Sacred Games actor Kubbra Sait will soon be heading to New York to represent the Netflix original at the International Emmys. Sacred Games has been nominated at the 2019 International Emmy Awards in the category of Best Drama. The award function will take place on 25 November.
Kubbra played the role of a transgender character Cuckoo in the first season of the show. She received huge praise for her performance.
Ahead of her trip, Kubbra says she feels confident and hopes for a great victory.
“I am putting it out there in the universe everyday that we are coming back with the winning trophy. For me it is the excitement of representing a show that has created a universal reach. Everybody has been moved, has been touched, and felt the exhilaration of being part of this incredible show across the world.”Kubbra Sait, Actor
In some ways, Kubbra’s character was a milestone in onscreen representation of marginalised communities. Speaking about that she told IANS,
“Cuckoo has been a character that finally portrays the third gender with respect, with love, with pride and I don’t think that’s an ordinary feat at all. I am indebted to the writer who made the character standout so beautifully. It wouldn’t have been possible without the writing. The incredible team and the way Anurag believed that a girl could play it just amazing,”Kubbra Sait
Both seasons of Sacred Games are streaming on Netflix.
