Commenting on his first tryst with the world of web series, Nawazuddin Siddiqui said, “I rejected Sacred Games initially as I honestly had no idea how the world of web series worked at that point in time. It took Vikramaditya Motwane 1-1.5 months to convince me to do the role.”
On the same lines, Saif Ali Khan shared an anecdote from the time he accepted to work on Sacred Gamed, “A very famous lady actor told my manager, is he doing TV now. This comes from the deep-seeded concept that big screen films are bigger than small screen films.” When asked about his take on social media and why he is not in the social media circuit, Saif added, “Social media, for me, takes away from the concept of celebrity.”
Speaking on the evolution of film industry and the scope that that lays untapped, Tisca Chopra said, “Characters today are far more layered and nuanced. Change has definitely occurred, but that is not enough. We need more characters in our movies with flaws and vulnerabilities.”
Adding to this interesting conversation, Divya Dutta said, “People today want relatable stories. Everyone is looking for their own story in our cinema.”
