Netflix’ Sacred Games is undoubtedly one of the best web series we have seen so far on the digital platform in India. The first season received a great response and now we are eagerly waiting for the second season of the show which is currently being shot in Mumbai and Kenya simultaneously. The show is already bringing home some big awards. Recently, at Asiatec Awards in Singapore, the web series won two awards including Best Director (Anurag Kashyap) and Best Editor (Aarti Bajaj). Kashyap took to Instagram to share this good news with the fans of the web series.
Kashyap attended the award function to receive the honour and revealed, through Instagram, that Sacred Games received seven nominations which is highest for a web series at the award function. We are sure this is just the beginning and Sacred Games will be winning many more such awards. Thanks to the fantastic first season, fans of the web series are super excited for the second season. While Saif Ali Khan is shooting for the web series in Mumbai, Nawaz is working on his portions in Kenya.

The show was hit with a fair bit of trouble too. There were #MeToo allegations against the writer of the show Varun Grover. Reportedly, Netflix was planning to shelve the second season but conducted due diligence before restarting shoot again. Now we wait for an official announcement for the release date of season 2.
