FIRST LOOK: A lean Ajay Devgn and demure Ileana D’Cruz shoot for Raid
Returning on the screen post their last release Baadshaho, Ajay Devgn and Ileana D’Cruz are currently busy shooting for the action drama Raid. Directed by Rajkumar Gupta, the film is based on one of the most high profile income tax raids of the country with Ajay playing the role of a protagonist.
While earlier we received quite a few glimpses as well as details of the film, we couldn’t spot the lead couple Ajay and Ileana shooting together. But now, we came across a picture of the two of them shooting for Raid which is currently being shot in Uttar Pradesh. While Ajay’s lean and firm look was more nostalgic reminding us of his Singham avatar, Ileana, quite contrary to her previous film [in which she played the grey shaded role of Maharani Gitanjali], appeared in a rather demure in a traditional avatar.
A simple formal pair of pants-shirt with black shades comprised of Ajay Devgn’s character look whereas Ileana was seen sporting a rather modest salwar kameez in the said sequence. Considering that Raid is set in a different time period of the 80s, the fashion too for the film is designed keeping in mind the details of the era.
Just earlier in the day, it was being said that Raid will have Ajay Devgn as an income tax officer conducting various raids. It was also revealed that the film features real life police officials as the reel life ones who accompany Ajay in these high profile raids. Written by Ritesh Shah, Raid is produced by Kumar Mangat in association with T-Series and is slated to release on March 16 next year.
