“I look forward to working with Ajay Devgn after a long time. He has been a fantastic co-star to me in many films. As an actor, I believe in working on projects that would let me explore something new and engage me as a viewer as well. This series is a fresh take on the quintessential cop drama with a grey overtone, something which has not been explored in the Indian context before. With the resounding success of the OTT space, I am charged up for my digital debut with this one,” says Esha.
Esha Deol was last seen in the 2019 short film Cakewalk. She has earlier worked with Ajay in films such as Main Aisa Hi Hoon, LOC Kargil and Yuva.
“With Esha Deol Takhtani joining the star cast of Rudra: The Edge of Darkness we are certain that her presence will take the series a notch higher and add more spark to the story. Building on the long-standing relationship , we are looking forward to the creation of this remarkable series,” said Sameer Nair, CEO, Applause Entertainment, producers of the Hotstar Specials series in association with BBC Studios India.
