India’s first homegrown Netflix original Sacred Games piqued audience curiosity, ever since the project was announced.

After 11 years, writer Vikram Chandra’s 2006 thriller ‘Sacred Games’ is finally being adapted on screen, and it was a long time coming. It’s honestly quite surprising how this novel, which is considered one of the most memorable books on Mumbai, hasn’t been turned into a movie or TV show till now.

Becoming the first Indian show in the Netflix Originals category, ‘Sacred Games’ will be an eight-part series. At the press conference held to the announce the production, Chandra insisted on how crucial it will be for any screen adaptation of the novel to be multilingual. “With Netflix, the opportunity to have that multilingual flavour was unpassable,” he adds.

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.”

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.

It seems the web series for NetFlix to be directed by Vikramaditya Motwane is getting bigger and bigger. We had said in this very column that this web series, Sacred Games, is about a protagonist (Saif Ali Khan) versus an antagonist (Nawazuddin Siddiquie).

Now Motwane is adding more and more known faces to this web series to raise interest levels and widen its reach. Last week, the new additions were two ladies – Radhika Apte and Surveen Chawla.

No prizes for guessing that one lady will be paired with the antagonist and the other with the protagonist. It will be interesting to see who’s paired with whom, isn’t it?
