Earlier, Delhi BJP MLA from Rajouri Garden had slammed the makers of Sacred Games 2 for hurting his religious sentiment. Sirsa was referring to a scene from the web series on Netflix, where the character of Sartaj Singh played by Saif Ali Khan throws away his Kada. Sirsa had Tweeted 'I wonder why Bollywood continues to disrespect our religious symbols! Anurag Kashyap deliberatly puts this scene in #SacredGamesS2 where Saif Ali Khan throws his Kada in sea! A KADA is not an ordinary ornament. It’s the pride of Sikhs & a blessing of Guru Sahib @NetflixIndia @ANI'
