Ajay Devgn and Esha Deol worked together in a number of films during the early 2000s
In April this year, Ajay Devgn announced his digital debut with the Disney+ Hotstar VIP original series Rudra - The Edge of Darkness. Now, the makers have unveiled the female lead of the much-anticipated show. Ajay is set to reunite with his Yuva co-actor Esha Deol Takhtani in the upcoming web series. The actors are reuniting onscreen after nearly 15 years and both are foraying into digital space at the same time.
Rudra marks Esha's acting comeback after welcoming her second baby Miraya. Talking about the same, the actor said in a statement, "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.” The actress also added that she’s excited about her digital debut especially since the OTT space has witnessed a resounding success.
On reuniting with Ajay, the actress further said, “I am looking forward to working with Ajay after a long time who has been a fantastic co-star to me in many films."
For the uninitiated, Ajay and Esha have worked together in several films namely Yuva (2004), Kaal (2005), Insaan (2005), Main Aisa Hi Hoon (2005) and Cash (2007).
While announcing Rudra - The Edge of Darkness, Ajay shared a motion poster where he is seen standing against the backdrop of Bandra-Worli Sea Link in Mumbai. The actor-filmmaker captioned his post as "Happy to announce the crime thriller of the year Hotstar Specials Rudra - The Edge Of Darkness. This one’s going to be ‘killer’ @disneyplushotstarvip #DebutDobara #Rudra @applausesocial @bbcstudiosindia @sameern."
