Saif Ali Khan on Sacred Games Controversy: Somebody might kill you if criticise the government in India

Amid all the outrage over Sacred Games, Saif Ali Khan has recently been outspoken in an interview. Saif Ali Khan, who plays the role of Sartaj Singh in the original series, said that he feels one could get killed in India for simply giving voice to their opinions.

“If you date someone from the wrong caste, somebody will kill you in some parts of India. That’s just the way it is. I don’t know how much you can criticise your government in India, somebody might kill you,” Saif said to The Quint.

“It will be deeply frustrating if something happens to the show. If someone says you can’t air this or if Netflix is discontinued. Then that will be my turn to be outraged,” Saif added.

Saif Ali Khan, Nawazuddin Siddiqui and Radhika Apte’s web-series Sacred Games has been getting a lot of criticism for using bad language, graphic content and unfiltered take on Indian politics.

In fact, a member of Congress party filed a petition against the show for defaming late former PM Rajiv Gandhi. Reportedly, Rajiv Gandhi’s son Rahul Gandhi responded to the controversy by tweeting, “Father lived and died in the service of India. The views of a character on a fictional web series can never change that.”
