Social media users went into peals of laughter when Bollywood actor Neil Nitin Mukesh said he was approached for Game of Thrones (GoT), but his recent statement has come as a shock to many. The Prem Ratan Dhan Payo actor, in an interview, revealed that his mother wants to date him in her next birth.

Neil made the startling revelation while talking about love in an interview. The actor told the Press Trust of India that he is probably the most romantic person in the world and added that his mother loves him for being extremely expressive and thus wants to be his girlfriend in her next birth.

"I am the most romantic person probably in the world. I enjoy doing grey characters because in personal life I am totally opposite. My mom once told me that she wants to be born as my girlfriend in the next birth because she sees me how I am, I am extremely expressive and she loves me for that.Without love, I feel lost," Neil said in a statement, according to the Press Trust of India.

While this piece of information might have shocked several, this is not the first time a celebrity has made such a startling revelation. Bollywood filmmaker Mahesh Bhatt and daughter Pooja Bhatt's photo shoot for a magazine's cover stirred controversy. Mahesh and Pooja locked lips for the magazine's cover shoot in the 80s, but that is not all. The director went on to add that, "If Pooja wasn't my daughter, I'd love to marry her."

Meanwhile, Neil's recent revelation gave social media users a new reason to troll him. Here is how social media users reacted to the news:
