Raashii Khanna who is very excited to make her digital debut shared an insight on the relationship her character shares with Rudra and working with Ajay Devgn, shares, “To be honest, I was nervous at first to work with him. But when I met him, I realized how down to earth he is. It’s very easy to have a conversation with him. And whatever little that I have pulled off playing this character is all thanks to him and my director. Ajay sir was very supportive and made me feel very comfortable. I wouldn’t have been able to pull off certain scenes if it wasn’t for his support, especially my introduction. He obviously is very experienced and I learnt a lot from him in terms of camera angles, playing out certain emotions, playing it natural and the list is very long!”
Tune in to Disney+ Hotstar to catch Ajay Devgn’s digital debut with crime thriller drama Rudra – The Edge of Darkness from 4th March 2022 onwards.
