Raid released on March 16, minted Rs 5.36 crore on Wednesday, taking the total collection to Rs 58.39 crore. It seems that the film, which is inspired by the real-life IT raids that were conducted by the officers of the Indian Revenue Service in the 1980s, is benefitting from good word of mouth promotion.
Ajay said that audience’s exposure to the world has opened up the opportunity to explore for actors. “The fact that the audience has evolved gives us a lot of leverage. Earlier subject movies couldn’t make because the audience didn’t like it. Now people have started liking different subjects. Audience knows what is happening across the globe and it widens our horizon as well,” the actor said.
Apart from Ajay, the film also starred Saurabh Shukla and Ileana D’cruz in the lead roles.
