Ajay Devgn starrer movie ‘Raid’ is all set to cross the 100 Crore mark today joining ‘Padmavat’, ‘Sonu Ke Titu ki Sweety’ and ‘Baaghi 2’. With the end of its third week, the film was a huge hit at the box office and till now collected 58 lacs at the box office making its total collection as 99.71 Crores. However, the trade experts predicted that the film would collect around 90 Crores during its run. The actors were praised by the critics, and received wonderful audience reviews and word of mouth publicity. The credit after the actors has to go to their fans who supported and loved the concept of the movie. As without the support of the audience it would have been impossible for the movie to earn such a good collection. The film was helmed by Raj Kumar Gupta and featured Ajay Devgn and Ileana D’Cruz in a lead role also starring Saurabh Shukla. And was produced by Abhishek Pathak, Kumar Mangat Pathak, Bhushan Kumar and Krishan Kumar. In an interview with Indiawest, Ajay Devgn was asked if he met Sharda Prashad Pandey, on whose life the film was based. The actor said,
Yes, and that was necessary because this film is not just about one incident – this raid – but also about the person he is. We had to understand his honesty, and why he was so honest. Over 30 years ago, only he had the courage to conduct an income-tax raid on the big man, coming up with an incredible amount of black money, equivalent to hundreds of crore in today’s times.This is the seventh movie of Ajay Devgn to cross the 100 crore mark after his previous hits like Golmaal Again, Singham returns, Son of Sardaar, Bol Bachchan,Shivaay and Singham. And we wish him more such movies in the near future….
