A report has surfaced claiming Sony Entertainment TV is remaking the hit fantasy series Game Of Thrones for Indian television. The report comes from Pakastani news outlet Ary News . According to the site, Sony's series will be titled Rani Mahal, and will reportedly be "inspired by" George R.R. Martin's Game of Thrones.
But according to Dramatize, Rani Mahal will be set in India in 1857 which is the same year as the Indian Rebellion of 1857, which could suggest there won't be fantasy elements involved.
However, there will be characters based on Daenerys Targaryen, Jon Snow and Cersei Lannister, so while there may or may not be dragons, there will probably be plenty of drama.
The Indian series has already found its Daenerys, Jon Snow, and Cersei Lannister. Daenerys will be played by Sakshi Tanwar, while Parth Samthaan and Anita Hassanandani will play Jon Snow and Cersei Lannister.
