The source told the publication, “It’s not a pivotal character to the plotline. The makers didn’t need an A-lister to come for the same. They never discussed it with Kareena at all. There was no point of her doing or not doing it. She was never offered the part only.”

The director has already roped in another beautiful lady who will play Saif Ali Khan’s girlfriend in the film. It is to be noted that she has already worked with Saif in a Web Series. “They were talking to Aditi Rao Hydari too but have eventually locked Kubbra Sait for that role. Although the screen time might not be too much, the role is special. It’s about how his relationship with Kubbra also has a big effect on the dynamics that he shares with Alaia F who plays his beti in the film,”

Actors Not Responsible for Delay in Sacred Games 2: Saif Ali Khan

Posted in Movies with tags , , , , , on June 24, 2019 by saifalikhanonline

As per a report, the release of Sacred Games 2 has been delayed because both Saif Ali Khan and Nawazuddin Siddiqui have been busy with their upcoming projects.

“The protagonists of the show, Saif Ali Khan and Nawazuddin Siddiqui, are busy shooting for their upcoming projects. While Saif Ali in London for his home production Jawani Jaaneman, Nawazuddin has already given his dates to his brother’s directorial venture, Bole Chudiyan”.

However, Saif Ali Khan has refuted the claims. Saif Ali Khan said, “How absurd would it be for Sacred Games to be delayed because we both are doing something else. Of course, both of us are busy. But not at the cost of our commitments.”

On 20 May, Netflix India’s Instagram page hopped onto the Snapchat baby-filter bandwagon and posted a collage featuring baby versions of Kukoo (Kubbra Sait), Anjali Mathur (Radhika Apte), Katekar (Jitendra Joshi) and Bunty (Jatin Sarna). The caption, as usual, was very cryptic. “25 din mein school shuru hone wala hain (School will begin in 25 days)“, wrote Netflix in the caption of the photo. If we were to count, the days, the result would be 14 June.
