Ajay Devgn, who will be seen essaying the role of an income tax officer in Raid, has shot portions of the film in Lucknow. The makers have released a poster before the trailer. The poster looks as intense as Ajay Devgn’s eyes. Shifting the genre from comedy (Golmaal Again) to thriller (Raid) Ajay is all set to gift us another drama.
Set in Uttar Pradesh in the 1980s, Raid is based on real-life events involving one of the most high profile income tax raids the country has ever known. Raid will be directed by Rajkumar Gupta. With Drishyam, Ajay Devgn tried to something in the similar zone and it was appreciated by everyone.
With Raid, people are expecting the same chills & thrills as Drishyam. Backed by a directed who has gifted us some amazing movies like Aamir & No One Killed Jessica, Raid has already gained enough buzz. Raid will release on 16th March and the poster has a headline – “Heroes don’t always come in uniform.”
Talking about the film, director Raj Kumar Gupta says, “RAID is a story that needs to be told on the big screen. I am looking forward to my collaboration with Ajay sir, Bhushanji, Kumarji and Abhishek on this film.”
A Gulshan Kumar presentation of a T-Series and Panorama Studios production, Raid will be produced by Bhushan Kumar, Krishan Kumar, Kumar Mangat Pathak and Abhishek Pathak. For now, Ajay Devgn is busy with his upcoming comedy film Total Dhamaal. He will also be seen in an untitled rom-com directed by Akiv Ali.
