Ajay Devgn all set for his digital debut with ‘Rudra- The Edge of Darkness’

Mumbai: Bollywood action star Ajay Devgn is all set to make his OTT debut with a crime-drama series titled Rudra – The Edge of Darkness.

The series is the Hindi remake of the popular British show– Luther. It will be produced by Applause Entertainment in association with BBC Studios India.

Commenting on his web debut the 52-years old actor said, “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.”

Rudra – The Edge of Darkness is one of our biggest shows to date and we are very excited to have Ajay Devgn play the lead. He truly has the fiery intensity and persona required to play this iconic character. With Disney+ Hotstar VIP we have built a strong foundation and are looking forward to creating this global series. We work very closely with BBC Studios to bring the best stories to Indian audiences and Rudra is a brilliant reimagination of an iconic global format”, Sameer Nair, CEO, Applause Entertainment told media.

The production of this Hotstar Specials series will soon commence and will be shot across the enchanting landscapes of Mumbai.

Rudra – The Edge of Darkness will be telecast on Disney+ Hotstar VIP and Disney+ Hotstar Premium.

Ajay confirmed this news with a tweet that reads,
“Happy to announce the crime thriller of the year Hotstar Specials ‘Rudra – The Edge Of Darkness’. This one’s going to be ‘killer’.  @DisneyplusHSVIP #DebutDobara #Rudra @ApplauseSocial @BBCStudiosIndia @nairsameer
