Luv Ranjan's Sonu Ke Titu Ki Sweety, which is putting up a tough fight at the box office, is just a few crore shy of 100 crore. The film minted Rs 2.11 crore on Saturday (17 March), which goosed its total to Rs 97.02 crore. The film so far remains unaffected by Ajay Devgn's entry, who is also known as the 'hit machine'.

In Raid, Devgn plays a dedicated income tax official who conducts a high-stakes raid on an influential but corrupt politician (played by Saurabh Shukla). The story is inspired by certain real life incidents which took place in Uttar Pradesh in the '80s. The film has received a positive response from the critics for a its straight plot, devoid of unnecessary drama and romanticisation. Raid is now 2018's third biggest opener, dethroning Sonu Ke Titu Ki Sweety. Sanjay Leela Bhansali's Padmaavat and R Balki's Padman are currently at the first and second spots respectively.
