Mukesh says he nabbed the role through Game Of Thrones’ stunt director Greg Powell. Powell, who has also worked on films like Avengers: Age of Ultron, Fast And Furious 6 and the Harry Potter series, was the action director on Mukesh’s recent film Prem Ratan Dhan Payo.

“Greg has directed two sword-fighting sequences inPrem Ratan Dhan Payo 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 [Game Of Thrones] offer when we were shooting for the climax scene a few months ago.”

Mukesh, who admits to being a Game of Thrones fan, says he’ll be playing a character similar to his character from Prem Ratan Dhan Payo, in that both characters are royal and both roles involve a lot of combat.

HBO has not yet confirmed Mukesh’s casting.
