Back in April, Ajay Devgn teased a surprise announcement on his social media with a video and later unveiled his digital debut project.
Ajay announced his digital debut with a crime thriller show titled ‘Rudra - The Edge Of Darkness’ and also shared the first poster of the series. Reportedly, Rudra is the official adaptation of the British classic titled ‘Luther’ that starred Idris Elba in the original.
And now reports suggest that Ajay Devgn has found the leading lady for his show. South actress Raashii Khanna has been roped in as the female lead and will be seen in the role of a serial killer. The actress will step into Ruth Wilson's shoes, who was a part of the original series.
A Bollywood Hungama report also states that the series, produced by Applause Entertainment in association with BBC Studios India will go on floors on July 21, 2021.
After playing iconic cop roles through his career in Bollywood, actor Ajay Devgn will now be seen in an intense and gritty new cop avatar as he makes his grand entry into the digital space with his first-ever crime-drama series Rudra - The Edge of Darkness, coming soon on Disney+ Hotstar VIP.
Meanwhile, Raashii will also be seen in Raj and DK's upcoming web series with Shahid Kapoor and Vijay Sethupathi.
The Hotstar Specials series will soon be going into production and will be shot across iconic locales of Mumbai. An engaging and dark new take on cop stories, combined with a unique storytelling format and powerful characters will make Rudra - The Edge of Darkness a must-watch for fans of thrillers and crime-dramas.
