Just like the previous part, Sacred Games 2 will also revolve around Saif Ali Khan’s character Sartaj Singh. Talking about the second season and its plotline, Netflix India said in its official statement, “The second season picks up from Sartaj Singh pursuing his relentless battle of saving the city and Ganesh Gaitonde (Nawazuddin Siddiqui) facing bigger challenges to retain his position as the legendary kingpin of Mumbai. The intriguing Guruji (Pankaj Tripathi), introduced in season one as Gaitonde’s third father, plays a pivotal role in unfolding a chain of events that shape the next season”.
