Anurag Kashyap reveals why Netflix shut down 'Sacred Games 3', says ‘OTT ki himmat nahi hai, Tandav ke baad dar gaye hain’


Anurag Kashyap, who is gearing up for the release of his film Almost Pyaar With DJ Mohabbat, has finally spoken about his much-hyped web show Sacred Games. The filmmaker revealed why there won't be a third season of Saif Ali Khan and Nawazuddin Siddiqui's show. 

When asked about making explosive content for the OTT space, Anurag told, "I wanted to do a lot of work, in fact I have worked on it to. But OTT ki aaj ke date me himmat nahi hai. Tandav ke baad sab dar gaye hain( OTT doesn't have the courage nowadays. Everyone is scared since Tandav)." "Now, I am not interested in the (kind of work on) OTT where I am not allowed to use surnames for characters, I am not allowed to show stuff as they exist. I cannot do this hygienic work. I will not do it. If I cannot keep things real, I will rather not do it," he added.

Anurag said that instead of doing the "hygienic stuff" for OTT, just because everyone else is doing it, he prefers to do the kind of work that he enjoys. In the interview, he also talked about coming on board for Sacred Games. He said that someone had told the producers that "Anurag Kashyap does not attract female audience", and that is why initially they did not want him on the team. However, later Vikramaditya invited him to join and he did. The filmmaker added that the third season of the show, and only Netflix knows the reason why it was cancelled.

Released on Prime Video, Tandav had become massively controversial over one scene involving actor Mohammed Zeeshan Ayyub. Multiple court cases were filed against the cast and crew, citing disruption of religious harmony.
