The wait is finally over for Sacred Games fan. The much-awaited Sacred Games 2 is all set to hit the digital platform soon. Saif Ali Khan, who played the role of inspector Sartaj Singh in Season 1, will be seen in a different look in the second season. While he had to gain some kilos for its first season, this time things were opposite he was asked to lose some kilos.
In a F2F to MensXP, Saif shared the secret recipe that helped him prepare for Sardar Sartaj Singh’s look. These were his words,
“I think physically, for the first part, it was putting on some good muscle and weight. There were even some higher heeled shoes. Not like I look like a tough Sardarji normally, but I did look like a tough Sardar. So that was an achievement because they are quite tough and heavy.”
“So, the second one kind of leaned out a bit. You know, ostensibly because of the stress of getting your thumb cut off and trying to save the world, but also to look a bit more like a hero.”
“Learning Punjabi, figuring out body language, proper acting, and then figuring out that everybody has a different ‘approach’ to things. So he is troubled and honest. So whatever lines you’re given, you have to say them in a troubled and honest way. So these various things helped create Sartaj,” he concluded.
The Sacred Games Second Season will come alive on Netflix on coming Independence Day Eve i.e August 15. Nawazuddin Siddiqui, Surveen Chawla, Pankaj Tripathi and others, who were there in the first season, will continue to be a part of the second one. While Ranvir Shenoy and Kalki Koechlin are new additions to the cast.
Talking about other 15th August releases, John Abraham’s: Batla House and Akshay Kumar’s: Mission Mangal are also making a silver screen landing on the Independence Day Eve.
