Netflix released the trailer for the second season of the critically-acclaimed original series Sacred Games, which is set to release on 15 August on its platform, and a scene from the video has already become a meme.
“The game’s bigger, the stakes are higher, and the players are ready. ‘Sacred Games 2’ premieres 15 August, only on Netflix,” the trailer’s description reads.
Saif Ali Khan and Nawazuddin Siddiqui will reprise their parts as Sartaj Singh and Ganesh Gaitonde, with Kalki Koechlin and Ranvir Shorey as the latest additions to the series, and Pankaj Tripathi in a full-fledged role as the mysterious Guruji.
A scene where Tripathi’s Guruji says, “Balidaan dena hoga (Sacrifices must be made)” has already gone viral online.
The trailer has birthed several other memes as well
The hype is well and good. Netflix only has one request.
It looks like fans are prepared.
As in season one, director Anurag Kashyap is at the helm of the portions featuring Siddiqui, while Neeraj Ghaywan of Masaan fame has directed the scenes with Khan, PTI reports.
Vikramaditya Motwane and Varun Grover return as the showrunner and the lead writer, respectively.
Sacred Games is based on Vikram Chandra’s award-winning book of the same name.
