Sacred Games is considered one of the finest webseries to have ever come out on any digital platform. After the humongous success of the first season globally, Netflix is now gearing up to premiere the second season of the series, which starts streaming from 15th August. When Anurag Kashyap made Sacred Games for Netflix, no one had thought that it would attain cult status in no time.

Today, almost everyone who consumes content on the net is waiting for Sacred Games 2 with bated breath. As the premiere date of the series is inching closer, the buzz around it is also increasing. The makers are well aware of the sky-high expectations that the audience has from Sacred Games 2 and that has sort of started mounting some pressure on the makers, it seems.

“I feel the pressure is more this time. When we started the first season, we had no idea of the impact we were going to create. So, we could do just what we wanted to do,” says director Anurag Kashyap. “Now it has become a giant. We feel like, one shouldn’t do something so big – build a fan-following that hold so much expectation that in the second season, it becomes difficult to handle! Just joking! Of course, we love the fact that we made the show exactly as we wanted. So, I am under pressure but I am happy!” adds the filmmaker.
