Saif Ali Khan has exciting things to look forward to in 2018. Besides the black comedy Kaalakandi, which releases on January 12, the actor will be seen as a cop, Sartaj Singh, in Sacred Games.

The actor recalls shooting in a public toilet for Sacred Games.

Saif Ali Khan is perhaps one of the few actors who will venture into a new zone with Sacred Games. However, he doesn’t want to categorise it as a web series.

He says, “It is not a web series. I want to call it streaming content. So far, it is very artistic and Vikramaditya Motwane and Anurag Kashyap are amazing to work with. This is the first time I am working with them. They are helping me improve my game tremendously. It’s an exciting space.”

The series, based on Indian author Vikram Chandra’s novel of the same name, will feature Saif as Sartaj Singh. Set in Mumbai, the series delves into the city’s intricate web of organised crime, corruption, politics and espionage that lie beneath India’s economic renaissance.

The actor recalls shooting in a public toilet for Sacred Games. He says, “We had to shoot in a public bathroom. It is the worst thing I have seen. I was worried about Hepatitis. So they cleaned it up because I couldn’t breathe. I felt like I will die here.” Currently, the actor is busy promoting his film Chef.
