Bollywood veteran Ajay Devgn is gearing up for an OTT debut. According to a report published on Pinkvilla, Devgn has been signed on by a major OTT for a show. The series in question is reportedly a Hindi remake of Luther that starred Idris Elba. 

The Singham star has already signed on the project and the makers were on the lookout for an actress to step in for the show. "The entire team wanted someone who will have a powerful screen presence and they are already in talks with Ileana D'Cruz for the same. This will also be Ileana's first web series, if she says yes to it. She has heard the idea and loved it. She also has a great working rapport with Ajay so in all probabilities, she will sign on the dotted line soon." a source was quoted as saying. 

There are two primary roles on the show. One is of Alice Morgan that's portrayed by Ruth Wilson, and the other of Luther's wife on the show named Zoe Luther that was played  by Indira Varma. It's currently not known which role D'cruz will potray. "Ileana's team is currently discussing modalities. She's most probably going to play Ajay's wife in the series," the source added.

The two had previously shared screen space in films like Baadshaho and Raid. D'cruz  also plays the lead in Devgn's next production venture The Big Bull that hits the digital platform soon. But if this works out, it will be their third project together as leads.
