First Bollywood project to be based on an Income Tax raid, Raid is helmed by Raj Kumar Gupta. The Ajay Devgn, Ileana D’Cruz and Saurabh Shukla starrer Raid is hitting theatres on March 16.
Ajay Devgn in the role of Amay Patnaik, a Tax Officer who is hell-bent on curbing the problem of tax evasion in his area. On the other side is the masterful Saurabh Shukla in the role of a wealthy goon, who goes by the name of Tauji. Ileana D’Cruz is playing the role of Devgn’s wife.
Raid is said to be inspired by real-life Income Tax raids conducted in the 80s.
Another thing that has stood out in the Raid trailer is the way Shukla and Devgn have imbibed the local language of Northern India to deliver more relatable performances.
