THIS IS WHAT NAWAZUDDIN SIDDIQUI HAS TO SAY ABOUT 'SACRED GAMES 2'

It has been quite a while since we have told you that the makers of Netflix original series Sacred Games announced the second season of this series. While Saif Ali Khan is already done shooting for his part in Mumbai last year, Nawazuddin Siddiqui and Pankaj Tripathi have begun shooting for their part in South Africa.

Fresh off the Africa schedule, Siddiqui says,

"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 [Kenya], Cape Town and Johannesburg." Point out how the new season - slated to drop online mid-2019 - comes with its set of expectations, and he says, "I realized 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."

The actor also added saying;

"I have left no stone unturned to absorb the nuances of Ganesh Gaitonde," begins Nawazuddin Siddiqui, aware that his crime lord character from Sacred Games has become an icon in its own right. With the first season of the homegrown Netflix original having won much applause, the onus is on the makers - directors Anurag Kashyap and Neeraj Ghaywan, and showrunner Vikramaditya Motwane - to present a worthy second installment.

Before starting their final week-long schedule in Mumbai tomorrow, Siddiqui says that like most collaborations with Kashyap, this too has been worthwhile.

"When Anurag is working with me, he is constantly pushing me to break my own boundaries. It comes from familiarity and my ability to go on a rollercoaster with him. As an actor, I am someone who enjoys twirling myself up."

 On the work front, Nawazuddin Siddique is recently seen in the movie Thackeray. The film is based on the life of former Shivsena supremo Balasaheb Thackeray.
