Television actress Sakshi Tanwar will reportedly shed her ideal bahu (daughter-in-law) image to play the role of a princess in the Indian version of HBO's globally popular fantasy series "Game of Thrones" (GoT).

According to reports, Sakshi will essay the role of Daenerys Targaryen in the Indian version of the show, which is titled "Rani Mahal".

"Rani Mahal" will be a period drama and it will feature Sakshi as Daenerys Targaryen, Mother of Dragons, "Yeh Hai Mohabbatein" actress Anita Hassanandani as Cersei Lannister, while "Kaisi Yeh Yaariaa" actor Parth Samthaan will play the famous Jon Snow, bastard son of Lord Eddard Stark of Winterfell, according to Indian Express.

There have been several Bollywood movies and television shows inspired from Hollywood, which is why Indian version of "Game of Thrones" doesn't come as a surprise.

But there are several "GoT" fans who strongly reacted to reports and made fun of Sakshi as well the show "Rani Mahal".
