- Saif Ali Khan had this about Sacred Games Season 3
The one show that left the entire nation dumb-struck on the edge of their couches is Saif Ali Khan and Nawazuddin Siddiqui starrer Sacred Games. Netflix India’s thriller series Sacred Games was based on a novel of the same name written by Vikram Chandra in 2006. While season two broke all the records, it ended on an open note. It left the fans hoping for a third season. So, here is everything you need to know so far about Sacred Games season 3 — release date — cast and story, the confirmations and the theories. Stay tuned!
The second season certainly tied up a few loose ends left after season one. Firstly, we learned why Ganesh Gaitonde (Nawazuddin Siddiqui) killed Jojo (Surveen Chawla). Secondly, why Ganesh killed himself. We also learned Gaitonde had been manipulated by Guru Ji (Pankaj Tripathi) for 20 years.
Sacred Games season 2 focused on the story of police detective Sartaj Singh (played by Saif Ali Khan) and how he tried to prevent a nuclear attack on Mumbai. But then, fans never came to know if he succeeded or not.
So could there be another season of the show? Hell yes. We need to know.
Sacred Games Season 3 — Release Date
Following the same formula as its previous seasons:
Considering, Sacred Games Season 1 came out in July 2018 and 2 was released on Independence Day 2019. Let’s wait until the mid-September 2020 before we start to worry!
Sacred Games Season 3 — The Plot
The second season ended on a cliffhanger, where Sartaj Singh (Saif Ali Khan) had three attempts to crack the code and stop the bomb. As he entered the code for the third time, the screen turned black and left viewers pulling their hair out in intrigue.
The explosive ending left the door open for the story to go on.
Sacred Games might have ended with the novel, but a third season of the crime thriller is definitely not a far cry. Moreover, while season 2 answered several fan questions but it gave birth to a million new ones.
One of the main questions revolves around how Yadav Tai and Anjali Mathur were connected?
When Sartaj goes to interview ex-IB officer KD Yadav (Yadav Tai), he finds her suffering from mental issues arising from a bullet injury to the head. However, when Sartaj mentions Anjali Mathur, it triggers something disturbing in KD Yadav’s memory. She starts crying and pointedly says ‘Bloody Mathur’.
We already know that KD Yadav and her husband knew Anjali as a kid. Several fans have also speculated that Yadav had an affair with Anjali’s dad, especially in view of her stony reaction to seeing him murdered.
So to clear this mess, there needs to be a Sacred Games season 3.
Sartaj and Shahid Khan are brothers
Shahid Khan’s mother is another character whose brain is playing funny in the series. She was extremely old, frail and likely suffering from Alzheimer’s disease. Khan’s mother has a flashback scene where she travels back to the time partition took place.
The old woman recounts the moments when she was separated from her family which was forced to leave the country. It then cuts to a scene where Sartaj’s mother is looking at a family photo featuring the same woman.
This means Shahid and Sartaj are cousins, something that really can’t be avoided. However, it’s also possible that this connection exists as another means to depict how everyone is connected, according to the theory by Guruji’s father.
Saif Ali Khan had said about the Season 3 —
“This story ends at the end of this season. So I don’t know if they will extend it. But there is always scope for more.”
The series had also received some nominations in the drama category for the International Emmy Awards. However, right now the fans are more excited than ever. While Sacred Games Season 2 is streaming on Netflix, fans across the country are now eagerly anticipating a season 3.
