Netflix show Sacred Games 2 is premiering in two weeks, on 15th August 2019. Based on a book by Vikram Chandra with the same name, season 2 of the series has been directed by Neeraj Ghaywan and Anurag Kashyap, and stars Saif Ali Khan and Nawazuddin Siddiqui in the lead roles. Nawazuddin plays the role of a legendary crime lord, Ganesh Gaitonde in Sacred Games.
Saif, who plays an honest cop Sartaj Singh on the show, recently spoke to a news website about the time when his Dil Chahta Hai co-star Aamir Khan texted him regarding season 2 of the show. While answering a question about a memorable reaction he got from the film industry, Saif said, “You know Aamir Khan sent me a text and he is someone whose opinion I respect and whose mind I admire when it comes to movies, and he said I want to talk to you so you know I called him back and he said, listen who’s this Trivedi guy, is he dead, what happened and he had all these questions which I couldn’t answer.” He added that actor Varun Dhawan and many other people also rang him up with praises for the show.
“But even more important was the fact that we were representing our country on a global level and the kind of reviewers that write about it don’t normally review the films we do. They were testing and watching us whether we can hold on our own on that platform and I think we did and that is a huge achievement for the technical team and everyone behind the camera as well as all the actors, who’ve done such a phenomenal job,” he added. The trailer of Sacred Games 2 was released in early July and Netflix India has been updating photos on Instagram of the main characters, who have adopted a 70s gangsta look for season 2.
