Netflix India on Friday announced that Sacred Games, the crime drama based on Vikram Chandra’s epic novel, had been renewed for a second season following a hugely popular first batch of eight episodes. While the accompanying teaser video revealed no new footage or lines of dialogue, it did suggest that Nawazuddin Siddiqui’s gangster, Ganesh Gaitonde, would be returning in some capacity.

Details for the hugely anticipated second season, which pick up from where the finale abruptly left off, have been rare.

So, to be in one of them is wonderful. It is exciting that audience in 190 countries will watch it together.” The actor, who plays a RAW agent, looks around and tells her colleagues: “There, I have answered for everybody.”

Khan, who is enjoying his delayed lunch, chips in, “We will be compared to a lot of international shows as well as actors. The cultural requirement and tone for the show are more international.

The wait is over. Netflix has finally released it’s first Indian original, Sacred Games into the world. Based on Vikram Chandra’s novel by the same name, it is the story of Sartaj Singh (Saif Ali Khan), an honest but jaded police inspector, who receives a tip about crime lord Ganesh Gaitonde’s (Nawazzuddin Siddiqui) return to Mumbai after 15 years.
