Online at Netflix "Sacred Games 2 Web Series to release 12 hours before schedule Time

Netflix-original series Sacred Games' second now has a new release time: 12 am IST on August 15. This means it will be rolled out 12 hours before its original scheduled time of 12 am PST (12:30 pm IST). The release time is for fans all around the globe—so the people living in the western continents, including Europe and Americas, would be able to watch the series on 14 August.


This exception might have been made because of the sheer value Sacred Games holds for Netflix. The crime drama, that stars Nawazuddin Siddiqui, Saif Ali Khan, is the most popular Netflix original series from India, so much so that Netflix invested ₹100 crore on the series—the most any streaming service has spent on creating original content in India. The highest investment on an Indian web show, previously, would be in the range of 3-4 crore (per episode) for around 12 episodes, Mint reported on 13 August.

What's new this time?

Ganesh Gaitonde (Nawazuddin Siddiqui) returns but being stripped off his power, he is forced to set up his new base in Mombasa, Kenya. He meets a RAW agent Kusum Devi Yadav (Amruta Subhash) who approaches Gaitonde for a special purpose. Gaitonde has no option but to dance to her tunes.

Also, there will be more scenes between Ganesh Gaitonde and Jojo (Surveen Chawla) this time and it would be interesting to watch their fun conversations. Elnaaz Norouzi too will have a meatier role this time as she plays a high-class escort Jamila who gives Gaitonde company in Kenya. Expect loads of intimate scenes between the two.

When, where and how to watch Sacred Games 2

Sacred Games 2 will start streaming from 12 AM IST, August 15 on Netflix. There will be eight episodes in total and all of them will be uploaded on the streaming platform in one go.

Netflix has made an exception for Sacred Games 2 as some of the previous India originals like Leila, Delhi Crime, Ghoul, Selection Day etc released around 12:30 PM on their premiere days.
