After playing iconic cop roles through his career in Bollywood, actor Ajay Devgn will now be seen in an intense and gritty new copy 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. The Hotstar Specials series will soon be going into production and will be shot across iconic locales in 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. Produced by Applause Entertainment in association with BBC Studios India, the series reimagines the iconic globally successful British series – Luther, for Indian audiences.
Over the past year, Hotstar Specials has disrupted the world of digital entertainment with genre-defining shows like Aarya where a crime story was given a female gaze, the Criminal Justice franchise that revived courtroom drama, an animated series that appeals to all age groups with the Legend of Hanuman, and the announcement of the first-of-its-kind multiverse with Special Ops 1.5. Rudra – The Edge of Darkness makes the next bold move by Hotstar Specials in raising the bar of quality content in India.
Following the massive success of series including Criminal Justice, City of Dreams, Hostages and The Office, Hotstar Specials and Applause Entertainment continue their long-term partnership for this massive series, produced in association with BBC Studios India. Rudra – The Edge of Darkness will soon be available for all subscribers of Disney+ Hotstar VIP, and Disney+ Hotstar Premium.
