In a recent video that was released by Netflix India, we can see actor Pankaj Tripathi giving some mock auditions for different characters of the popular web series named “Sacred Games.”

Pankaj’s mock auditions will really make you laugh out a lot.

If we take a close look into the mock audition clip, we can see Pankaj Tripathi trying his luck with Ganesh Gaitonde, who is one of the three main characters of the latest season of the show Sacred Games.

Pankaj Tripathi also mocked Gaitonde’s aide Bunty and lastly Guruji that he played in the new series, which gets its story from Vikram Chandra’s novel that too carries the similar name.

Sacred Games has received a lot of criticism several times for the reason that it produces cuss words-infused dialogues.

Tripathi earlier dismissed the role of Gaitonde and this role is now being played by Nawazuddin Siddiqui at the moment. The character of Bunty was played by Jatin Sarna and he played it for the same reasons.

After Pankaj Tripathi was almost certain of leaving the audition room, he was given the role of Guruji, which was introduced briefly in the first season. But, his character caught the attention of the viewers in the second season.

Pankaj Tripathi was seen chanting “Aham Brahmasmi”, and he was set out to deliver the dialogues of Guruji in the show.

The second season of the Sacred Games was aired on Netflix and it started on August 15, 2019 and it really received a huge response from the critics. In the show, Bollywood actor Saif Ali Khan plays the role of Sartaj Singh.

But, it was Nawazuddin Siddiqui and Pankaj Tripathi, who were praised for their amazing performances.

Saibal Chatterjee, a film critic said, “Nawazuddin Siddiqui and Saif Ali Khan continue to complement each other brilliantly in the follow-up… Pankaj Tripathi is outstanding.”
