It will not be an exaggeration to say that Sacred Games by Netflix changed the entire landscape of the digital medium in India. The massive success of the thriller series proved that there is a huge audience for consuming web content in India, provided they get engaging, unique and well-told stories on their platter. Buoyed up by the success of Sacred Games, several new players forayed into the digital space, bringing about a revolution.

As mentioned above that the first season of Sacred Games emerged as a humongous success for the makers. Since the first season was such a huge hit, it was sort of obvious for them to pump in more funds in the production of the second season, and the same has happened.

According to reports, Saif Ali Khan, Nawazuddin Siddiqui and Pankaj Tripathi starrer Sacred Games 2 has been produced on a staggering budget of ₹ 100 crore. If reports are true, then Sacred Games 2 could easily be called the most expensive web-series to have ever been produced in India.

A leading entertainment portal reveals, “Revealing the details, an industry insider says that while usually, each episode of an original could cost between Rs. 3- 4 cr with a total budget around the vicinity of Rs. 50 cr, Netflix has gone above and beyond for season 2.”

After the unprecedented success of the first season, the makers wanted that the second season of Sacred Games should up the first in terms of the complexity, which naturally will take the production cost up.

Directed by renowned filmmakers Anurag Kashyap and Vikramaditya Motwane, Sacred Games 2 is set for its grand premiere on 15th August. The season is highly anticipated not only in India but all across the world also.
