Ajay Devgn’s fight against corruption has opened to a good response at the box office by minting over Rs 10-crore on the opening day.
Raid, a film based on one man’s stand against corruption, opened to strong reviews and positive word of mouth from fans and critics alike, which has provided the film with good numbers at the ticket counter.
According to trade analyst Taran Adarsh, Raid’s opening day figures are at par with Pad Man and the film is the 3rd best opener of 2018.
The film’s business is expected to grow on the weekends, courtesy-stellar performances by the lead actors.
