Ajay Devgn has managed to carve a new image of himself in the past few years. He has been working continuously and yet his projects are versatile. After making the audiences laugh in Total Dhamaal and setting up a precedent with Tanhaji, Devgn is back with his new release in an entirely new genre. Rudra: The edge of darkness is a psychological crime thriller. Indian movies have not yet been able to attain success in the genre and so Rudra has a lot of excitement and hope around it.
Many times crime thrillers like these derive inspiration from real life. Therefore, soon after the release of Rudra, there were speculations about the show being based on a true story.

It only drew inspiration from other fictional works like Sherlock Holmes.
