Saif Ali Khan is the next big name from Bollywood to make his debut on the streaming screen with the Netflix series, Sacred Games. Saif plays an investigator in the Mumbai Metropolis in the series that’s based on a novel of the same name. During an interview, Saif said that more and more actors will be making their way onto the streaming screens because of the freedom that the medium provides. He said that streaming platforms like Amazon and Netflix work in a much creative space and have the budgets to bring the director’s thoughts on screen.

Since the past year, many actors, actresses and directors are making in roads into the world of streaming. After Farhan Akhtar effectively brought several mainstream to streaming with his series Inside Edge, Zoya Akhtar will soon be making a crime-drama series for Amazon Prime. Many veteran actors, like Jackie Shroff, Madhoo and Neena Gupta have performed in one-off short films that show them in a very different light than the cookie cutter films that they have performed in.
