As soon as Netflix announced that it will be making its way to India, fans of the online streaming service were ready with their credit cards. But when it finally was available, it caused widespread disappointment across the country as the content available was different and way too less as compared to other countries.

So in a way to compensate for the same, Netflix decided to go ahead and make content with Indian actors and storylines that would be relatable to the Indian audience. Its upcoming show ‘Sacred Games’ is an attempt at the same and its first look sure looks promising.

The first thing that got us intrigued is the fact that it is based on the critically-acclaimed best-selling novel of the same name by author Vikram Chandra and is being directed by Anurag Kashyap and Vikramaditya Motwane.

Our hopes were already at an all-time high and then we got to hear the next best news which is the cast of the show: Saif Ali Khan, Nawazuddin Siddiqui, and Radhika Apte.

And today, the Twitter account of Netflix India provided us with the first look at them.

Radhika’s serious and solemn expression and Nawaz’s unsettling smile sure look intriguing.

But its Saif’s character that has all our attention.

It’s clear that Saif is playing the role of a Sikh police offer and his blood splattered face is just what was needed to get the audience hooked. Good job Netflix!

The series would revolve around Inspector Sartaj Singh (Evidently Saif) and Ganesh Gaitonde, the most wanted gangster in India. Sartaj’s life is going downhill for a variety of reasons when an anonymous tip promises him an opportunity to capture Ganesh.

But of course, it isn’t going to be as easy as it seems. While the two indulge in a classic hide-and-seek game, it becomes clear that both of them are a part of something which is way larger than it appears to be. A story full of violence, betrayal, corruption, and politics awaits us.

On being asked about the release date by a user, Netflix just tweeted that they will keep us posted.

Soon, Aditya. We’ll keep you posted.
