Ajay Devgan The  Lucky Mascot Of  The Entertainment Business Will he Prove Lucky For Rudra?



Ajay Devgan

Ajay Devgan is  the  only A-lister in Bollywood who has remained  super-successful throughout the pandemic.

Tanhaji was  the  first bonafide  hit  of January 20. It starred Ajay Devgan who topped it with guest appearances  in Rohit Shetty’s Sooryavanshi and  now Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s Gangubai Kathiawadi. He did have a massive failure Bhuj The  Pride Of   India  in-between. But it doesn’t take  away from the shine of his  dazzling  track record.

Sanjay Leela Bhansali says the  extended cameo of  Karim Lala in Gangubai Kathiawadi required Devgan’s gravitas. “I needed  an  actor who immediate exudes a  certain gravitas, a certain kind of dignity and  strength  . Ajay has all of this. The minute he walks into  the film audiences are with him.Also, the fact that  he hasn’t changed one   bit over  the years since I worked with him last in Hum…Dil De Chuke Sanam  makes him a  rarity. He still has the wonder  habit of arriving one hour before shooting on the sets to get into character and  to  get familiar with his lines.”

Bhansali says  Alia Bhatt was  initially  intimidated  by  Ajay Devgan . “But Ajay  put her at ease  in no time  at all. He  is  a director’s delight and a considerate co-star. He  guided her through the tough dramatic lines that they  had together.”

 Next  up for Ajay Devgan is Applause Entertainment’s  gripping  Rudra The Edge Of Darkness where he  steps into the dark investigative  domain  of  a murder mystery. Rudra is  the Indian adaptation  of   the BBC series Luther  in which the  fantastic  Idris Elba   had  played Devgan’s role.

Says Ajay Devgan ,“My character in Rudra The Edge Of Darkness is possibly the greyest character you may have never witnessed before. This has been both challenging and inspiring for me, and I am elated to share the magic of Rudra with my fans across the world. I hope they fall in love with the show as intensely as we have worked towards the making of it. “Rudra – The Edge of Darkness is a compelling and highly intriguing story. Playing a cop on screen is not new to me, but this time the character is more intense, complex and dark.”
