Ajay Devgn is all gearing up for his digital debut with the Hotstar show, Luther, which is the official adaptation of the British classic psychological crime thriller of the same name. The Indian version will be produced by Applause Entertainment. Sometime back, AJ put out a video on his social media saying that he has “an exciting news to share, but not today, tomorrow.” Pinkvilla has exclusively learnt that Ajay is all set to announce his foray into the digital world with Luther tomorrow.  

“It’s a classic show and the makers were clear on getting a top A-List star on board. When they approached Ajay with the script, he was bowled over by the writing and instantly came on board. He will be playing the role of a detective, originally played by Idris Elba, who is obsessed by his job of catching criminals. The character is multi-dimensional, with shades of grey to it, and required an actor of Ajay’s calibre,” revealed a source close to the development adding further that the pre-production work on the show is going on in full swing at the moment.
