Apart from the two, Nawazuddin Siddiqui and Radhika Apte are also a part of the project.

We already know that Saif Ali Khan will soon be seen in Anurag Kashyap‘s upcoming series Sacred Games. Besides Saif, the web series also features Nawazuddin Siddiqui and Radhika Apte. Saif, who is one of the few A-listers in Bollywood, is venturing into the digital space for the first ever time. The actor feels it is easier to present a story on a web platform.

Latest reports suggest that TV actor/ host Karan Wahi has been signed for the web series. While talking to an online portal Karan said, “Can’t talk about what I am playing. But I’m a part of the show.” Speaking of this new collaboration, the actor further told the portal, “Well it’s going be a great experience, I am sure. So I am looking forward to it.”

Set in Mumbai, Sacred Games, which is based on Vikram Chandra’s novel of the same name, speaks about the city’s nexus of organised crime, glamour, politics, and corruption. When the series was announced, the author Vikram Chandra had said, “Over the last few years, I’ve watched with great excitement and pleasure as Netflix has transformed narrative television with its ground-breaking, 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.”

Netflix has signed a deal with Shah Rukh Khan’s company also for streaming his films. They are in talks with other big Bollywood stars also for similar deals, but Saif is the fist of the established actors to go for a web series.

Saif Ali Khan, who is all set to star in Netflix’s upcoming original series Sacred Games, feels that it is easier to present a story on a web platform.

While present at the launch of the web series, when asked about all the censorship game, Saif noted, “The fact that there is lack of censorship and we will be able to tell our stories in truth is very exciting. I don’t like the idea of too many constraints. So this book is so layered and to be able to present that without having going to 500 institutions and seek permission to express yourself freely is good.”

Saif Ali Khan and I will bring out the wicked side of each other: Nawazuddin Siddiqui

With this web show, Anurag [ Kashyap] and I will fulfil all our wishes,” chuckles Nawazuddin Siddiqui, alluding to the platform that’s free from the high- handedness of the Censor Board that the actor and filmmaker encountered during their previous collaboration, Gangs Of Wasseypur. Siddiqui reveals that the director has been roped in to helm the Netflix original adaptation of Sacred Games, based on Vikram Chandra’s bestselling novel by the same name. “ When we make movies, we think about ways to tone down the sexual content. Sacred Games will be uninhibited, because the fear of censorship won’t play on our minds,” he says.

Pointing out that at film festivals, Kashyap is often pulled up by media and critics for limiting the violence in his outings, Siddiqui laments that he fails for words while narrating the pitiful state of artistes in India due to creative curtailing.

The actor admires the likes of Hong Kong filmmaker Wong Kar-wai, renowned for his digressive imagery, and hopes that with this series, India, too, can put together a masterpiece.

Sacred Games brings the maverick noir filmmaker and his hitmaker protégé together yet again. Rumours suggest that Siddiqui recently dropped by for a look test.

“ It is too early to speak about my role. The screenplay is still under works and we should start rolling by next month. I’m glad that my work will be available to diverse people across > B = countries to enjoy.” Siddiqui will team up with Saif Ali Khan for the first time in this outing. A previous collaboration was on the cards, but it didn’t materialise after the Sujoy Ghosh- directed project failed to kick- off. “ Saif Ali Khan and I will bring out the wicked side of each other, which is also a requirement of the series.” Sacred Games delves into the links between organised crime and politics in India.

NEWS of Saif Ali Khan playing Inspector Sartaj Singh in one the most definitive books on Mumbai–Vikram Chandra’s `Sacred Games’–is out, and it has us waiting with bated breath. But what’s equally exciting is that the digital series will be directed by Vikramaditya Motwane and Anurag Kashyap.

The two directors and business partners go back a long way.

And, while the other two part ners in the company Madhu Mantena and Vikas Bahl ­ are barely on speaking terms, Motwane and Kashyap have held on thick. We often know a blockbuster even before we see one, and the film could mark the rise of a new phoenix for the two co-directors.
