Sacred Games season 2 is the most awaited season this year. Nawazuddin Siddiqui’s new statement has ignited the excitement in fans even more. The star said that upcoming season is season 1’s ‘baap.
“This season will be the baap of the first one. Even if people know Ganesh Gaitonde, they won’t know what to expect from him. We shot extensively across Mombasa, Cape Town and Johannesburg,” Nawaz shared.
The actor plays gangster Ganesh Gaitonde in the show, which traces his origins while in a parallel plot, Saif Ali Khan’s inspector Sartaj Singh goes on a race-against-time mission to save Mumbai from an impending attack.
Gaitonde is killed in the first episode of the series, and the rest of the first season tells his story in flashback. Season two will further explore his tale, and his relationship with Pankaj Tripathi’s character, Guruji. Tripathi also shot in Africa for season two.
The season proved to be a huge success on International level as it was released in 191 countries with subtitles in 20 languages. Netflix recently revealed that two out of three viewers of the show came from outside India.
The fame of the movie went higher than the expectations of the star. He shared “I realised the impact of the show when I was shooting in Rome, a week after its release. People came up to me to click pictures. My team would show me the memes that were doing the rounds on the Internet.”
