Nothing confirmed yet: Neil Nitin Mukesh on ‘Game of Thrones’ casting!


Neil Nitin Mukesh might be playing a nemesis to Salman Khan in Prem Ratan Dhan Payo which releases this Diwali. But about a week before the film’s release, Neil has grabbed headlines for bagging a coveted role in the much anticipated and popular TV series Game Of Thrones.

While a leading tabloid reported that Neil is on board for the TV series already, when we contacted Neil, he had a different story to tell. “Nothing is confirmed so far. All I can do is keep my fingers crossed. ThoughGame Of Thrones is one of my favourite series.”

How did the offer come about? All thanks to Sooraj Barjatya’s PRDP. Neil explains, “During the action sequence of Prem Ratan Dhan Payo, global stunt director Greg Powell mentioned that I would be an ideal candidate for the Game Of Thrones series. It just started off as a random conversation on sets and now my global agency is figuring things out.”

If all goes well, Neil will indeed be yet another Indian celebrity joining the others on the global arena and after Anil Kapoor and Priyanka Chopra, it’s time for Neil to spell magic in the international sphere as well. All the best, Neil!
