Sacred Games 2 is in and has managed once again to turn all heads around. Doubling its fan base, the second season has definitely brought in a lot of add-ons to checkout. Elnaaz Norouzi has joined the series and recently one of her steamy sessions with the star of the show, Nawazuddin Siddiqui has gone quite popular. Talking on the same Elnaaz calls it: “It was very tough for me.”
Elnaaz Norouzi also mentioned the dilemma, she had in mind regarding these steamy scenes when she first heard about them.
With the series all set to amp up the entertainment quotient with a number of twists and turns included along with the new faces, there has certainly been place for some of the older yet prominent characters as was a part of the series. Apart from Pankaj Tripathi and Surveen Chawla, Elnaaz Norouzi will also be portraying the dual characters of Jamila and Zoya for the current season.
It was challenging for the actress to play Jamila, who is vulnerable and naive and then switch to Zoya, who holds a powerful and manipulative character.
In conversation with a famous media platform, Elnaaz Norouzi said, “Jameela is a fighter. She met Gaitonde when he was vulnerable, when he needed someone. At the same time she also needed someone. They met at the same time. They help each other. Not only did he help her but she was also there for him. Yeah it’s been great how Jameela grows into Zoya. Both these characters are very different from each other. It was fun to play as them as an actor. We (Nawaz and Elnaaz) had a couple of fun scenes together and I can’t wait to see them.” Elnaaz has also filmed a series of steamy scenes for the current season of the series and the actress even mentioned that she wouldn’t have been able to pull them off without Anurag Kashyap being in charge.
She further added, “It was very tough for me because I haven’t done such things before. The whole dilemma around it when I was sitting with Anurag sir was how am I going to do this. He sat with me through every scene and helped me throughout the whole thing. Had he not been there I wouldn’t be confident enough to do it with any other director. I would like to thank him for this. We had a great time and a great team who was very helpful during the filming of the said scenes.”
Nawazuddin Siddiqui also mentioned the challenges of shooting intimate scenes with his co-stars, saying, “It was imperative for me to make my co-star comfortable during the intimate scenes. One has to place trust on you in order to bring out natural and honest performances. The moment that comfort and trust is not there, it reflects on the scene.”
