Raid box office collection: Ajay Devgn starrer continues strong run beyond weekend, inches closer to Rs 50 cr mark
Ajay Devgn has always proved to be a big draw at the box-office, and his latest movie, Raid, seems to be treading along the same path.
The Ajay Devgn-Ileana D'Cruz-starrer Raid hit the theatres on 16 March. While the first day collection was a bit slow, the film struck a chord with audiences and has since experienced remarkable growth. The film has so far minted Rs 47.27 crore at the box office.
