There is no doubt that Game of Thrones is one of the best television shows ever made and the records of its viewership are the proof! GoT has fans all over the world and they are desperately waiting for its 8th season, which is believed to release next year. Meanwhile, the fans are enjoying re-watching the previous seasons!
But there is a news (good or bad, we can’t decide) for GoT’s fans in India. According to media reports, Ekta Kapoor is planning to make a desi version of the show. As rumors have it, the show with the feel and look of medieval drama is expected to be released soon by ALTBalaji.
Though not an official remake, the show will be heavily inspired by GoT and will have a heavy dose of sex in it, as per a report by Tellychakkar. Buzz has it that the show will have a number of intimate scenes.
If things turn around as planned, it could even be released this month only. However, according to a report by The Asian Age, a source close to production house has denied the rumors and said that Ekta is presently busy promoting her film ‘Veere Di Wedding’. The report mentions:
Ekta is experimenting with different subjects, but there is no Indian version of Game of Thrones. She will now be making a web series with Mouni Roy, titled ‘Mehrunissa’.
Meanwhile, Twitter does not know whether to believe the gossip of getting to watch a desi avatar of GoT, and has started speculations about all the aspects of the rumored show. The news has left Twitter confused as to whether they should laugh at it or cry thinking about how the show would turn out to be! Check out some of the funniest Twitter reactions on GoT’s rumored desi version:

haha. I can tell the story of Ekta Kapoor version of GOT. When dragon died in the fight, Ekta Kapoor will start showing how the dragon was born with sad background music. This part will run for a week of 5 episodes. I forgot her fav background music.

This is the funniest thing I’ve read this morning. Imagine Daenerys saying Dracarys three times.
