Which character did Elnaaz Norouzi play in Sacred Games?

Nourouzi played the character of Jamila in season one of Game of Thrones. In season one, Jamila, an aspiring Bollywood actress, was discovered to have ties to gangster Ganesh Gaitonde. Season two delves deeply into Gaitonde’s past, revealing that Jamila was once the crime lord’s mistress.

Elnaaz Norouzi, who plays Jamila/Zoya, told India Today about her character’s relationship with Gaitonde, saying, “Jamila is a fighter.”

She added – “She met Gaitonde when he was vulnerable and in need of help. She needed someone at the same time. They happened to meet at the same time. They assist one another. Jamila’s transformation into Zoya has been amazing. These two characters are diametrically opposed. It was a pleasure to play them as an actor.”
