When Raj Kumar Gupta‘s Raid hit the screens in 2018, it was instantly labelled as a must-watch. From an intelligent script, commendable screenplay to interesting characters and punchy dialogues, the film had it all. Now, news is that Ajay Devgn , who played the character of Amay Patnaik in the film, is all set to come back with a sequel, as confirmed by the producers themselves.
A report by Mumbai Mirror quoted a source saying, “The franchise seeks to bring into the public eye heroes who work closely with intelligence agencies to track white-collar crimes. To this day, nobody knows the identity of the officer on whom Ajay’s Amay was modelled. Raid 2 will also be a tribute to men who don’t wear the uniform.”
T-Series’ Bhushan Kumar also established that Raid 2 is currently in the scripting stage. He told Mumbai Mirror “It will be a huge multi-film franchise and Ajay Ji and I, along with Kumar Mangat Ji, are looking to take Raid forward. The script of Part 2 is being developed. Since the original was a much-loved film, the sequel is a huge responsibility. After the super success of Tanhaji: The Unsung Warrior, there’s a lot of pressure on this collaboration to live up to the expectation.”
After collaborating on the period drama Tanhaji: The Unsung Warrior, Ajay Devgn and Bhushan Kumar’s next is Abhishek Dhundaiya‘s Bhuj: The Pride Of India. The movie is set against the backdrop of the 1971 India-Pakistan war
