Sacred Games 2 has been keenly awaited and now the teaser, as well as the main cast, has been revealed.
The crime thriller web show was streamed last year in the month of July much to the excitement of the fans.
Based on a novel of the same name by Vikram Chandra, the show is set in two different eras:
The rise of Ganesh Gaitonde played by Nawazuddin Siddiqui and the aftermath of his death where life takes a turn for cop Sartaj Singh played by Saif Ali Khan.
The first season of Sacred Games ended on a very shocking note and several favourite characters were killed off too.
The second season will be aired soon this year and will have Saif and Nawazuddin reprising their roles.
Gaitonde’s track is directed by Anurag Kashyap while for the second season Sartaj’s track will be helmed by Neeraj Ghaywan – it was earlier directed by Vikramaditya Motwane.
For the second season, three new cast members have been added.
We got a glimpse of Pankaj Tripathi in season one and now Kalki Koechlin and Ranvir Shorey are the new actors to be seen on the show.
