OTT Platforms are doing a huge business in India today. Especially during the lockdown, the traffic on these Platforms has increased a lot with people binging over their favorite web series and movies.
But the trend to the series and OTT was started by none other than the Nawazuddin Siddiqui and Saif Ali Khan starrer Sacred Games. It would not be wrong to say that Sacred Games changed the whole concept of OTT in India. With its gruesome, dark, and top-notch violence it made it to the best web series made till date. It became the only Indian Web Series to be featured in the New York Times- ” The 30 Best International TV shows of the decade list”. The show became the most streamed web series on Netflix soon. According to Netflix vice president Todd Yellin, the first season was watched twice as many people outside India as in India.
with the first season leaving the people amazed and leaving the show on a cliffhanger people were much excited for season 2 Netflix renewed the show and announced its season 2 soon and was released on 15th August of 2020 but to people expectations, the show did not do well as the storyline went more complex into characters of Sartaj and Gaitonde people didn’t see the gruesome violence and dark humor that they saw in the first season. Therefore the second season was a letdown for the people.
At the end of the second season, the show ends without answering the mystery that the whole show revolved around. Therefore the people were expecting that a third season might be renewed to answer the mystery. But in a recent interview, Nawazuddin Siddiqui cleared the air around the third season and said no such development is underway right now as all the story that was in the novel has been depicted successfully and we do not have anything else to show now if we were to launch a Season 3 then it would be a new story and we have to make things up then.
Siddiqui and Saif Ali Khan starrer sacred games are adapted from Vikram Chandra’s 2006 novel of the same name. Saif Ali Khan in an earlier interview also said that there are no plans regarding Season 3 as the story has been told the way it should have been told according to the novel, therefore, Season 3 is not coming anytime soon.
