Best known as Mikesh of the web series Permanent Roommates, actor Sumeet Vyas will soon host a show, Stupid Man Smart Phone, on a digital platform. Adapted from a British series, the show will see him trekking up a mountain and roaming in a forest.
Accompanied by a different travel partner every week, his only means of survival will be a smart phone. They will be dropped into terrains like dense forests at the Tamil Nadu, Desert in Rajasthan — armed only with internet access, a battery pack and some basic supplies for the first leg of this expedition. The duo will have to rely on the help received from their social media following or survival tips to get them out of tough situations that they encounter on these trails.
On the second leg of Stupid Man Smart Phone with Sumeet Vyas is India’s popular comedian and founder of Being Indian – Sahil Khattar. Shared below are hi-res images of the duo, during the back-breaking task in Rajasthan.
They did some crazy things while on set!
– Sumeet and Sahil had to travel with a camel as part of their task. It was their constant companion on the show and they named it humpty
– Sumeet and Sahil had to spend a night in an isolated village in the middle of the desert where they had to make fire using whatever bare essentials they could find and also ensure that they kept themselves safe since the village was rumoured to be haunted
– As part of their breakfast & dinner – Sumeet and sahil had camel’a milk straight from the udders and in the night Sahil peeled and cooked a cactus which he ate as well
