Having essayed the role of crime master Ganesh Gaitonde in the Netflix series Sacred Games, stellar actor Nawazuddin Siddiqui is all set to make the role even more intriguing with a new twist in season 2. Taking to his Instagram account today, the actor shared a grim poster of his which gives a pictorial insight into his dark character.
Looking dapper in a dark check suit with a red tie, Nawazuddin stands before a mandala design in the backdrop as he looks straight into the camera. He captioned the post as, “Pichli baar kya bola tha Ganesh bhai ko? Aukaaat! (What did you say to Ganesh bhai last time? Standard?),” (sic) along with hashtag Ganesh Gaitonde 2.0.
