Sacred Games was the first Netflix original series in India and saw an unprecedented success and pulled the audience towards the streaming platform. The writing and performances were loved by the critics and audience alike.
Seeing the super success of the first season, the audience were eagerly waiting for the second one. However, the second season of the series could not live up to the audience’s expectations and received a lukewarm response.
While everyone has their own reasons, the show’s actor Nawazuddin Siddiqui recently opened up sharing his thoughts as why the second season could not recreate the same magic.
According to him, the introduction of the new characters did not work in the favour of the show as it takes time to establish new characters and the audience was very strongly connected with the old ones.
During an interview with Bollywood Hungama, Nawazuddin said, “They tried to put everything in the second season. The show got dull because of the introduction of new characters as they had to be established. I think new characters have not worked much because the audience had a very strong association with the old characters. I did not enjoy the introduction of new characters much.”
He also added, “Efforts were made to bring the show on philosophical level which is good but it was getting very preachy. The dialogues got very philosophical. The philosophy should not be in dialogues but in action. Let the audience think.”
On the work front, Nawazuddin Siddiqui is currently busy in the promotions of his upcoming film Motichoor Chaknachoor where he will be seen opposite Athiya Shetty.
He will also be seen in Roam Rome Mein which has received huge applause at its Indian premiere at the 21st edition of Jio MAMI Mumbai Film Festival with Star.
