When asked the reason behind it, Anurag said in Hindi, “It’s written, but we’re figuring out the next steps. Netflix was supposed to do it earlier, but they are not doing it any more. The project had been green-lit, but a lot has changed since then on streaming. Lots of projects have stalled, like Paatal Lok season two…”
The filmmaker said that all of this happened after the Tandav controversy, which led to multiple police complaints against Ali Abbas Zafar and the star cast of the series. Anurag further revealed, “There have been leadership changes and policy changes at streaming companies. There was a show called Gormint, which never came out. A lot has changed, and we’ve suffered because of it, on health and otherwise."
Anurag also said that the third season of Sacred Games season 3 didn't take off. He said in Hindi, “A season three was supposed to come out, but they shut it down, Netflix would know why.”
On the work front, Anurag Kashyap recently directed Almost Pyaar With DJ Mohabbat.
