Mumbai: Ajay Devgn starrer Raid has done fabulous business so far at the Box Office and may cross the Rs 100 crore milestone soon if it continues to draw audiences to the theatres in the next few days.

#Raid Tue biz remains at par with Mon biz... Good trending... [Week 2] Fri 3.55 cr, Sat 5.71 cr, Sun 7.22, Mon 2.42 cr, Tue 2.41 cr. Total: ₹ 84.36 cr. India biz.

During the trailer launch of the film, Ajay said, "I don't know about the benchmark or perception that this movie might create, but the real struggle with film was that the character is very heroic, but real at the same time. We tried to keep it real even with the punchlines. It doesn't feel you're watching a movie. The challenge was to follow the character as realistically as possible."

The film, which also features Ileana D'Cruz and Saruabh Shukla, is set in the 1980s era. It tells the story of an income tax officer.

"Especially during 1980s' era, when the environment wasn't good, it was not easy. I am sure Ritesh (Shah) and Rajkumar Gupta can tell you incidents when income tax officers were brutally murdered. They use to go through a very hard time," he said.

Ajay said the film's makers interacted with real income tax officers to establish the part.

Raid - has received the second best response in the opening week after Sanjay Leela Bhansali's Padmaavat this year.
