Sacred Games 2 is making noise, not because of its content but because of the controversies that have been pitted against it since its release. Only a few days after its release, the show saw itself in the middle of a few controversies. Director of Sacred Games, Anurag Kashyap& Vikramaditya Motwane landed himself in trouble when Delhi BJP spokesperson Tajinder Bagga had filed a police complaint against the directors for hurting religious sentiments by showing a controversial scene in the series. Sirsa, Akali Dal spokesperson, too had slammed the online streaming platform and director Anurag Kashyap for hurting Sikh community/ And now the series is at it again, dragging UIDAI Aadhaar in the controversy.
Well, after Sacred Games 2: Netflix apologies for showing real UAE number as Sulaiman Isa's Contact Number. Robert Baptiste, whom Twitterati knows better by his moniker, Elliot Alderson (inspired by the lead character's name from Mr Robot) is a French security researcher, known for exposing various breaches and vulnerabilities in the Aadhar database. Of course, the UIDAI has been denying his findings and reiterating that Aadhar is quite safe.

The above scene is taken from the third episode of the second season, when Sartaj Singh (Saif Ali Khan)'s team, while investigating the whereabouts of the doomsday conspiracy, comes across a file with Aadhar details. Elliot Alderson has confirmed that the details shared in the above screenshot are for real and is a major security breach.
Well, we wonder now UIDAI has to say about this.
