If Kajol loved the film, Raid gave some gyaan to their son. She added, "Yugs review:- I learnt about income tax!"
While the film was criticised by some critics for the stretching out the plot a bit too far, the audience have been showering it with love. Let’s see if this continues for the weeks to come especially now that Tiger Shroff starrer Baaghi 2 has hit the cinemas and, is winning box-records like a king.
Raid is directed by Raj Kumar Gupta and is written by Ritesh Shah. The film features Ajay Devgn, Ileana D'Cruz and Saurabh Shukla in lead roles and is reportedly inspired by the real-life I-T raids that were conducted by the officers of the Indian Revenue Service in the 1980s.
