New Delhi, Aug 21 : Ahead of the most-awaited premiere of the HBO series, ‘House of the Dragon’ on Disney+ Hotstar, there are many waiting with bated breath, but there are also emerging fans in Bollywood.
Star BFFs Sara Ali Khan and Janhvi Kapoor, who were recently seen sharing the couch on the popular talk show ‘Koffee With Karan’, shared their excitement to watch the eagerly-awaited series.
In a video posted on their social media, both the actors were seen discussing the series. When Janhvi, a ‘Game of Thrones’ fan, went quizzing Sara about the show, Sara replied ‘House of the Dragon’ is a new and different show and watching ‘Game of Thrones’ is not mandatory.
Sara said she is excited to enter the universe of dragons, raining fire and fury in the series.
“I am really looking forward to House of the Dragon; it is definitely on my bucket list to watch! There’s a lot of buzz around it, and I am totally excited and turns out, one doesn’t need to watch GOT before HOTD,” said Sara.
“George RR Martin is a genius, and seeing his vision come to life will be a treat. I am already fascinated by all the dragons in this period drama, and I have the perfect partner to watch it with! After going on treks together, sharing the Koffee couch, I am now all set to watch the turbulent battle of the Iron throne with Janhvi exclusively on Disney+ Hotstar on August 22,” added Sara.
‘Game of Thrones’ fan Janhvi said she is thrilled to watch the series with Sara.
“I have been a Game of Thrones fan since the beginning and eagerly waiting for House of the Dragon. With the Targaryens at the height of their power with all their dragons, it’ll surely be an interesting watch. I don’t know if Winter is coming but I do know that Sara is in for a crazy ride. I am excited to watch this battle of fire and blood with her on Disney+ Hotstar and that too at the same time as the US telecast so no spoilers either,” said Janhvi.
Based on George R.R. Martin’s book Fire and Blood, the 10-episode series is the remarkable, turbulent story of the House of Targaryen, set 200 years before the events that captivated global audiences in Game of Thrones. The series is a gripping saga that takes us deep into the extraordinary world of Westeros and explores the Targaryen family – the all-powerful dragon riders who are the seemingly invincible rulers of the seven kingdoms.
Even though the series is a prequel to ‘Game of Thrones’, ‘House of the Dragon’ has an individual storyline with new characters played by an impressive cast, including Emma D’Arcy, Matt Smith, Paddy Considine, Olivia Cooke, Rhys Ifans, Steve Toussaint, Eve Best, Fabien Frankel, and Sonoya Mizuno.
The eagerly-waited series has been directed by Miguel Sapochnik, Clare Kilner, Geeta Vasant Patel and Greg Yaitanes, with George R. R. Martin, Ryan Condal, and Miguel Sapochnik along with Sara Hess, Vince Gerardis and Ron Schmidt, helming as executive producers.
