Mumbai: Suniel Shetty has turned the brand ambassador for first time an unique sport in Mumbai called ‘Mud Skull Adventure’. This unique activity at the scenic locales of Karjat is attracting the youth. The lanes dug in the slushy mud near the Sitayi Restaurant amidst the mountain cutting was a sight to witness. Suniel came up to the media driving rashly but the wheels was under his control……Ask him what’s his feelings all about? He says, “Indeed I was not prepared for this “Mud skull adventure”….this interesting event at all. But no sooner did I reach here…. Subodh who is also involved in this adventure just pushed me in. I jumped into the driving into the mud skull adventure and literally felt like a child. This vehicle is insane but you need keep it under yor control to be bale to enjoy the thrill of this game.This sport is phenomenal. No wonders with this specially equipped jeep having installed entirely with all the safety measures…. Though I was not dressed for the occasion yet after jumping into it I felt great. Next time I will come properly attired ….with shorts and a Bundy …not that I wish to showcase my boy but would like to enjoy the process of this adventure to the fullest.”

About children and youth a must involvement into any kid of sport Suniel [Anna] explains, “In today’s mobile and computer driven activities of children who wish to get instant gratification …also are getting used to fast food etc. They should come out in open and enjoy the atmosphere of outdoor games like playing football, Cricket Hockey and this mud skull adventure as well. This will enable the children to be able to socialize well…Playing out door games will not only keep them fit but along with deriving happiness they will never feel socially awkward.”

During his childhood days Anna kept away from vehicles be it bikes, trucks etc. “Yes! Since my son was growing as you know  during childhood days parents always wish their kids to be away from bike etc as they may drive irresponsible at times. I kept a distance from bike riding especially. However, for my action scenes in films I have driven double Decker bus, trucks …as I feel children,”Bachche hume dekh kar seekhte hai …sun kar nahi!! We need to mould them accordingly they are a part of us. Parents should encourage their children to experience various games as they can enjoy the weather and the outdoor thrills as well. This will keep them away much from today’s computer driven World then,” the ‘Hera Pheri’ actor says.

According to Anna Aka Sunil these Bollywood stars can enjoy this mud skull adventure, “Sanjay Dutt, Salman Khan and Ajay Devgn are the ones who may enjoy this game as they have always liked outdoor stuff. Salman comes to Karjat often so he may also love to enjoy this thrilling Sport. I feel all Bollywood action heroes would love to try their hand.”

Lastly, about his son Ahan Shetty who is also preparing to venture into the big screen the latest advice after watching Sanjay Dutt’s biopic ‘Sanju’ this is what Sunil told his son Ahan. “No sooner did we come out of the theatres watching ‘Sanju’, I told Ahan this is the kind of competition you will have to face….A healthy competition indeed. Look at both Ranbir Kapoor and Vicky Kaushal! Both have performed exuberantly and extraordinarily well. Ranbir and Vicky are the finest actors of B’town,” he concludes.
