After Saif Ali Khan and Nawazuddin Siddiqui, Sacred Games finally has its female lead- Radhika Apte. Buzz is that she will be paired opposite Saif in this Netflix and Phantom Films’ presentation.
Based on Vikram Chandra’s book by the same name, the series will be Netflix’s first original series in India and will be made in Hindi and English. The book is set in Mumbai and revolves around corruption, politics and crime in the city.
Radhika’s brush with digital entertainment is not new. She received acclaim for Sujoy Ghosh’s short film Ahalya and Shirish Kunder’s Kriti. She previously shared screen space with her Sacred Games co-star Nawaz in the critically acclaimed film, Manjhi-The Mountain Man. Radhika is expected to screen space with Saif in Nikhil Advani’s Baazaar. Wonder who from the two suggested her name for Sacred Games?
