All this while we rejoiced the foreign film or series on the platforms like Netflix and Amazon, which are the largest potential international markets for the streaming service. Now we have our original series from India for the first time. Netflix's first original series from India, crime thriller ‘Sacred Games,’ made its debut last Friday and it received overwhelming response all over. While the critics poured in positive reviews, it has also caught the fancy of our B-town and whoever happens to watch it have only heaped praises on the series starring Saif Ali Khan, Nawazuddin Siddiqui, Radhika Apte. Critics lapped up the series in advance of its release on Friday, highlighting it as a fresh take on the crime genre and commended Saif Ali Khan’s performance as a Sikh cop in the Mumbai police force named Sartaj Singh.
Now B-town celebs like Bipasha Basu, Sonam Kapoor, Sujoy Ghosh, Gurmeet Choudhary, Athiya Shetty, Shruti Seth, Vir Das, Neeraj Ghayawan and others are in awe of the series from Phantom Films. Check out the reaction of our B-town celebs on the series here:
