Saif Ali Khan, whose last film 'Baazaar' was an average fare box office, is actually making the real ripples in the world of web series. His Netflix show 'Sacred Games', opened to rave reviews and has since enjoyed a cult status among its fans. Now here is a super exciting update on the upcoming season of the show. In a picture that has surfaced on social media, Saif was spotted in his Sartaj Singh avatar, the troubled cop who uncovers the dark past of the dreaded gangster Gaitonde. The picture was apparently taken in a college in Mumbai and it is confirmation enough that the shooting for the second season has resumed. Check out the picture here:
The makers of the show had already started working on the second season after releasing the pilot season but had suffered a delay after some serious allegations on Varun Grover, who is one of the show's writers. After being accused of sexual harassment by an anonymous woman, there were talks of the show getting cancelled. However, the matter has since died down and most have now assumed the allegations to be false. Netflix had also officially confirmed that the second season is definitely on.
Earlier, in a cryptic response, Sacred Games star Saif Ali Khan had hinted that the core team of the series including show-runners Anurag Kashyap, Vikramaditya Motwane, and writer Varun Grover, may see a shuffle in the wake of the #MeToo movement. Thankfully no such major changes have taken place and the second season will be helmed together by Anurag and Vikram, just like its predecessor. While the 'Mukkabaaz' filmmaker will be shooting for scenes involving the gangster Gaitonde, played by Nawazuddin Siddiqui, the 'Bhavesh Joshi' director will oversee the portions involving Saif's Sartaj Singh. Other than this, the next season is expected to shed more light on Pankaj Tripathi's character, who seems to be playing a religious leader of some sort.
In terms of films, Saif will be next seen in Ajay Devgn's 'Tanaaji'.
