India Is Remaking ‘Game Of Thrones,’ Minus The Dragons

There are eight different adaptations of The Office, including the original, the U.S. remake, and my personal favorite, the French-Canadian version, La Job (“Oh no, Jim put the stapler in the poutine again!”). There’s something endlessly relatable about being stuck in a middling job, just as we all know what it’s like to kill a family member with a crossbow while they’re pooping, so it’s no wonder that India is creating its own version of Game of Thrones called Rani Mahal.

The series will star Sakshi Tanwar as the Daenerys character, while Anita Hassanandani and Parth Samthaan drink wine and scowl as Cersei and Jon Snow, respectively. The Independent notes that although the series will take its lead from George R.R. Martin’s series, “it will be set in the year of the Indian Mutiny of 1857, so [it’s] unlikely to feature dragons.”

Where are my dragons? Not in India, apparently.
