No Sacred Games 3, Says Nawazuddin!



Nawazuddin Siddiqui 

Another season  of  the  highly-acclaimed  Netflix series Sacred Games seems  out of the  question.  Nawazuddin Siddiqui who acquired a  new level of fame with Sacred Games, admitted as  much  in a conversation this week with  me.

Sacred Games  got  the kind of  worldwide acclaim that  none  of us associated with the series had seen  before. I remember shooting in Rome  for Tannishta Chatterjee’s  film  and over there  too there were so many people  talking to me about Sacred Games. So we all felt it was right to  do  it again, and we  did  a second season ,” says Nawaz.

 He  admits Season 2  was  a relative disappointment. “Perhaps  somewhere  the intention behind Season 2 was not as sincere as   the first time. I admit  Sacred Games 2  was a disappointment.”

As for Season 3 Nawaz  sees  little chance  of that happening.  “Whatever  had to  be said  from  the  original novel has  already been  said. There is  nothing  left in Vikram Chandra’s novel to be put in Season 3.”

Nawaz  admits his character  in Sacred Games  and the dialogues were very popular.  “But I can’t take credit for  the  popularity  of  the lines that I spoke. I  didn’t write them . In India we often  give credit to  the actor  for a  popular line. In Yash Chopra Saab’s Deewaar, Shashi Kapoor Saab  spoke the  line, ‘Mere Paas Maa Hai’. But it was Salim-Javed who write that  line. So the credit must go to  them.”
