A Lannister always pays his debts and this is true for the case of Peter Dinklage’s Tyrion Lannister, who is hated by his own family but is loved by the ‘Games of Thrones’ fans.
Among Lannister’s many monikers are ‘Dwarf’, ‘Imp’ and ‘Monster’. He is well known to be enamored with bottle and ladies. People admire him because of his wisdom which we observe in every episode. This is the reason why rumors are suggesting that Shahrukh’s dwarf character in the upcoming movie of Aanand L Rai is based on Tyrion.
From an unnamed source, we get to know that, “The source of Shah Rukh’s character is definitely on the lines of Tyrion Lannister, who is happy and always celebrating his life. Shah Rukh will play a happy dwarf, who brings families together.”
Well, we cannot precisely say that Lannister is happy and his ideas and ways to celebrate life is more about drowning his sorrows away rather than merry-making. And talking about the part of bringing the families together is not true either, as he had murdered his own father and then joined the forces of Daenerys Targaryen and Lord Varys. He realized that his own family will bear hostility and ill-will for him.
However, we can find one thing in common between these two characters. As, the sources added that SRK will make up for his lack of height on-screen with the tall deeds, as this is the most characterizing attribute for the Tyrion Lannister. Also, Tyrion has sharp politics and diplomatic mind.
As we find, a few number of dwarf characters in Bollywood, so comparison will be made for sure. Initially, it was speculated that Shahrukh’s character is based on Kamal Haasan’s from Appu Raja.
Let’s talk further, SRK’s character will be three feet tall and to make the dwarf characters look real, a VFX is being used. The movie will have the diversely abled rather than with sympathy, as uncovered by the star. This is the reason why SRK and Lai don’t want people to observe it as a dwarf movie.
