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.”
