Directors Anurag Kashyap and Vikramaditya Motwane ready to launch a web series ‘Sacred Games’ for Netflix soon.
The first look of series out.
Based on Vikram Chandra’s novel by the same name, the series sees Saif Ali Khan as Sartaj Singh, a cynical cop, in hot pursuit of criminal overlord Nawazuddin Siddiqui as Ganesh Gaitonde.
The series also starring Radhika Apte.
India’s first homegrown Netflix original shows how the paths of a cop, a gangster, a film star and politicians entwine in the chaos that is Mumbai.
The author has spoken earlier, “Over the last few years, I’ve watched with great excitement and pleasure as Netflix has transformed narrative television with its groundbreaking, genre-bending shows.”
“I’m confident that all the colour and vitality and music of the fictional world I’ve lived with for so long will come fully alive on the large-scale canvas provided by Netflix. I’m thrilled to be working with Netflix and Phantom Films,” he added.
Nawazuddin and Radhika have earlier acted together in ‘Manjhi’ and ‘Badlapur’, but this is the first time either of them is working with Saif Ali Khan.–CINEWS
