Also, the makers are being careful as to not rake in any controversy.
To recall, the first season faced ire for allegedly insulting ex-Indian PM Rajiv Gandhi in one scene.
However, this time the approach is different, Saif says.
We don't want the show to not run: Saif
"We don't want to get banned. We don't want the show to not run. We are not really interested in controversy. Our content is good. We would like more people to come and watch rather than create some kind of sensation," the actor said.
"Season one was quite basic compared to this"
"Even though my track doesn't have much sex and bad language. Sadly. It (referring to political stuff) does have a bit but we were careful," the Bazaar actor asserted.
Talking more about Season 2, the 48-year-old said that it's more twisted than the former one.
"It goes back to the past and future and everything ties up. Season one's quite basic compared to this."
Sartaj to have a leaner look in 'Sacred Games 2'
"Season two is where we change gears. In season one you know about them, but in season two you're up to it," he emphasized.
For this season, Saif will be reprising the role of cop Sartaj Singh, who is "wonderfully human but imperfect and flawed."
He also revealed that his character this time will be leaner, just like it is in the book.
"Sartaj is wonderfully human but a big mess, very under-confident"
"He is still very imperfect, flawed character and has got addictive nature to alcohol, drugs and pills. He is very under-confident in many ways. He is wonderfully human but a big mess," Saif said while elaborating about his character.
"He has a lost a lot of blood, he's not eating much, he is running around a lot and he is not happy," he added.
