Ever since the first season of Sacred Games premiered on Netflix, the fans have been asking for Season 2. Now that the premiere of Season 2 is hardly a month away, more and more details about the much-awaited series are coming out.
The star cast of the show including Saif Ali Khan, Nawazuddin Siddiqui and Pankaj Tripathi revealed some interesting deets.
In a conversation with Hindustan Times, Saif said, “Sacred Games Season 2 has been a very creative experience with some bright people putting their best foot forward, being as intelligent as they can, being as artistic as they can, and that’s not an environment that you find every day. It pretty much picks up from where the season 1 ends.”
Speaking more about what Season 2 has to offer, Saif said, “While season 1 set the stage, this season develops it further, and deals more with the inner workings of Sartaj’s mind, personality, background, family, and father. It’s a logical progression; there’s a little more action, there’s a little more speed and drama, and it’s also when the whole sacred angle comes in.”
Nawazuddin Siddiqui also spilled some beans about the show and said, “In the first season, the challenge was dealing with the situations that I faced as an actor, because I wasn’t aware of what my journey would be like in the second season. The situations my character faces in both seasons are different, so we had to keep adapting accordingly. Of course, we try to put our best foot forward always. In this season, the way Ganesh Gaitonde talks and walks will remain the same, but the change in his surroundings will bring about an internal change in him.”
Pankaj Tripathi had a small role in season 1 but it’s being said that he will lead in season 2. Talking about his character Guruji, Pankaj said, “Guruji is a well-read man, he has his own style of thinking, and much like many others, he too feels that his beliefs and thoughts are superior to others, and that his approach to life is the correct one.”
Sacred Games Season 2 premieres on Netflix on Aug 15 2019. Apart from these three stars, the show also stars Jatin Sarna, Ranvir Shorey & Kalki Koechlin. Anurag Kashyap & Neeraj Ghaywan have directed it.
Meanwhile, Netflix on Twitter is surely leaving no stone unturned to tease the fans. The official Twitter handle of Netflix India tweeted recently, “25 din mein kya hoga?
– Sacred Games 2 aayega
– Apun ek din mein dekhega
– Apun Sacred Games 3 maangega”
