Happy Father's Day! If you're looking for some inspiration as to how you'll be wishing your dad today, fret not as Ganesh Gaitonde can show you. Played by Nawazuddin Siddiqui in Netflix's super hit Sacred Games, Ganesh Gaitonde is ready with a heartfelt message for not one, not two, but three fathers, who all play a pivotal role in his story. While Ganesh’s past with the first two fathers was ascertained in Season 1, the secret behind the third father, Guruji (expertly played by Pankaj Tripathi), will be revealed in the much awaited Season 2, which will drop on Netflix later this year.

In an earlier interview, Nawazuddin Siddiqui spoke about his role in the web-series, “I don’t think I am repeating myself, or even the characters. We misuse the word repetition. There are actors, who are offered different roles, and yet you can only see them — the actor in it and not the character. I think my portrayal of Dilly (McMafia) is quite different than that of Gaitonde. Gaitonde is so layered, his backstory is a big factor in his complexity.”
Ganesh Gaitonde's foil on series, Sartaj Singh is played by Bollywood actor Saif Ali Khan. In an exclusive interview with The Scroll, the actor touched upon Netflix and the kind of content it creates, "There were no apprehensions as such. Netflix is a natural universe when it comes to entertainment in today’s times. We knew that the guys are serious about the kind of content they want to produce, the production house has their best directors directing, the cast was good, the technicians working on it were good. So if there were any apprehensions, it was whether Indian actors and technicians could perform internationally or not. So that was one fear. Because you get used to acting in a certain way, which is fine, but it might not be everyone’s cup of tea. There had to be tweaks. There were times when Vikramaditya Motwane would tell me, you are doing a bit much, put it down a bit, because it’s for a different audience."Read More
