“My attempt has always been to tell unique stories and work with good talent. The idea is to raise the bar of entertainment in India. The digital world excites me, and I am looking forward to working with Applause and BBC to bring this series to life on Disney+ Hotstar VIP. ‘Rudra – The Edge of Darkness’ is a compelling and highly intriguing story and I can’t wait to begin this new journey!”
“Playing a cop on screen is not new to me, but this time the character is more intense, complex, and dark. What drew me most to his persona, is that he is possibly the greyest character you may come across in recent times,” he further added.
