Anurag Kashyap on shelved third season of Sacred Games

Although web shows started to be produced in India in 2014, it was Netflix's 2018 show 'Sacred Games' which sparked the OTT revolution in our country. It remains one of the most popular and most watched Hindi OTT show of all time and unlike other shows before it, 'Sacred Games' also starred mainstream Bollywood stars like Saif Ali Khan, Radhika Apte etc...

The show was supposed to return for a third season but for ome reason or the other, it was shelved. In a recent media interaction, co-producer Anurag Kashyap shed some light on the controversy regarding the show. He said, "Vikram Motwane was driving Sacred Games. Ten days before I was supposed to go shoot Mukkabaaz, he asked me to come on board."

He added, "I told him I was always interested, but they had a problem with me. Some local people had told them that I didn’t have a female audience. It was my zone, and they eventually came around… A season three was supposed to come out, but they shut it down, Netflix would know why.”

Sharing how OTT can't take risk with its content unlike 5 years ago, Kashyap said, "OTT ki aaj ki date mein himmat nahi hai, Tandav ke baad sab dar gaye hain.”
