Kunal Kapoors The Empire faces comparisons with Game Of Thrones 

Kunal Kapoor starrer historical drama 'The Empire' was released a few days ago. While the show is being appreciated for the performance of the cast, some are criticising it for its poor VFX. As it is the case in India with almost every other film/show, 'The Empire' also faced some unfair comparisons. The show based on the life of Mughal Emperor Babur, is being compared to films like 'Padmavat' and 'Jodha Akbar'. On top of that, some people even compared it to the HBO series 'Game Of Thrones'.

Kunal Kapoor shared his view on these comparisons. He said, "I think these are unnecessary comparisons. Comparisons will be made and it is tragic that it is Game Of Thrones because it is a fantastic show. Whenever you do a period drama like that it will be compared to something. Some will say it is like Padmaavat, Bajirao or Game Of Thrones, but it is a different story, it’s a different world, different characters different people. If people are comparing the scale (to GOT) then great, it’s wonderful, but I dont think there is any other commonality between that show and this show."

Talking about the subject of the series, creator Nikhil Advani said, "I don't think I am retelling any story, I am just telling the story that is there in the source material. There will be contrasting views, interpretations, people might say, 'This other book says this.' We are not claiming that we have been factual, we are claiming that we are following the book. The book, for all intentions and purposes, is historical fiction."
