Ajay Devgn and Illeana D’ Cruz has been paired once again in Rajkumar Gupta’s Raid after Baadshaho. The story of the movie has been set in 80’s Lucknow. Biggest heist of income tax in India can be noticed at the core of the movie. The raid has certainly alter the history and made a mark on the people during the time.
Since entering into Bollywood after successful venture with South Indian Cinema, Illeana D’Cruz has shown her acting skills with varied range of characters. She has been sweet Bengali girl in her debut Barfi. Other hand, talent with comic timing has been showcased with the movies like Main Tera Hero and Mubbarakan.
During an interview with a publication house, she has given us some idea about her role in Raid. She has said “Even though the film is about the raid with Ajay (Devgn) as an income tax officer, I do have a pivotal role. I admit, in terms of footage, it’s not large, but it’s an interesting part of the film. My character is not a demure biwi from the ’80s. She is sensible, speaks her mind and is quite the force behind him. The equation between them comes out in the songs and in the emotional scenes where you realise she is worried for him yet tries to put up a brave front”
Regarding sharing screen space with Ajay Devgn once again after Raid, Ileana has said “There’s no plan as of now, but I’d love to work with Ajay again because he’s been doing a lot of content-driven films and is a nice, positive person to hang out with. On the sets, he was always chatting with his daughter (Nysa) or son (Yug) and since I was invariably listening in, I now feel I know his whole family.”
Release date of Raid has been fixed in 16th March, 2018.
