With less than 48 hours left for Sacred Games 2 to go live. Here we are with an insight into the female characters of Sacred Games 2 — each one is pivotal to the story.
There is a very popular and time-proven saying, that behind every man (successful or otherwise), there is a woman. For Sacred Games 2 villain, Ganesh Gaitonde (Nawazuddin Siddiqui), there are three.
Ganesh Gaitonde’s holy trinity — is completed with his Master, KD Yadav (Amruta Subhash), his Mistress, Zoya (Elnaaz Norouzi), and his Muse, Jojo (Surveen Chawla) all of whom have had deep impacts on the arc of his story in this Netflix Original series, and play pivotal roles in shaping his negative character.
Each one of these 3 females, share a unique relationship with him, they help him in surprising ways and use him to further their own personal agendas.
Sacred Games has earned the appreciation in a male-dominated society, for its portrayal of strong female characters in the series.
Strong females are their on either sides of the law. Apart from the above mentioned 3 females, there are extremely headstrong Kanta Bai (Shalini Vatsa), or Guruji’s most devoted disciple, Batya Abelman (Kalki Koechlin), all these women know what they desire and will go to any length to make sure they have it.
Commenting on the dynamic her character shares with Gaitonde, the Master, Amruta Subhash, shares,
“As much as Nawaz loves me, Gaitonde hates my character, KD Yadav. She is a RAW agent who controls him, keeps him away from his beloved Mumbai, and makes him a pawn in her bigger game.”
And the mistress, Elnaaz Norouzi, shares,
“Zoya’s only dream is to become a movie star. She meets a rich Gaitonde, and relies on him to fulfil her dream. Gaitonde casts her in the movie he produces on his life. But it’s not as simple as it seems — their relationship will see an upheaval of sorts this season.”
And the muse, Surveen Chawla, says,
“Jojo becomes Gaitonde’s one trusted friend when every other relationship fails him. She is fearless and speaks her mind, and always gives it back to him, which is what he appreciates about her. In some ways, she is his muse, his inspiration, and his safety net. But her life has been far from a cakewalk, and that is what has hardened her in many ways. The bond between Gaitonde and Jojo is unique and quite special.”
Sacred Games Season 2 will premiere on Netflix on August 15, 2019.
