Saif Ali Khan, who made his digital debut with Sacred Games admitted that he did not like the second season like the first season and explains why the show failed to get the audience attention.
In a recent interview with mid-day, Saif himself admitted that while he loved the first season, he admitted that the second season was a letdown and for several reasons lost connection with the audience.
He added, “The first season was the most interesting thing I had ever seen on television from any country, especially Kubbra's [Sait] Cuckoo track and how she went on to do frontal nudity. The love story between Ganesh Gaitonde [Nawazuddin Siddiqui's character] and Cuckoo was phenomenal, as was the way sex was treated between them. For me, the way she played the character put the show into a league of its own. Many people said that they loved the first season, but felt that we lost the plot with the [track of] Guruji [Pankaj Tripathi's character]. The open-ended climax didn't go down well with the audience, although I liked it."
In another interview Saif revealed that Karan Johar has warned him of the second season curse’ although he argues that it is brilliant and now he knows how the filmmaker was truth in his prediction.
Meanwhile, Said is all set to star in another web-series, Tandav, which the actor says is on the lines of acclaimed American political thriller House of Cards. A Netflix series, House of Cards, revolved around a Democrat who climbed his way to the US presidential office.
It featured Kevin Spacey and Robin Wright in the lead. Saif said the show is based on Indian politics and is set on a massive scale.
"I don't want to use American examples, but it's along the lines of 'House Of Cards', although set within the framework of Indian politics.
The plot takes into account various factions like Dalit politics and UP cops and the whole nexus between them," the actor said in a statement.
Saif will play the role of a politician in the show, to be helmed by "Bharat" director Ali Abbas Zafar. "My character is Chanakya-like, in the guise of a youth leader who comes from a privileged background and aspires to become the prime minister," he added
