“My Most Challenging Role,” Says Ajay Devgan On His  Digital Debut On 5 March



Ajay Devgan

Bigscreen star Ajay Devgan is  all set for his OTT premiere as  his 6-part series Rudra, produced  by Applause Entertainment, begins streamin on March 5. The  series features him as the ruthless investigative  officer Rudraveer Singh who believes he is  better than his colleagues  for his criminal  mind.

The trailer is dark and intense, the  plot with Raashii Khanna pitching in with an interestingly grey antagonist’s  character ,seems to  have a gripping momentum, what with Devgan giving the  dark series a hefty  grey hue.

Devgan says he is very excited  about his digital debut.  “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.”

Esha Deol who co-starred with Ajay Devgan  as his wife in Harry  Baweja’s  Main Aisa Hi  Hoon 17  years  ago, returns to play  his troubled wife again in Rudra. This couple is facing problems. But then who isn’t, in this  series on  dark desires and darker designs?

Director Rajesh Mapuskar said, “Rudra spins a darker and grimmer tale  than the usual cop and crime drama.  The psyche of criminal minds is explored unusually with a hero who is quite dark himself, all through his pursuit of the truth. It was absorbing and enthralling to make and i hope it feels like that in the viewing.”

Sameer Nair, CEO, Applause Entertainment, said, “We are truly excited to be part of Ajay Devgn’s digital debut at such an ambitious scale with Rudra – The Edge Of Darkness.  It’s been a terrific experience working on this unique narrative together with an amazing cast, crew and our production partners, BBC Studios. At Applause, we believe in the power of stories and storytelling,  and with Rudra, we take forward our creative partnership with industry leader Disney+ Hotstar, and hope to continue entertaining audiences across the globe.”
