According to Mumbai Mirror, Neil Nitin Mukesh — who is currently working in the Salman Khan-starrer Prem Ratan Dhan Payo – will soon appear in HBO’s blockbuster TV series Game of Thrones.
Apparently Prem Ratan Dhan Payo‘s (PRDP) action director, Greg Powell, is the current stunt director of Game of Thrones. And Greg has offered Neil a role on the hit TV series. The stunt director, who has worked on high profile Hollywood projects like Avengers: Age of Ultron, Fast and Furious 6 and the Harry Potter series, seems to have been floored by the actor’s technique and training.
“Greg has directed two sword-fighting sequences in PRDP for which I had to train for over a month in order to get the stance and wrist movements right. He seemed pretty impressed with all the hard work I put in and made the offer when we were shooting for the climax scene a few months ago,” revealed the actor.
Neil has also claimed that a member of the GoT production team will be making their way to India soon to take the conversation further.
The Bollywood actor, whose favourite characters from the show are Daenerys “Khaleesi” Targaryen, Jon Snow and Tyrion “The Imp” Lannister, has no qualms about giving into the nudity and adult scenes that the show has become famous for.
“I have gone nude for Jail, so why not for this? I am okay with it if it’s required for my character. I am not intimidated by it as an actor,” he added.
Will the sixth season of the popular TV show feature Neil?
