The past years have witnessed a sharp increase in Indian audience getting fascinated by Netflix dramas which prompted the network to treat their Indian fans with a surprise. In collaboration with the cream of Hindi film industry, first Netflix original of India 'Sacred Games' is in making.

Dropping the first look of three leading actors, Netflix India delighted the Indian audience to the core. The upcoming thriller of the premium streaming service platform based on Vikram Chandra's best-selling novel with the same name stars Saif Ali Khan, Radhika Apte and Nawazuddin Siddiqui in lead roles.

Saif's bloodied police officer is looking deadly and determined in the still revealed by Netflix. Taking up a turbunator's role shouldn't be a problem for the actor, given his outstanding performance in 'Love Aaj Kal'. Dressed in a police uniform, cop Sartaj Singh is on a mission to catch a criminal.

Singh's target is to capture the G-Company chief Ganesh Gaitonde  (Nawazuddin Siddiqui). Looking dapper in kurta pyjama, Nawaz's gangster is intriguing, who knows his way through several troubles blocking his destination. His calm demeanour and sensible thought process are his USPs.

With two powerful men in the picture, leading lady Radhika Apte also makes her presence known wearing a perplexed look on her face. Her role in the web series is not clear but the actress will reportedly help the authorities in tapping the criminal overlord.

Sacred Games is helmed by two noted Bollywood directors who will handle different tracks of the 8 episode series. Anurag Kashyap will reportedly handle Nawazuddin's track whereas Saif and Radhika's track will be handled by Vikramaditya Motwane. Any further details including the release date of the series are still awaited.
