Los Angeles, Feb 24 (THAINDIAN NEWS) Aron Ralston was on “Minute to Win it” on Wednesday night.

The mountain climber failed to complete a task but he got the kind of encouragement that he needs from a special person. James Franco played Ralston in the movie ‘127 Hours’ which portrays the horrifying mountain accident that Ralston had.

The host of the show, Guy Fieri, told Ralston that he has a special video for him. After that he played Franco’s video to Ralston. Franco told Ralston in the video that, “Keep your wits about you because you’re going to kill it.”

The video seemed to have done the trick of encouraging Ralston. He said after the video has been played that he was happy about the way that Franco portrayed him in the movie about his life.

He said that, “The way he portrayed me, I felt very honored by that.”

Ralston faced certain death when he got trapped in a crevice while out in the mountains. However he took a decision that proved to be the reason why he is still alive today – he amputated his own arms.

The ordeal has been made into a movie. Franco plays Ralston in the movie.
