Game Of Thrones, a hugely popular fantasy show inspired by novelist George RR Martin’s bestselling series, has become a phenomena across the globe due to its gripping plot. In the series various kingdoms are vying for Iron Throne and the show narrates to what extent they go to be ahead of each other. The HBO series won key Emmy Awards this year.

Meanwhile, Bahl, who recently faced a failure with Shaandaar, also confessed that he restricted Kashyap’s creative vision in Bombay Velvet. “I failed as a producer in Bombay Velvet. It would have been Anurag’s wildest film if I had not told him to refrain from going that way. I will never do that again,” he said. Set in the 1960s, Bombay Velvet was a big screen adaptation of Gyan Prakash’s Mumbai Fables. The story is about a man with big dreams and the extent he is willing to go to be successful. It marked Karan Johar’s big acting debut with a villainous role.
