After creating his niche in the films, Ajay Devgn has now aimed the OTT universe. As per reports, the Tanhaji fame is all set to make his digital debut with an undisclosed OTT giant. The buzz says that he will be starring in the Indian adaptation of Idris Alba’s acclaimed project Luther. Below are all the deets about the same.
Yes, you read that right. Devgn is all set to step in Idris Alba’s shoes to keep his first foot in the digital world that’s blooming. As per the latest reports, Ajay will be pairing with Ileana D’Cruz yet again. The Main Tera Hero actress will play the female lead opposite the Singham star.
As per Pinkvilla, Ajay Devgn has already given the nod and has signed the dotted lines. The makers were on a hunt for a leading lady. It turns out they found one in Ajay’s long-time collaborator. For the unaware, Ajay and Ileana D’Cruz have worked together in 2 films including Baadshaho and Raid.
Talking about the same, a source close to the development said, “The entire team wanted someone who will have a powerful screen presence, and they are already in talks with Ileana D’Cruz for the same. This will also be Ileana’s first web series if she says yes to it. She has heard the idea and loved it. She also has a great working rapport with Ajay so, in all probabilities, she will sign on the dotted line soon.”
As for Ileana D’Cruz’s character in the show, Luther has two strong female leads. One is Alice Morgan’s Ruth Wilson, and other is Indira Varma’s Zoe Luther (Luther’s wife). Talking about the part, the source added, “Ileana’s team is currently discussing modalities. She’s most probably going to play Ajay’s wife in the series.”
