‘Sacred Games’ story will end after season 2, but ‘should things go on we’ll make things up,’ says Vikramaditya Motwane
At the end of the second season of Netflix’s Sacred Games, showrunner Vikramaditya Motwane will be faced with the same problem that David Benioff and DB Weiss were confronted by on Game of Thrones. The show will have concluded the plot of author Vikram Chandra’s source novel. So what does one do when one runs out of story? “You make your own,” he said.
Motwane acknowledged the Game of Thrones strategy, which saw showrunners Benioff and Weiss divert from author George RR Martin’s novels even before the show had overtaken the books. “There’s so much that we’ve done which is (not in the book),” Motwane told Hindustan Times, providing the example of actor Kalki Koechlin’s character, who is a brand new creation.
Actor Saif Ali Khan, who plays the cop Sartaj Singh in Sacred Games, had said in an earlier interview that he isn’t sure about where the show will go post season two. “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,” he’d told PTI.
And Motwane agreed. “Should things go on we’ll make things up,” he told HT. The filmmaker has relinquished his position as co-director this season in favour of focusing his attention singularly on running the show. “Vikram was consumed by Sacred Games for more than two years,” said executive producer and co-director Anurag Kashyap, welcoming Motwane’s decision.
The hotly anticipated second season of the show will be available to stream on Netflix on August 15, following a year of fevered anticipation after a breakout first season. Motwane said that while he was ‘pleasantly surprised’ by how well season one was received, he wasn’t necessarily ‘surprised’. “The ambition was always there. We wanted this show to be huge and we wanted this show to break out,” he said. “We set out with a lot of ambition in season one when we got Nawaz and we got Saif. This was the first time we were using legit movie stars to be in a series.”
Motwane said that Sacred Games’ success ‘escalated the optics for streaming shows’. “The more shows that there are the better it is for the industry,” he added, “The writers are busy, if the writers are busy, the actors are busy.”

The Elephant Whisperer: The Heartwarming Story of a Couple and Their Orphaned Elephant!
In a world where we are often disconnected from nature and the creatures that inhabit it, “The Elephant Whisperers” brings us closer to the heart of one of the most intelligent and majestic animals on earth – the elephant. This documentary, which won the Oscar for Best Documentary in 2023, follows the story of Bomman and Belli, an indigenous couple who become the surrogate parents to an orphaned baby elephant named Raghu.
Set in the breathtakingly beautiful Mudumalai National Park in Tamil Nadu, India, the film takes us on a journey through the wilderness, showing us the natural beauty of the location and the life of the tribal people who live in harmony with nature. From the very beginning, we are captivated by the bond that develops between Bomman, Belli, and Raghu.
When Raghu is first found by the couple, he is a fragile, injured infant who is barely clinging to life. Bomman and Belli take on the responsibility of caring for him, nursing him back to health with love, patience, and a deep understanding of his needs. As the weeks go by, Raghu thrives under their care, becoming a healthy and mischievous juvenile who delights into playing with his human parents and exploring the forest around them.
The film captures the incredible intelligence and emotional depth of elephants, showing us how Raghu communicates with Bomman and Belli through a range of sounds and body language. We see how the couple responds to his needs, anticipating his every move and showering him with love and attention. The bond between them is truly heartwarming, and we can’t help but be moved by the way they care for Raghu.
But “The Elephant Whisperers” is more than just a story of a couple and their pet elephant. It is a celebration of the beauty and richness of the natural world, and a reminder of our duty to protect and preserve it. Through stunning cinematography and insightful commentary, the film shows us the interconnectedness of all life and the importance of living in harmony with the world around us.
The film also raises important questions about the conservation of elephants in India and the threats they face from habitat loss, poaching, and human-elephant conflict. It is a call to action for all of us to take responsibility for the welfare of these magnificent creatures and to work towards a future where they can thrive in their natural habitats.
