Ajay Devgn has given us some of the biggest Bollywood hits of all time and now he is all set to make his debut on the OTT platform with his first-ever crime-drama web series titled, Rudra – The Edge Of Darkness. This series is the official remake of the much-loved British web series titled, Luther.
Rudra – The Edge Of Darkness will be directed by Rajesh Mapuskar and we will get to see Ajay Devgn play the role of a cop. This Hotstar Specials series will soon be going into production and will be shot across the iconic locations of Mumbai. The makers dropped the first look on Tuesday and the actor took to his social media handle to express his excitement about the project.
My attempt has always been to tell unique stories and work with good talent. The idea is to raise the bar of entertainment in India. The digital world excites me, and I am looking forward to working with Applause and BBC to bring this series to life on Disney+ Hotstar VIP. Rudra – The Edge of Darkness is a compelling and highly intriguing story and I can’t wait to begin this new journey! Playing a cop on screen is not new to me, but this time the character is more intense, complex and dark. What drew me most to his persona, is that he is possibly the greyest character you may come across in recent times.
