It has been almost a month since Game of Thrones aired its final episode but it seems fans are still gripped by the show's fever. Recently, a social media user pointed out a scene in the Indian TV show Aladdin - Naam Toh Suna Hoga, which resembled a sequence in David Benioff and D.B. Weiss' international show Game of Thrones.
The third episode of the finale season of GoT saw Arya Stark coming out of the darkness and killing the Night King with the dagger. One user on the website Reddit shared a video from an episode of Aladdin - Naam Toh Suna Hoga, and drew a parallel. In the video, a skeleton is jumping at the lead actor and trying to attack him but the hero saves himself by grabbing the skeleton by its bones and stabbing it with a weapon. It is reminiscent of the killing scene of the Night King in Game of Thrones.
The video, which is now doing the rounds on the Internet, has left netizens in splits, with many saying that Indian makers have copied a scene from the "Game of Thrones", while a section of social media users felt that the scene from Aladdin - Naam Toh Suna Hoga may have inspired the makers of the international show.
According to one Redditor, the Aladdin episode in which the scene takes place was aired on June 13. The Arya-Night King scene took place in the third episode of the eighth season, titled The Long Night. The GoT episode aired on April 28. The Aladdin episode can be seen on SonyLiv app, but the scene in question has been removed from the online version. The sequence still exists, at around the 7:30 minute mark. A trailer for the episode can be seen here, which provides more details.
