Ajay Devgan Recent Release Raid received a thumping response from fans and film critics. Film Released in around 2,700 to 3,000 screens across the country, Raj Kumar Gupta directorial Raid did well at the multiplexes. Although the film Friday morning shows registered a low occupancy of around 15 percent, its business escalated towards the evening owing to the positive word-of-mouth publicity.
The film earned Rs 10.24 crore. Now, the second-day box-office report for Raid is out and, the real-life based drama has shown wonderful growth. Trade analyst and film critic Taran Adarsh took to Twitter and said, “#Raid shows a WONDERFUL 38.04% GROWTH on Day 2… Strong word of mouth is resulting in enhanced footfalls and BO numbers… Biz on Sun should be SUPER-STRONG too… Fri 10.04 cr, Sat 13.86 cr. Total: ₹ 23.90 cr. India biz”.
Although no other big Bollywood film released alongside Raid, Sonu Ke Titu Ki Sweety is still having a good hold at the box office. The romantic comedy is in its fourth week, but still refuses to slow down. Sonu Ke Titu Ki Sweety collected Rs 1.27 crore last Friday and Rs 2.11 crore on Saturday, suggesting that the film would pull a big audience on this weekend as well.
However, considering the current trend and the positive words for Raid, the film is likely to rake in good moolah over this weekend.This is to notice that Ajay Devgn, Ileana DCruz and Saurabh Shukla have played leading roles in the film and it is based on the real incident. The film is based on 1981’s India’s biggest income tax raid ever in Lucknow.
