Winter is coming. And, guess what's coming with winter? No, we are not talking about Jon Snow.

Bollywood actor Neil Nitin Mukesh may become the first Indian actor to bag a role in the popular television show Game Of Thrones.

According to a Mumbai Mirror report, the TV show’s stunt director Greg Powell, who also directed two sword-fighting sequences in the actor’s forthcoming release Prem Ratan Dhan Payo, has offered him the role. Powell has earlier worked on projects such as Avengers: Age of Ultron, Fast and Furious 6 and Harry Potter.

The actor himself is unwilling to confirm anything yet, and has told DNA, "All I can do is keep my fingers crossed."

So, will it be a blink-and-miss role like that of Amitabh Bacchan in The Great Gatsby?

Well, Twitter is trying to figure what role he would suit best in:

The actor told Mumbai Mirror that he plays a royal in the show and also features in combat scenes.

In fact, the stunt director spotted the actor when he was shooting a sword-fighting sequence for Prem Ratan Dhan Payo and was quite impressed. "He seemed pretty impressed with all the hard work I put in," Mukesh told the newspaper.

Oh, and guess what? You may just spot a naked Neil Nitin in the show too. "I am okay with it if it's required for my character. I am not intimidated by it as an actor," he said.
