Now that mythological epics Ramayan and Mahabharat are back on TV during the coronavirus lockdown, Indian spinner Ravichandran wants reruns of popular HBO series Game of Thrones as well.

Prithi Ashwin, the wife of the cricketer, had posted on Twitter, “Want to put petition to channels to play movies that I like. Want comedy/ masala movies in the 930 am slot with long ad breaks (because need to cooooook) and nicer/ feel good movies for the 3pm slot with no breaks. How?"

Replying to the tweet, Ravichandran Ashwin wrote, “How about a rerun of Game of Thrones?”


But it seemed that Prithi was not in agreement with him and soon replied, “Noooo. I want light, fluffy nonsense to watch.”
