Sacred Games 2 to release on August 15, trailer out

Ganesh Gaitonde and Sartaj Singh are back in Netflix India’s continuing saga of crime and chaos

Published: 09th July 2019

“TRING-TRING”. The trailer of Netflix India’s prestige crime drama, Sacred Games 2, is out. Back are the old players — gangster Ganesh Gaitonde (Nawazuddin Siddiqui) and inspector Sartaj Singh (Saif Ali Khan) — as well as some new suspects. The new season picks up from where we left off, with a nuclear holocaust looming over the city of Mumbai, or even all of India. As Sartaj pieces together the final puzzles, we are introduced to Khanna Guruji (Pankaj Tripathi), Batya Abelman (Kalki Koechlin) and Shahid Khan (Ranvir Shorey). In the past, Gaitonde, who was banged up in a correctional facility, has survived and escaped to Africa. He wants revenge, or a choicy approximation of it. 

The trailer also packs nods to ‘Hiroshima and Nagasaki’, the inevitability of ‘war’, and the need to ‘sacrifice’. Two recurring characters, politician Bipin Bhosle (Girish Kulkarni) and assassin Malcolm Murad (Luke Kelly), appear to play pivotal roles. There’s also buzz Made in Heaven fame Sobhita Dhulipala and Mirzapur’s Harshita Gaur are part of season 2. 

Sacred Games 2 is co-directed by Anurag Kashyap and Neeraj Ghaywan, with Vikramaditya Motwane and Varun Grover resuming as showrunners. Shot extensively in Kenya, Cape Town and Johannesburg, the new season is scheduled to stream on August 15. The series is adapted from Vikram Chandra’s 2006 novel of the same name.
