Actors Ajay Devgn and Ileana D’Cruz are busy shooting for Rajkumar Gupta’s ‘Raid’ in Lucknow. The movie, based in the 1980s, will see Ajay playing the role of an income tax office in a story that is based on an income tax raid that took place in UP. A video of the actors shooting for the movie has surfaced on social media.
The leaked video shows both Ajay and Ileana stepping out of a jeep and walking away. By the looks of it, it looks like the scene is part of the film. Ajay is seen wearing a white shirt while Ileana is looking pretty in green ethnic attire. The video seems like a fan sneaked into the sets to give fans a glimpse of the making.
Speaking to the media about the film a few days ago, Ileana said, “Raid… we are almost done with it. Working with Ajay has been really really smooth. He is one of those people who are just so easy to work with. You forget the fact that he is this big superstar because he is super easy to work with. And, it is a great role for me, it is very different. It is out of the 1980s, so it is very interesting. I think, I have done so many films from 1970s and 1950s, and now 1980s. But I think it is a great film, and it was a great experience working with Rajkumar Gupta as well. And it is a great story, I think it is something that people want to see now, they want great stories, great content. So, the film has got great content.”
Kumar Mangat and Bhushan Kumar will produce the movie and Ritesh Shah, who has been associated with Pink and Airlift, has written the script. “Raid is a story that needs to be told on the big screen, and I’m looking forward to working with Ajay on a subject like this," director Gupta said. Other movies he has worked on are No One Killed Jessica and Rajeev Khandelwal's Aamir.
Raid will hit the theaters on April 20, 2018.
