Esha Deol on `Rudra`: Great time to be back in front of camera

Esha Deol says it is a good time to make a comeback on screen with her upcoming series “Rudra – The Age of Darkness” as actors today have a wide variety of roles to choose from instead of getting stuck in the clichéd parts . The Disney+ Hotstar series, helmed by actor Ajay Devgn, marks the return of Isha, who was last seen in the 2015 film “Care of Pavement 2”.

“It’s a great time to get back in front of the camera because there are so many opportunities across platforms and mediums.

Esha also credited Devgn, who plays a cop in the show, for helping ease into the role, but stopped short of revealing details about his character. Both have previously worked in films like ‘Main Aisa Hi Hoon’, ‘Cash’, ‘Kaal’ and ‘Yuva’. “I have always admired Ajay’s work. Even with this show, it was a thrilling ride to share the screen once again with my friend and co-actor who made me feel comfortable coming back from the start of our shoots . Camera,” he added.
