Popular Indian actor Ajay Devgn is all set to make his digital debut with the remake of the popular British TV series "Luther."
In March, the actor posted a cryptic message on social media asking fans to refer to him as 'Sudarshan' instead of Ajay Devgn. Many reports suggested that it was a promotional post for his untitled web series.
According to Bollywood Hungama, the web series will be jointly produced by BBC India and Applause Entertainment.
An insider said, "Ajay will be making his OTT debut with the Luther remake that is jointly being produced by BBC India and Applause Entertainment. Once ready the show will be aired on Disney+ Hotstar, and an official announcement of the show will happen sometime next week."
While dropping a brief hint about the lead actors of the series, he said, "The original is a psychological crime thriller with Idris Elba playing the lead. Given the seriousness and gravitas needed for the role Ajay was the perfect fit for the remake."
"The remake will also feature a prominent female lead much like the original, and buzz is that Ileana D'Cruz has been approached for the role," the insider added.
There are reports as well that the show will be directed by Rajesh Mapuskar, who directed the 2012 film Ferrari Ki Sawaari.
No details have been given regarding the plot of the web series but given the storyline of the original British TV show 'Luther,' we can expect the remake to feature Devgn going undercover as an investigator to solve crimes.
