The year 2018 saw #MeToo movement which took down many known celebrities who were involved in harassment against women. One such name came up was Vikas Bahl of Phantom Films. This controversy along with many other issues led to the disbandment of Phantom Films which was run by Vikramaditya Motwane, Anurag Kashyap, Madhu Mantena and Vikas Bahl. But, even after that, Vikramaditya and Anurag have collaborated on Sacred Games 2 and will continue to do so.
Vikramaditya Motwane said that he has known Anurag Kashyap for 25 years now. They are absolutely comfortable with each other and on occasions, would want to kill each other too over creative differences. The filmmaker said that the Phantom story may be over but he will continue to collaborate with Anurag. Both Kashyap and Motwane co-directed the first season of the show.
Talking about Sacred Games 2 lead Saif Ali Khan, Vikramaditya Motwane said that he gets caught up in the zone so much that hours later he will remember the close up shot and ask if he could reshoot it. Vikramaditya quipped that he would have to ask Saif to go back to sleep since it’s too late in the night and he need not worry. The filmmaker said that he can be so funny and get excited like a child.
Sacred Games 2 will begin streaming on August 15.
