session, Huma Qureshi asked Akshay Kumar how he managed to convince himself to drink elephant poop tea while shooting for the show. Akshay replied, "I wasn't worried. I was too excited to be worried." He then added saying, "I have cow urine because of ayurvedic reasons every day, so that was okay." The upcoming adventure episode of Into the Wild with Bear Grylls was shot with Akshay Kumar across Bandipur Tiger Reserve in Karnataka. 

One of the busiest actors in the country, Akshay Kumar also went on to confess saying shooting for the episode with Grylls was a major "highlight for him". The Instagram Live session also saw fellow Bollywood actor Ranveer Singh drop a number of comments wishing Akshay Kumar a belated happy birthday. Ranveer, who starred alongside Akshay in the upcoming action film, Sooryavanshi, went on to compliment his moustache and the hoodie he was wearing. The 2.0 actor stated that he's sporting the moustache for Bell Bottom, which also has Vaani Kapoor and Lara Dutta, while also revealing that his family members were not big fans of his new look. 

During the Live Session, Bear Grylls said that he found Akshay Kumar to be a warm personality who was a "fun guy with no ego" despite not knowing him on a personal level. He also praised the actor for maintaining his fitness and said, "Out of all the guests we have had over the years, he is definitely Tier-1." He also added that he would love to collaborate with the Bollywood actor once again on something else and probably on another show. Check out the Instagram Live session below:
