Ever since Rudra: The Edge of Darkness was announced in April, it has become a keenly awaited offering. After all, it not only marks Ajay Devgn’s foray into digital entertainment, but is also the official adaptation of Idris Elba’s much-loved crime drama, Luther. Now, it has come to light that Esha Deol Takhtani, who has been missing from the big screen since her 2011 offering Tell Me O Kkhuda, is set to resume her place in front of the camera with the Disney+ Hotstar series.

Her joy is palpable as she returns to her first love — acting. “I am excited to be back at work, especially alongside Ajay. We have been co-stars in numerous movies. There is a comfort level between us,” says Deol, who had teamed up with Devgn on Yuva (2004), Kaal (2005) and Cash (2007), among other films. She is tight-lipped about her role in the Rajesh Mapuskar-directed offering that will be shot across Mumbai, only willing to share her excitement about exploring the long-format storytelling. “I am thrilled to make my digital debut with Rudra. The script charged me up,” she adds.
