The fan film also shows character inspired by the series and has netizens left pleasantly surprised by the beauty of Kashmir. One even wrote, "What have you done? Is it for real? Oh my god! You raised the bars so high. You could do all that which actual GoT did with all the VFX and effects. 
Loved the music. Loved the costumes. Kashmiri Tyrion Lannister looks so much like actual Tyrion Lannister. 
Whitewalkers scene was crafted to perfection. The Night king’s make up was so on point. Overall 10/10."  Press play and get mesmerised:
