"It's great (moment), I mean the idea was to do something honest on a platform that is kind of international. Something like Narcos that is a Netflix original and they encourage you tell your story the way you do but in an international way to an international audience.

"Hence I feel in a way it is well deserved to have been nominated at an international platform. Full credit to the team and the production and of course the directors and the lovely actors," Saif, who has won a lot of appreciation for his performance as Sartaj Singh, told Press Trust of India.

The first season of Netflix's first India original was directed by Anurag Kashyap and Vikramaditya Motwane.

Apart from Sacred Games, anthology film Lust Stories and Amazon Prime Video's The Remix are nominated for International Emmy Awards.

Note: The PTI story incorrectly states the second season was nominated. So, it has been edited and corrected.
