Saif Ali Khan's look from the upcoming Netflix presentation, Sacred Games, captures the intensity and darkness that will drive Anurag Kashyap's first venture into web series. The actor, alongwith Radhika Apte and Nawazuddin Siddiqui, features prominently in the three stills released by its makers.

Khan appears with a turban as the Sikh police officer, Sartaj Singh. The actor sports bloodied hands, weary look and seems to be pursuing criminals in what looks like an alley behind a building.

His co-star Radhika Apte seems to have shed her very rustic look from Pad Man.

The villain of the piece will be played by Nawazuddin Siddiqui's character, Ganesh Gaitonde. The first look features Siddiqui dressed to the nines in a kurta, while he is staring at himself in the mirror.

Sacred Games is based on Vikram Chandra's best selling novel of the same name. Directed by Vikramaditya Motwane and Anurag Kashyap, the eight episode long series will revolve around Sartaj Singh (Saif Ali Khan), a cynical, wisened police officer in Mumbai out to capture Ganesh Gaitonde (Siddiqui), a crime lord.

The film will mark the debuts of Saif Ali Khan and Anurag Kashyap on the digital platform. While Radhika Apte, Motwane and Siddiqui have already cut their teeth in the space of online films, this will mark a major star driven project for Netflix.
