The plot twists and turns along the dark alleys of Mumbai, with Ganesh and Sartaj tightening their grip on each other and staking everything on victory, including the city itself.
The trailer is a tantalizing glimpse into the world of glamour, passion, violence and revenge, which will be fully revealed on July 06 when Sacred Games premieres exclusively on Netflix worldwide. The series is directed by Anurag Kashyap and Vikramaditya Motwane.
