Sacred Games first look: Saif, Radhika Apte, Nawazuddin are intense and intriguing in Netflix India's first original show
Saif Ali Khan is seen as a Sikh police officer with blood smeared all over his face. Sacred Games is directed by Anurag Kashyap and Vikramaditya Motwane.
This past August, Netflix India announced its first original show — Sacred Games, based on Vikram Chandra's popular novel of the same name.
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.
