Bollywood actor Neil Nitin Mukesh has been offered a role in Hollywood show "Game of Thrones" (GoT), which is popular for its brutal scenes and nudity.
Neil, who will be next seen in Salman Khan starrer "Prem Ratan Dhan Payo", revealed that Hollywood action director Greg Powell was very impressed with his action stunts in the film and offered him a role in "Game of Thrones" season 6. Powell is the action director for "Prem Ratan Dhan Payo".
Talking to Mumbai Mirror, Neil further informed that his character in the international show will be similar to the role he has played in "Prem Ratan Dhan Payo" – that is of a royal prince with a lot of action sequences.
Although Neil and his fans are excited about the actor's role in "Game of Thrones", others have made him trend on Twitter with a series of jokes on him and his probable character in the show.
While Neil said that his favourite characters from "Game of Thrones" are Khaleesi, Jon Snow and the Imp, Twitterati have been fantasising the "Prem Ratan Dhan Payo" actor in the role of White Walkers and his death in the show.
As soon as the news of Neil being a part of the upcoming season of "GoT" went viral, the actor has been vehemently trolled on Twitter, with jokes ranging from his character in the show to the number of times he will die in "GoT".
