Though audiences still cannot stop raving about Gaitonde, his character from the super-hit Netflix show Sacred Games. Nawaz was spectacular as gangster Ganesh Gaitonde. Nawazuddin Siddiqui says he is done with working in web series. Confirming that he is a part of Sacred Games 2, Nawaz said, “I will only do the second season of Sacred Games. I don’t want to do more web series.”
Sacred Games also had Saif Ali Khan, Radhika Apte and Pankaj Tripathi. However, Nawaz’s style as a gangster, his dialogues and the way he gave himself away to play Gaitonde was commendable.
The actor says Sacred Games would have been ruined had it released as a film. “It came out because critics had no say in it. If it was released as a movie, they would’ve ruined it, just the way they are ruining films. That’s why Netflix is getting so big,” he said.
He further added “Main ab saari romantic filmen romantic role kar raha hoon. Aaj kal mera phase chal raha hai romantic filmon ka. 4-5 filmen hai aise. (I’m only doing romantic roles now. Currently, it’s my phase going on of doing romantic films. I have 4-5 such films lined up.)”
