After Baadshaho, Ajay and Ileana are all set to reunite on the silver screen once again with Raid and the new song is a proof of their sizzling chemistry.
Talking about the song, director Rajkumar Gupta had earlier revealed, “The song has been picturised on Ajay, who plays an upright and no-nonsense income tax officer and Ileana, who will be seen in the role of his supportive and brave wife. The song offers a glimpse into the onscreen couple’s life and the love, care and warmth they share in the film. It’s shot across Lucknow including landmark locations such as Hussainabad Clock Tower, Rumi Darwaza, Bada Imambada, Kudiya Ghat and Residency.”
Meanwhile, Raid is set in 1981 and follows the story of an income tax officer named Amay Patnaik (played by Devgn) in Lucknow trying to take on a ‘powerful corrupt’ called Tauji (played by Shukla) with the might of his officers.
Produced by Bhushan Kumar, Krishan Kumar, Kumar Mangat Pathak and Abhishek Pathak, Raid is slated to release on March 16, 2018.
