Based on the Vikram Chandra’s Novel, “Sacred Games”, it is the first Netflix Original series in India. Produced by Anurag Kashyap and Vikramaditya Motwane, the series stars Saif Ali Khan, Nawazuddin Siddique, and Radhika Apte in main roles. With the series consisting big film stars, Netflix really went all-in with the series. The initial developments took place in 2014 when Vikramaditya Motwane met the team of Netflix in Los Angeles. With no restriction of time which is there when making a film, the directors, writers, and actors were able to explore more.

An experiment, the response to the show certainly left many taken aback. Now the wait is on for “Sacred Games 2”. Releasing on 15 Aug 2019, all eyes are set on the series. It is always difficult to eclipse the first part of the series, but with Sacred Games 2 having great directors, writers and actors, it is expected not only to be bigger than Sacred Games but also better. The craze and buzz generated by Sacred Games 2 among the audience are huge. Various fan pages and fan clubs have been formed with sacred games 2 being the only topic of discussion.
