Ajay Devgn recalls his journey as an action hero and more talking to Bear Grylls
Ajay said “Yeah, I did a lot of stunts because when we started doing stunts in movies there weren’t any straps. So we had to jump from 30 or 40 feet. You had to land on boxes and most of the time you broke our ankles or one way or another. No fall mats if you hit the ground earlier. So we used to do the real things. “
Ajay Devgn talks about losing his father
Ajay talks about his father “It’s hard to lose your parents. Because for the first 20 years of your life you don’t care about them. They think they’re stupid. They know nothing. You know everything. And when you have children, you realize what parents actually are or what they must have done. And sometimes it gets too late. ” He added “He suffered from Alzheimer’s disease and many injuries from the stunts. When he was young, he had to go through glass once and he had 45 stitches on the head because broken glass at that time was real broken glass. “

Then we stuff it with palm fronds and twigs. So … it’s like a funnel that the fish can go in, but then it kind of gets stuck in it. So as long as there’s a whole bunch of leaves and ferns in there, we can’t get a fish in, then they won’t come out. So you want it to be easy for them to go in and hard for them to get out of. It’s almost like a funnel. so that it goes there in the middle. ” So that they don’t starve to death, put a few crabs in the container as bait. Ajay was said to be amazed at this technique “I think maine kabhi socha bhi nahi tha ki main aisa kuch karunga life my survival ke bhi kaafi cheezein seekhain ki agar aap kahin fas jaate ho yah na bhi phaste ho toh kisi bhi cheez ko uthakar kaise use kiya ja sakta hai. I think I am very, very happy to be here. “
