Bollywood actor Saif Ali Khan went through a physical transformation for Sacred Games Season 2, displayed the change in his story graph. With the second season, Saif will be back in the web series as Police Officer Sartaj Singh, who got trapped in a race against time to save the city of Mumbai from a terror attack.
Saif said, “Even though in the book, Sartaj Singh is a fit, well-dressed guy, when the series starts, he is in a bad place and is someone who doesn’t really care about what he looks like. So it was fine for him to be a bit overweight.”
“But now that the action is picking up, I thought we should bring him up to what he actually is like – he is eating less and taking more drugs, which would naturally lead to a bit of weight loss and why he’s looking leaner,” added the Bollywood actor.
Inquired what he did to get in shape, Said replied that “the physical preparation involved going to the gym and eating right for the role. Playing a Sardar cop, you have to look the part.”
Sacred Games Season 2 will be released on August 15, starring Nawazuddin Siddiqui, Ranvir Shorey, Luke Kenny, Kalki Koechlin, and Shobita Dhulipala among others.
