'Winter is coming' to Delhi in every sense of the word. Vladimir Furdik, who plays the menacing Night King in "Game of Thrones", is all set to be part of the eighth edition of the annual Comic-Con here.
Scheduled to be held from December 7-9 at the NSIC Grounds in Okhla, the pop-culture event promises to bring to fans the best from the worlds of comics, movies, television, and gaming.
"I am super excited to welcome Vladimir Furdik to Delhi! 'Game of Thrones' is extremely popular in India and to have the Night King himself give us a visit, is a treat for thousands of fans like me in the city!" Jatin Varma, Founder, Comic Con India, said.
