Pankaj Tripathi Says He was Scared Before Playing Guruji in Sacred Games 2, Here’s Why

Pankaj Tripathi Says He was Scared Before Playing Guruji in Sacred Games 2, Here’s Why

Directed by Anurag Kashyap and Neeraj Ghaywan, Sacred Games 2 will premiere on Netflix on August 15.

Bollywood’s current favourite Pankaj Tripathi, who will next be seen playing a spiritual guru in the second season of Netflix’s Sacred Games, says it has been his toughest role till date.

Talking about it, he told Mid-Day, "I play a guru who has a massive following worldwide. That was the toughest part for me. I was scared, wondering how I could pull off the act. I have neither interacted with gurus, nor have I seen them from close quarters. So, I didn't have a point of reference. At home, no one listens to me. They don't follow my advice. So you can well imagine my dilemma."

"It was a difficult role because it wasn't easy to get that feeling. It was a new world that I had to explore. Every actor explores a new world with every new character he or she plays. While most characters are familiar to us, this one was challenging," the 42-year-old actor earlier told IANS.

"(But) the script, with its many layers, is fantastic. It made my task easier," said Tripathi, who has also delivered an 11-minute monologue in the blockbuster show’s forthcoming season.

Directed by Anurag Kashyap and Neeraj Ghaywan, Sacred Games 2 will premiere on Netflix on August 15. It stars Saif Ali Khan, Nawazuddin Siddiqui, Pankaj Tripathi, Kalki Koechlin, Luke Kenny, Ranvir Shorey and Shobhita Dhulipala in important roles.
