Bad news for Sacred Games fans! Season 2 to be pulled of in the wake of #MeToo movement

This might come as a bad news for all the Sacred Games lovers out there, as video-streaming giant Netflix is evaluating its options for renewing the web series for its season 2. The decision is being made in the light of sexual harassment controversy surround Phantom Films co-founder Vikas Bahl and also Sacred Games writer Varun Grover. Kashyap and Motwane had helmed the highly acclaimed first season of "Sacred Games" which had Varun Grover as one of its writers.

Amid speculations regarding the show's future, Netflix said in a statement, "At this time we are evaluating options on the path forward."

Last year, a woman employee at Phantom Films, which had Vikas Bahl as one of the partners along side Kashyap, Motwane and Madhu Mantena, had alleged that Bahl behaved inappropriately with her during a trip to Goa in 2015.
