Saif Ali Khan is back in his turbaned avatar as he begins shooting for the second season of the popular Netflix series Sacred Games. The show seemed to have been derailed when its producer Vikas Bahl and writer Varun Grover were both accused of sexual harassment. But now, it’s back on track.
Shooting for Season 2 has just begun in Mumbai, with the Xavier’s Institute of Communications doubling up as the police headquarters. And Saif is back to playing Inspector Sartaj Singh, a gritty Sikh cop modelled after the Mumbai Police Force’s Parambir Singh.
Says an eyewitness from the Xavier’s campus, “Saif’s character had his finger chopped off at the end of the first season. Now, he’s resumed shooting with a bandaged finger.”
Season 1 of the show was directed by Vikramaditya Motwane and Anurag Kashyap. But this time, Motwane has been replaced by Masaan director Neeraj Ghaywan.
