Now, the premium streaming service platform has launched the first look of the first Netflix original of India. Yes, too many firsts for you there. Here's another one — Saif Ali Khan in the role of a Sikh police officer. Saif is seen in one of the three pictures released as part of the first look, in a turbaned avatar, wearing the uniform and pointing a gun inside a dimly lit basement. There is blood smeared all over his hands and face which adds to the picture's intrigue.

In the second still, Radhika Apte is seen staring at a man standing besides her (is it Saif?) as she stares into his eyes disapprovingly. She wears western clothes, a departure from her most recent film, R Balki's Padman. 

The third still has Nawazuddin Siddiqui slyly smiling at himself while admiring his sherwani (or the sly smile?) inside what looks like a middle class abode. He seems to be the happiest out of the lot.

Sacred Games will be directed by both Anurag Kashyap (Nawazuddin's track) and Vikramaditya Motwane (Saif and Radhika's track). It will be bankrolled by Kashyap, Motwane, Vikas Bahl and Madhu Mantena's Phantom Films.
