Sacred Games led by Nawazuddin Siddiqui and Saif Ali Khan has been the torchbearer of the change of web shows scenario in India. Released back in 2018, the show was received well among the audience as well as critics.
Sacred Games Season 2 did receive some flak from its diehard fan base foe being ‘too serious’. It of course ended on a cliffhanger and there were probable questions of its sequel.
Saif Ali Khan, in a conversation with The New Indian Express, has opened up about his role and the idea of the sequel. He said, “I knew Narcos on Netflix had a global audience and when they came to India and said they wanted to do this, I was sold. I enjoyed playing the Sardar and wearing the turban.”
When asked about Sacred Games Season 3, Saif Ali Khan wasn’t sure about whether or not it’s coming. The silver lining is that he would love to be a part of it if it’s happening and he’s given a chance.
He also talked about what kind of roles excite him, “I would like to do a saga on Mughals, East India Company or some similar topic that is not full of cliches. A new perspective towards Mahabharata or similar seminal work would be exciting too. It’s time we told our version of history as Indians.”
The two-season series, Sacred Games, is based on the book of the same name by Vikram Chandra. While the first season released on July 6, 2018, season two premiered on August 15, 2019.
In the first season, Vikramaditya Motwane was not only a showrunner of the web series but also one of the directors along with Anurag Kashyap.
