We’ve heard it before that Saif Ali Khan was reportedly in talks with Tubelight director Kabir Khan to star in his upcoming Amazon original series – The Forgotten Army. But now, as per latest reports, the actor has been approached by Netflix for yet another web series.
The Netflix original will be an adaptation of the novel ‘The Secret Game: A Wartime Story of Courage, Change, and Basketball’s Lost Triumph’ written by Scott Ellsworth.

It’s a story of courage and determination.
As per media reports, Saif has been approached to play the role of Coach McClendon who had originally trained the boys of the North Carolina College for the Negroes’ basketball team. However, no official announcement has been made as yet with regards to this series.
So, what do you think? Will Saif say yes to his Phantom director Kabir Khan or will he slam dunk his way into the Netflix series? Watch this space.
