Kubbra Sait won our hearts with her small but very impactful role in Sacred Games. Her role has become a talking point on the internet and the fans of the series are still wondering if she really is a transgender in real life or not. Kubbra played the character with so much conviction that we fell in love with Cuckoo.
Kubbra was asked about her role in the series by a leading daily and she said, That according to me is their appreciation. I am a woman who likes men, yet, I have managed to convince the world that I have a willy. I played the character with the same honesty that I played a tree when I was a six-year-old, in a school play.”
Well, yes she played the character with sheer honesty and bought put human side of Cuckoo in front of the audience. She said, “The character made a passing reference in the book. But, once they saw how it was being played out, they wrote more scenes for me. Most of what we shot was retained. Showcasing Kukoo’s humanity was important.”
In an earlier interview with a leading Daily, Kubbra told how things went on sets and how was her experience while shooting for the series. “He (Anurag Kashyap, co-director of Sacred Games) made me do the scene seven times- every time after the scene, he’d come to me and say I am making you do this so many times, sorry haan. Just one more time, ek aur baar, one more and I am going again, don’t hate me, I know you hate me, don’t hate me.”
