The series is divided into 8 episodes and has Saif Ali Khan, Nawazuddin Siddiqui, Radhika Apte, Neeraj Kabi, Kubra Sait, and Luke Kenny amongst many others. Sacred Games is a crime thriller drama that has kept viewers on the edge of their seat.

Set in Mumbai with multiple twists and turns in each episode, Sacred Games takes Vikram Chandra's novel adaptation to a great height. Out of the entire cast of Sacred Games, the surprise package is Pankaj Tripathi who plays a very important character.

The Masaan actor's role has wickedness, a very ruthless yet very subtle and calm character that has been played by Pankaj in his own stride. The plot ends at a point where it has the full potential of a Sacred Games Season 2 where Pankaj will be seen as one of the main characters. The makers have already roped him in to play the main antagonist in season 2 where he will be more dreaded and fearless than Nawazuddin in season 1.
