Saif On The Success Of Sacred Games, Models His career On Tom Hardy

 In an effort to get the optimum work done without compromising  on  the quality  of  work,  Netflix has appointed two  separate  directors to direct the two  parallel  plots  involving Saif Ali Khan and Nawazuddin Siddiqui.

While  Anurag  Kashyap is  directing all the  episodes  featuring  the  character  Ganesh Gaitonde(Siddiqui), NeerajGhaiwan(of Masaan fame) directs the episodes  featuring Saif Ali  Kham as the Sikh cop Sartaj Singh.

Interestingly, this is not the  first time that Saif has scored resounding success as  a Sardarji. Imtiaz Ali’s Love Aaj Kal where he played  the lovelorn  Sardar  ,remains Saif’s most beloved  cinematic part to date.

Saif admits Sacred Games is a game-changer in his  career and indicative  of  the rapid changes in the cinematic platform. “The world  is different now. Cinema  and web are agnostic  brothers. Just look at the career  of Tom Hardy. He plays any and everything from the hero to  villain and he treats the  home and theatre  media with  equal  respect.He has his own television show while he rules the  big screen.”

 Saif  is clearly enjoying  himself doing Sacred Games for a second season. “They  pay so well! And there  are talented actors and technicians  doing intelligent things: (author) Vikram Chandra,(director Neeraj Ghaywan),  (writer) Varun  Grover…It’s a lovely environment.”
