Neil Nitin Mukesh may soon join the likes of ac­tors Ir­rfan, Priyanka Cho­pra and Nim­rat Kaur as he is in talks to star in the pop­u­lar Amer­i­can pe­riod drama se­ries — Game Of Thrones.

Neil told us that Greg Pow­ell, who is the stunt di­rec­tor for his up­com­ing movie along­side Sal­man Khan and Sonam Kapoor, of­fered him a role in the TV se­ries. How­ever, while re­ports are do­ing the rounds that the ac­tor has al­ready been cast in the show, the 33-year-old clar­i­fied that he is yet to talk to the team be­hind the Emmy Award- win­ning show.

“My ac­tion di­rec­tor Greg Pow­ell, also hap­pens to be the stunt di­rec­tor for Game of Thrones. Af­ter shoot­ing a few ac­tion se­quences, he asked me if I would be in­ter­ested in work­ing in Game of Thrones. I’d be stupid to say no to that,” he says adding, “But there’s no con­fir­ma­tion on any of that as of now. We are yet to talk to the peo­ple who are in­volved with Game of Thrones and I re­ally can’t say more than that right now.”

Ask how ex­cited he is about the of­fer, he says, “I am hop­ing that this ac­tu­ally ma­te­ri­alises and I do get the role, but I won’t lose any sleep over it either.”
