Netflix’ iconic show ‘Sacred Games’ has had two season runs, one which proved successful and the other disappointing. Over the past few months, fans have been calling for a third instalment of the crime thriller but that now seems unlikely.
Talking about the show, Nawazuddin Siddiqui, who has appeared in both seasons, told a leading publication, “Sacred Games got the kind of worldwide acclaim that none of us associated with the series had seen before. I remember shooting in Rome for Tannishta Chatterjee’s film and over there too there were so many people talking to me about Sacred Games. So we all felt it was right to do it again, and we did a second season.”
He added, “Perhaps, somewhere the intention behind Season 2 was not as sincere as the first time. I admit Sacred Games 2 was a disappointment.”
Asked about plans for a third season, Siddiqui said, “Whatever had to be said from the original novel has already been said. There is nothing left in Vikram Chandra’s novel to be put in Season 3.”
‘Sacred Games’ also stars Saif Ali Khan and Pankaj Tripathi.
