Streaming platform Netflix’s first original Indian show Sacred Games has been generating high interest, and rightly so.

The eight-episode series, which will be available on Netflix from July 6, is packed with pedigree. Sacred Games has been directed by reputed filmmakers Anurag Kashyap and Vikramaditya Motwane and has a top-drawer cast that includes Saif Ali Khan, Nawazuddin Siddiqui and Radhika Apte. The adaptation of Vikram Chandra’s 2007 novel of the same name revolves around police officers, the Research and Analysis Wing, the underworld, corrupt politicians, shady godmen, and a nuclear bomb. Netflix’s involvement will ensure that Indian talent gets a global platform – even though the novel is in English and the series will mostly be in Hindi.

Bollywood actors are not only limited to big screens but they also want to try new mediums where they can showcase their acting skills. There is no doubt that online streaming apps have taken over television. The internet is bringing evolution in films – the way the youth watches. Web-series are the new-age watching experience for the majority of the viewers. Earlier, web series was something that only a few actors did and they stuck to their genre. Sumeet Vyas who started his career from web series is now doing mainstream films like Veere Di Wedding and actors like Nawazuddin Siddiqui, is moving to the digital age of social media.

Saif Ali Khan: Saif Ali Khan was seen playing a very different role in the film Kaalakandi and was applauded because it was very different from what the actor had done. Saif is all set to make his debut into the digital space by playing the lead for the Netflix Original Series, Sacred Games. The Netflix original web series is directed by Vikramaditya Motwane and is based on the thriller novel by Vikram Chandra. The show releases mid this year.

Saif Ali Khan is said to have told filmmaker Vikramaditya Motwane when approached for the web series Sacred Games.

“Why would I not do something like this?” actor Saif Ali Khan is said to have told filmmaker Vikramaditya Motwane when approached for the web series Sacred Games. Saif loved it and was ready for it, he tells us.

The Lootera and Udaan director said: “It’s so enriching for an actor to do a webseries as they are not stuck in a format where you have to tell the story in two hours. Internationally, many are doing such series.”

Netflix’s first India-set original series Sacred Games is based on author Vikram Chandra’s best-selling novel of the same name. The series, shot in real locations in Mumbai, will delve into the city’s intricate web of organised crime, corruption, politics and espionage.

Further praising the Omkara actor, Vikramaditya said, “It was great fun working with Saif. He was very passionate. He is a great actor and brings a lot to the role.” The director is now busy promoting his film Bhavesh Joshi.

The action-packed Bhavesh Joshi will see Harshvardhan as a vigilante fighting corruption in the society. Unfortunately, it is clashing with sister Sonam Kapoor’s Veere Di Wedding on June 1 but we are sure it will find its own audience.
