Sacred Games has proved to be biggest hit in the web series world. The first season of the web series directed by Anurag Kashyap and Vikramaditya Motwane and starring Saif Ali Khan, Nawazuddin Siddiqui, Radhika Apte in lead talked about a great threat revolving on the Mumbai city.
While the first season told the story of gangster Ganesh Gaitonde played by Nawazuddin Siddiqui, there was a great part of the story left to be told. There were talks going around that 3 more seasons of the web series will come out but no announcement from the team was made.
Now Pankaj Tripathi has talked about Sacred Games’ season 2 saying that his character Guruji will become as big as Ganesh Gaitonde in the next part of the series. Pankaj Tripathi was shown in a small but memorable role in the season 1. He was the “3rd father” – 3rd among the men who largely influenced Ganesh Gaitonde and in the next part of the series, we’ll see more of him.
Speaking to Mid-Day, the actor said, “Guruji is a larger-than-life part and will become the most sought-after character in the series. My character becomes as big as Gaitonde.”
Speaking about his relationship with Nawaz, with whom he worked on the Gangs of Wasseypur films, Tripathi said, “Nawaz bhai and I lived in the same hostel at the NSD (National School Of Drama). We admire each other’s work. Since we come from the same acting background, our approach to work is similar. We have been taught by the same people. When we meet, we hardly talk work, we reminisce about the old times.”
Isn’t that exciting?
