The series also co-stars Radhika Apte and Nawazuddin Siddiqui. The photo has a bloodied inspector Sartaj Singh point a gun at someone in what appears to be a dark dingy ally. An adaptation of the critically-acclaimed best-selling novel of the same name by author Vikram Chandra, Sacred Games is a series which focuses on Sartaj Singh (Saif), a seasoned and cynical Mumbai police officer, who gets an anonymous tip one fine day to capture the powerful Ganesh Gaitonde (Nawazuddin), criminal overlord of the G-Company. As the stakes mount and Sartaj seeks knowledge of his prey, it becomes clear that the game the two players thought they were engaged in is, in fact, part of a much larger scenario, one that expands beyond their city.
The series has been directed by Vikramaditya Motwane and Anurag Kashyap, the eight episodes long series will depict the underbelly of Mumbai. Incidentally, the web series will mark the debut of director Anurag Kashyap as well.
