There's more to Ganesh Gaitonde's (Nawazuddin Siddiuqui) story, which will be explored in the second season of popular web-series Sacred Games. The trailer of the show's second season dropped on the Internet today and it will keep you hooked till the very end. Inspector Sartaj Singh (Saif Ali Khan) learns that notorious gangster Ganesh Gaitonde is dead at the end of the first season after a series of bizarre events. Sartaj is now tasked with putting together pieces of a puzzle, which Ganesh Gaitonde has left behind to figure out the details of the 'war' which is on the doorstep. In a brief segment, Ganesh Gaitonde confesses that he underestimated 'the game' and says it's bigger than anyone including himself.
New characters Kalki Koechlin, Pankaj Tripathi and Ranvir Shorey also appear in the trailer but for now, it appears that the main story will be told through Gaitonde's perspective and Sartaj's investigation.
