Vaishnavi Gavankar |Aug 15, 2019

"On the sets of Sacred Games, everyone worked relentlessly. Yet, we would crack jokes, banter about before moving on to the next scene", says Samir Kocchar.

Samir Kochhar will be reprising his role of SP Markand in Sacred Games 2 which brings back Saif Ali Khan and Nawazuddin Siddiqui in key roles.

"Working with Nawazuddin Siddiqui and Saif Ali Khan was a lifetime's experience for me. The passion and dedication they bring to the table motivate you to give your best. Nawaz is a tremendously cool guy and we had lots of fun on the set. He is a well-read person and we used to chat about a lot of other topics on the sets," Samir said.

Sharing the ambiance on the set during the second season's shoot, the television presenter turned actor revealed: "On the sets of Sacred Games, everyone worked relentlessly. Yet, we would crack jokes, banter about before moving on to the next scene.."


It was refreshing to see Samir in Sacred Games, as the actor was previously seen doing only light-hearted content. When asked how he was approached for the web series, Samir said, "When I met the makers for the first time, it was always that I would be there for two seasons where they'll establish my character in the first part. And the second season will have my character more deeply involved with what's happening in Mumbai."


Samir further added that it was a lot of fun working with Vikramaditya Motwane for season one and with Neeraj Ghaywan for season two.

He says, "It was also great working with wonderful co-actors like Saif (Ali Khan) and Radhika Apte. To see the show being appreciated worldwide, the kind of wait and anticipation that people have for the second season is remarkable. So, I'm very happy about the fact that I am a part of it, in whatever capacity I am in it. I am looking forward to the anticipation of coming live on August 15 in India and worldwide."

The actor also spoke about what fans can expect from the second season of the popular web series, which is based on author Vikram Chandra's novel of the same name.

"The second season will give us an insight into the premise that was set in season one. While the first season keeps you wondering what's going to happen next, the second season will solve all the mysteries that were set up in season one. People will enjoy what they see at this time. Although I can't reveal much about the story, all I can say is that expect the unexpected, it's bigger and better," he summed up Sacred Games season two, which is set to premiere on Netflix on August 15.
