Ajay Devgn plays India’s most high-profile raid
Mumbai. The trailer for Ajay Devgn's upcoming thriller Raid has been released by the makers. While Ajay grabs your attention from the get-go in his role of a no-nonsense Income Tax Officer Amay Patnaik, he has the perfect nemesis in the form of Saurabh Shukla.
Based on one of the most high-profile and well-crafted Income Tax raids of the country, Raid explores the struggle an upright Income Tax Officer has to go through to conduct a raid on one of the wealthy goons of a city, in this case Shukla. But that does not mean Ajay Devgn is any less badass. The 1-minute-long trailer is full of power-packed dialogues accentuated with the proper UP accent the actors have taken on.
Raid also stars Ileana D'Cruz in the role of Ajay's wife who supports her husband through thick and thin. The film is set in the 1980s Uttar Pradesh and will be produced by Bhushan Kumar and Kumar Mangat. Written by Ritesh Shah who also has super-hits like Pink and Airlift to his name, Raid is scheduled to release on March 16, 2018.
