Ajay Devgn and Ilena D’Cruz starrer ‘Raid’ has been seeing immense growth since its opening weekend. The audience is highly impressed with the way the makers and the actors have delivered the film and the gripping plot on the big screen. Last year, while movies were struggling to mint money at the box office, Ajay Devgn’s ‘Golmaal Again’ grossed Rs 300-crores worldwide.
When Ajay was asked by a leading daily if 100 crores and above are a target for him, the actor stated, “You never think like this. ‘Raid’ and ‘Golmaal Again’ are completely different; you can’t expect this film to be a ‘Golmaal’. Every film has its own result, and reasons [for an actor] to do [it]. So, if you say that this one will do Rs 250 or Rs 300 crore, it is not what we are looking at, any which way. A good number is appreciated, that’s what matters to us.”
“Such films [like Raid] are not very expensive films, and when they do well, it makes us feel very happy and appreciated. [Also] There’s no such thing as a club, that’s all rubbish! It actually began to irritate me when people asked questions about it. It started as a joke, therefore I don’t know why people are so dumb to take it so seriously. You want your film to do well, and it will do well, but what I’m saying is that there are two different zones we are talking about here. I am not saying [Raid] won’t do Rs 100 or Rs 150 crore, or whatever it does. Every script has an audience and range, so if it works within that, it makes us satisfied,” Ajay added.
