Sacred Games teaser: Nawazuddin Siddiqui plays gangster with a God complex in Mumbai’s seedy underbelly

Netflix’s first Indian original series, Sacred Games, now has a second teaser.

In the 54-second long clip, you see Ganesh Gaitonde (Nawazuddin Siddiqui) light a match and set fire to a large area in front of him as he sits on a couch and smokes a cigarette. Gaitonde then says, “Kabhi kabhi lagta hai ki apun hi bhagwan hai” (“Sometimes I feel I am God“). The teaser is then swarmed with images of Mumbai, and Saif Ali Khan and Radhika Apte’s characters running around with guns in the city’s seedy underbelly. There are fast-moving visuals of gold bars, stacks of cash, dance bars, and drug deals. There are men dragging around dead bodies and carrying machine guns to shoot indiscriminately.

The trailer shows us that the world of criminals, the police, glamour, and politicians will intertwine in Sacred Games. The teaser ends with Ganesh Gaitonde asking, “Bhagwan ko maante ho?” (Do you believe in God?) over a stunned and scared expression of Saif Ali Khan’s character Sartaj Singh. Surveen Chawla is also seen in the latest teaser.

The first teaser for Sacred Games introduced the backdrop of Mumbai in voices of Saif Ali Khan and Nawazuddin Siddiqui. Sacred Games will be an eight-part series and is based on Vikram Chandra’s 2006 novel of the same name.
