Nawazuddin Siddiqui provides Sacred Games season 2 update, calls it the ‘baap’ of season 1

Nawazuddin Siddiqui recently concluded filming the Africa schedule of the second season of Sacred Games. Ahead of a week’s filming in Mumbai, the actor teased fans that the new season of the hit Netflix series will be the ‘baap’ (daddy) of season one.

“This season will be the baap of the first one. Even if people know Ganesh Gaitonde, they won’t know what to expect from him. We shot extensively across Mombasa, Cape Town and Johannesburg,” Nawaz told Mid-Day.

The actor plays gangster Ganesh Gaitonde in the show, which traces his origins while in a parallel plot, Saif Ali Khan’s inspector Sartaj Singh goes on a race-against-time mission to save Mumbai from an impending attack.

Gaitonde is killed in the first episode of the series, and the rest of the first season tells his story in flashback. Season two will further explore his tale, and his relationship with Pankaj Tripathi’s character, Guruji. Tripathi also shot in Africa for season two.
