Produced by Applause Entertainment in association with BBC Studios India, the crime drama is directed by Rajesh Mapuskar. This six-episode series is an Indian remake of the iconic, globally successful British series - 'Luther'.

"'Rudra' is an exceptional series, narrative-wise, as it spins a darker and grimmer tale to the usual cop and crime drama. Here we have a grey hero who believes in living in the dark to discover the truth. The psyche of criminal minds is explored here in a never-before-seen manner. The audience takes away some understanding of how the deeply alluring minds of the criminals work. I hope the series receives much love and appreciation from the audience," he shared.

The Hotstar Specials show is coming soon on Disney+ Hotstar and will be available in Hindi, Tamil, Telugu, Kannada, Marathi, Malayalam and Bengali.
