While fans are excited for Netflix India’s most-anticipated show Sacred Games Season 2 led by Saif Ali Khan and Nawazuddin Siddiqui, Sartaj Singh has revealed that Gaitonde’s story will end with the 2nd season. Yes, you heard that right! During a recent conversation with PTI, the Baazaar actor has revealed that the cleverest thing he has done in his career is making a foray into the digital world. He also said that the story of Sacred Games will end with season 2 and he isn’t sure if there will be another season.
Speaking to PTI, Saif said, “This story ends at the end of this season. So I don’t know if they will extend it. This is a fairly solid conclusion. (But) There is always scope for more.” Talking about him being a part of digital, “Here (in digital medium) there is a difference in pace, tone and even with acting, like they try to bring it down a bit. You have to trust the camera that the emotion will be captured correctly if you feel it within. The approach is different, sometimes a Gaiety (single-screen theatre) crowd, although it is changing, might feel that you are not doing anything but you are. They (films and web) are both different platforms. I am platform agnostic now. It is the cleverest thing I have been part of."
He further spoke about the twists and turns in 2nd season, Saif added, “It (season two) is so cleverly done. It goes back to the past and future and everything ties up. Season one is quite basic compared to season two. Season two is where we change gears. In season one you know about them, but in season two you are up to it.”
Saif defined his character as “wonderfully human but imperfect and flawed”. “I played this character longer than any other character. I think he is the same guy. He is not going to sort out any issue, in fact, it might just get worse. There is no time for wallowing and pity. He is still very imperfect, flawed character and has got addictive nature to alcohol, drugs and pills. He is very under-confident in many ways. He is wonderfully human but a big mess.”
“There is a lot of drama and action happening. He has a lost
a lot of blood, he is not eating much, he is running around a lot and he is not
happy. In the book, he is a very lean and well-dressed sardar. But in the show when
we introduced him he is unhappy and unfit. Then as we progress at a certain
point he looks like what Sartaj Singh is in the book, which is fitter and
leaner,” he elaborated further.
