'Sacred Games' casting director says Season 2 will be mindblowing
Sacred Games on Netflix made quite the buzz when Season 1 showed the story of the feared gangster Ganesh Gaitonde played by Nawazuddin Siddiqui and the honest cop Sartaj Singh, played by Saif Ali Khan. While fans eagerly await the arrival of the second season, the casting director, Shivam Gupta, has said that Siddiqui and Saif would blow away the audience's minds. Read on.
Gupta spoke of Season 2, saying, "Saif Ali Khan and Nawazuddin Siddiqui will blow your mind away in the second season of the web-series. You cannot even imagine how big it would be". Without revealing new actors' names, he said, "If you were amazed by the actors in the first season, the second one will have talents that have never been seen on screen".
Season 2 which is being shot in Cape Town and Johannesburg has been hyped by Nawazuddin as well. He said Season 2 "should arrive between June and August. You will forget the first season after watching the second season".
To jog fans' memory, Season 1 saw Gaitonde kill himself as the rest of the story was told in the form of a flashback. Season 2 will seek to further explore Gaitonde's story and violent rise to power, while featuring Pankaj Tripathi's character, Guruji, in a much more pivotal role. The relationship between Gaitonde and Guruji will drive the story in Season 2.
While Anurag Kashyap and Vikramaditya Motwane were the co-directors of Season 1 of Sacred Games, Motwane will be replaced by Neeraj Ghaywan, who is stepping into the shoes of the director, for the upcoming second season of the show.
