The Cocktail actor also said that Varun Dhawan also called him up to speak about this show. He was all praise for the show. Speaking about what Dhawan told him, Saif told the portal, "I remember Varun Dhawan was all praises for the show and rang up. A lot of people rang up, so that was nice. But even more important was the fact that we were representing our country on a global level and the kind of reviewers that write about it don't normally review the films we do. They were testing and watching us whether we can hold on our own on that platform and I think we did and that is a huge achievement for the technical team and everyone behind the camera as well as all the actors, who've done such a phenomenal job."

When the series came to an end, there was a trend on social media stating that they wanted a second season of Sacred Games. Recently, the Sacred Games 2 trailer was unveiled and takes the characters of Nawaz and Saif ahead. The season will be shedding light on Pankaj Tripathi's character, Guruji. There are talks of Pankaj Tripathi's character being inspired by the controversial godman Rajneesh Osho. Talking about it, a source earlier told mid-day, "Pankaj Tripathi's styling is almost similar to Rajneesh Osho, whose so-called religious movement was at its peak in the '80s. In terms of the writing too, Guruji's character seems to be woven like the cult figure."

Sacred Games 2 will start streaming from August 15, 2019.
