Does this mean Salman Khan watches Game of Thrones?

It would appear that a man who looks a lot like Game of Thrones actor Peter Dinklage is a part of Salman Khan’s upcoming film, Bharat. Designer Ashley Rebello shared a picture from the film’s set, in which he is posing with the Hollywood actor’s lookalike.

“Just see who I am with, on the sets of Bharat,” wrote Rebello, who has worked on Salman Khan films such as Tubelight, Tiger Zinda Hai and Bajrangi Bhaijaan. “The game is on,” he continued, perhaps making a reference to Game of Thrones.

The man in the picture, presumably a performer, has the same messy hair and scraggly beard that Dinklage’s character, Tyrion Lannister wears in the hit HBO fantasy show. He even seems to be wearing a medieval-inspired costume.

Bharat is Salman’s follow-up to the underperforming Race 3, which got him some of the worst critical reaction of his career. The film also couldn’t match the business of some of his biggest hits.

For Bharat, Salman will reunite with director Ali Abbas Zafar, who directed Salman in Sultan and Tiger Zinda Hai. The film will also mark the Bollywood comeback of Priyanka Chopra, who returns to Hindi cinema after a gap of three years. Bharat also stars Disha Patani and recently added Nora Fatehi in a supporting role.

A report said that the film will be set in a circus, with Salman playing a stunt motorcyclist and co-star Disha Patani playing a trapeze artiste. “The idea is to create an Indian-Russian circus like Raj Kapoor’s Mera Naam Joker. Performers from all over the world are flying down for the circus tricks which will be a mix of trapeze hoops and rope stunts. This is Salman and Disha’s introduction. He plays a daredevil stunt motorcyclist in the circus while she is a trapeze artiste,” Zafar told Mumbai Mirror.

The film will cover a span of 60 years from India in the 1960s to present day and will features Salman Khan sporting five different looks in these 60 years, wherein a crucial part will showcase the actor in his late 20s, looking much leaner and younger.
