Neil Nitin Mukesh to star in Game Of Thrones! Believe it
One can safely assume that Prem Ratan Dhan Payo was a re-launch for the acting career of Neil Nitin Mukesh, thanks to Salman Khan's presence in the film. The actor, who made a debut in Bollywood with the successful Johnny Gaddar lost the plot post that. However, even Salman wouldn't have imagined the extent of push that that Neil Nitin got thanks to PRDP, even before it has released.
The actor has bagged a role with arguably the most popular TV show of all times, Game of Thrones.
Whoa. That's right.
Hollywood action director, Greg Powell who has designed the action sequences in Prem Ratan Dhan Payo is also the action director of Game Of Thrones. In the film, Salman and Neil will be seen sword fighting for which both the actors underwent a month long training under the guidance of Powell.
According to Neil, his role in the show will be quite similar to the one in PRDP. "I play a royal in both and also feature in combat scenes," he says. The actor is also all praise for Greg, "He is extremely humble and professional. I feel honoured that I got to work with him," he says, adding that the Khaleesi, Jon Snow and the Imp are his favourite characters from the show.
Apart from its graphic violence, GoT is known for its nudity and sex. Is Neil comfortable with it? "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 concludes.
Let's wait and watch as Bollywood's Prince is set to conquer the Iron Throne.
