Anurag Kashyap, the most influential Indian filmmaker of recent times, has been credited as a director, producer, writer and also as actor, in more than 40 films. His two films, Gangs of Wasseypur and Ugly, were presented at the Directors’ Fortnight. He is the recipient of several accolades, including four Filmfare Awards. For his contributions to film, the Government of France awarded him the Ordre des Arts et des Lettres in 2013.
On Sunday, Kashyap shared a screenshot on his Instagram handle of a fake casting call for Sacred Games season 3. Sharing that post he asked people to be aware of such fake casting calls and he also said he is going to fill an F.I.R against that person who runs that account, then that person immediately deactivated his account. He also posted the screenshots and wrote the caption, “This guy rajbeer-casting is a scamster. Please report. There is no third part of Sacred Games 3. I will file an FIR against this man.” Sharing this post in his Instagram story too, he wrote, Please beware of this scam, there is no third season of Sacred Games happening.——-

The fake story says that the show requires female actors of varying ages, and funnily adds with each one that they must be okay with “bold scenes”. Kashyap’s projects are known for dark themes and are gritty and realistic in nature. A crime thriller series, Sacred Games was based on the Vikram Chandra novel of the same name. Nawazuddin Siddiqui, one of the stars of the show, has said that there will not be a third season.
