It’s been too, too long, but Netflix has finally announced Saif Ali Khan’s first web series, ‘Sacred Games’. Saif Ali Khan was one of the first actors to get hooked onto web series and streaming entertainment. It was only natural for him to look into getting a piece of the lucrative pie.
The series is based on Vikram Chandra’s bestselling novel of the same name. Buzz about Saif’s involvement in the series has been around since a long time. It is only now that Netflix has made the formal announcement.
‘Sacred Games’ is based in a 19th century Mumbai and talks about criminals and police. It is one of the few books to have a connection between organised crime, espionage and local politics.
Phantom Films will be producing this in partnership and the series will be available worldwide once completed. Saif joins the list of A Listers joining the world of web series with ‘Sacred Games’. Currently, Excel’s ‘Inside Edge’, starring Vivek Oberoi, Richa Chadha, Sanjay Suri and others is ruling the roost when it comes to Indian web series.
