Game of books
Even as the hype around Sacred Games’ debut on Netflix continues to create ripples, courtesy a well-planned thread of promotional events, of course, ably backed by the star power acting in the series, the original book by Vikram Chandra seems to have found plenty of takers as well. And as the buzz on social media continues, we picked up one particular juicy anecdote that took us back to the original jacket of the book. Turns out city based artist Jaideep Mehrotra (inset) created the artwork for it. He commented on the new flick, giving it a double thumbs up. Close on the heels of this discovery, this diarist learnt that the publishers of the book have also decided to publish (or shall we say, re-publish?) the same title in two parts using interesting cover artwork directly from the hit series.
