Vastavam web: Filmmakers Anurag Kashyap and Vikramaditya Motwane will be working on two parallel stories in the upcoming Netflix series ‘Sacred Games’.Netflix’s first India-set original series ‘Sacred Games’ is based on author Vikram Chandra’s best-selling novel of the same name.Erik Barmack, vice president of international original series at Netflix, was in conversation with journalist Anupama Chopra at a session in the ongoing Jio MAMI 19th Mumbai Film Festival.”We have Nawaz in the ’80s and we have a more present story. All are shot in practical locations in Mumbai. We have these great film actors in a tight storytelling, that does feel like ‘Narcos’, in the richness of the shoot and complexity,” he added.
The series, shot on real locations in Mumbai, will delve into the city’s intricate web of organised crime, corruption, politics and espionage.One is on the Gaitonde storyline, the other on Sartaj. Of course they collide (eventually).” “If you think of the conventional storytelling and where TV was 15 years ago, the idea that you can do these things in different time periods with anti-hero and complex characters is quite amazing. It (the show) is going to be amazing for us globally,” he added.”When he read the scripts and saw what we were doing, he was very interested. That’s true also for Radhika Apte and other cast members.”
