The renowned Atul Kulkarni has joined the cast of Rudra – The Edge of Darkness, a series starring Ajay Devgn and due to be shot in Mumbai. In this one-of-a-kind criminal series, the character actor who is a recognised figure in the industry will enthral the audience once again. Applause Entertainment is producing Rudra – The Edge of Darkness in collaboration with BBC Studios.
Atul will also be seen in Applause Entertainment’s The City Of Dreams Season 2, the powerful sequel to the 2019 political drama which starts streaming on July 30 on Disney+ Hotstar.
Says Atul Kulkarni, “Digital content is dynamic and has altered the art of storytelling. Rudra – The Edge of Darkness is a gripping series that will surely disrupt the genre of cop dramas in India. With Rajesh Mapuskar helming the project, it will be exciting to work on this thriller. The series also comprises a stellar cast, and I can’t wait to begin filming this one. I am delighted to team up with Applause Entertainment again post the hit political drama City of Dreams.”
In Rudra – The Edge Of Darkness, Raashii Khanna, a renowned star in the South, joins Ajay Devgn and Atul Kulkarni. In Shoojit Sircar’s Madras Café, Raashii played John Abraham’s wife. Following that, she moved her focus to Tamil and Telugu films. Rudra marks her return to the Hindi film industry.
Says Raashii, “I am very excited to be a part of Applause Entertainment’s Rudra – The Edge of Darkness. It is really rare to get something that pushes you out of your comfort zone and actually challenges you as an actor and Rudra just gave me that opportunity. I am extremely elated. Looking forward to an amazing experience on set with talented actors like Ajay Devgn, Esha Deol, Atul Kulkarni amongst others, and I am excited to collaborate with Applause Entertainment and BBC Studios for this one.”
