Netflix’s Sacred Games is considered to be among the most popular web series in India. The show has a massive following, and one character that made quite a mark on the audience was Jatin Sarna. He shined in the role of Bunty in Sacred Games, and recently opened up about a certain scene that he was hesitant about. He shared that while he had reservations about shooting a nude scene, director Anurag Kashyap reassured him and calmed him down.
Jatin Sarna said that he was hesitant about the nude scene, but was reassured by Anurag Kashyap that he could keep his underwear on. However, Jatin said he was surprised to see that CGI was used to digitally remove the underwear in the scene. Jatin Sarna appeared in a Sacred Games reaction video with comedian Tanmay Bhat, wherein he talked about shooting for a ‘make’out’ scene. Jatin said that on that day he was extremely nervous shooting for the scene and approached Anurag Kashyap asking him if something could be done.
He said Anurag’s reply was, “Tu paagal hai kya?” Kashyap then told him how he would be wearing underwear in the scene and had no reason to worry.
He then added how he was called to the Phantom Films Office, and was asked to see a scene. “I saw myself nude, and I was like ‘what is this!?’ They also planted a p*nis, and I was like ‘what is this, I wasn’t even naked!’”
He was then told that he had moved so much while filming the scene that his legs had parted and had they smoothened it out, it would have looked strange. Jatin said that he told them to remove the shot, but was told he had signed a contract which mentioned about appearing nude. Jatin then requested actors to read documents thoroughly.
