Netflix original ‘Sacred Games’ is streaming online and has received rave reviews from the audience as well as the critics too. For the web series, India’s biggest talents Saif Ali Khan, Nawazuddin Siddiqui, Radhika Apte, Vikramaditya Motwane, Anurag Kashyap came together.

Saif Ali Khan plays inspector Sartaj Singh in Netflix’s Sacred Games while Nawazuddin Siddiqui plays the antagonist role of Ganesh Gaitonde. The show is inspired from Vikram Chandra’s epic book Sacred Games. The show is directed by Vikramaditya Motwane who earlier directed movies like Udaan, Lootera, and the recent Bhavesh Joshi Superhero.

He was contacted by Netflix and he read the 900-page book in time and set up a meeting with Netflix. It is the first Indian original of Netflix, a popular streaming giant. Motwane said,“it would mean more work for all of us, more work for new writers, actors, directors, and as an Indian, something to be really proud of.”

Well, the leading actors of the series have something to say about it:

Saif Ali Khan while talking about the show said, “We will be compared to a lot of international shows as well as actors. The cultural requirement and tone for the show are more international. It’s liberating for actors to compete internationally.” He further said, “This changes the whole morality around making a show. However, since Sacred Games is a premium show for Netflix, they have taken a lot of care for art direction and production.”

While, Radhika Apte said, “I have been watching so many amazing shows on Netflix. So, to be in one of them is wonderful. It is exciting that audience in 190 countries will watch it together.”

Nawazuddin Siddiqui said, “You can’t gauge his mood. There is an internal struggle going on within him. It is a character with depth.”

As a whole, this Netflix original is going to put India on a world map of Cinema, making every Indian proud.
