Story highlights

While Khan's look remains more or less the same, Gaitonde goes through some makeover perhaps because he ages further in the storyline. 

Nawazuddin Siddiqui mostly wore kurtas and shirts in the first season of Netflix's original 'Sacred Games'. In the second season Siddiqui's character Ganesh Gaitonde suits up. Netflix India revealed the looks of the two lead actors- Siddiqui and Saif Ali Khan as Sartaj Singh- on social media on Friday. 

While Khan's look remains more or less the same, Gaitonde goes through some makeover perhaps because he ages further in the storyline. Netflix India shared what the characters will look like in the much-awaited season. "Pichli baar kya bola tha Ganesh bhai ko? Aukaaat," read the caption for Nawazuddin Siddiqui`s photo.  It`s safe to say that Nawazuddin looks his intriguing best in the poster. It hints at the actor`s rise in the second season as the show follows his story after he died in the first season.
