Neil Nitin Mukesh, who stars in Sooraj Barjatya’s next, claims that he has been offered a role in American TV series ‘Game of Thrones’.
Neil Nitin Mukesh is already reaping the benefits of working in the Salman Khan starrer Diwali release Prem Ratan Dhan Payo.
Mirror has learnt that the film’s action director Greg Powell, who’s worked on high profile Hollywood projects like Avengers: Age of Ultron, Fast and Furious 6 and the Harry Potter series, and is currently the stunt director of Game of Thrones, has offered Neil a role in the hit show.
“Greg has directed two sword-fighting sequences in PRDP for which I had to train for over a month in order to get the stance and wrist movements right. He seemed pretty impressed with all the hard work I put in and made the offer when we were shooting for the climax scene a few months ago,” Neil, who is a huge GoT fan, says excitedly, adding that someone from the show’s production team is expected to come down by the month-end for further discussions.
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.
