Raid starring Ajay Devgn, Ileana Dcruz and Saurabh Shukla is all set to hit the theatres on 16th of March, 2018. Set in Lucknow 1981, Raid narrates the story of one of the biggest financial crimes that took place in the history of the country. Ajay Devgn as the dapper officer Amay Patnaik is a perfect foil to the antagonist played by Saurabh Shukla, while Ileana Dcruz as the wife of an honest officer truly complements the cast to the T!

Raj Kumar Gupta has brought together an ensemble of stars for this film. Commenting on the casting, he said, “When we finished the script, we narrated it to Ajar Sir, he loved it! He was very keen to come onboard. I have been wanting to work with him for a while. No one could have played the role of Officer Amay Patnaik better than him, he perfectly suited the role. The same applies to Ileana. We needed an actress to play his wife and Ileana is the perfect mix of innocence and good acting.”

He further added, “Saurabh Sir also came on board immediately because of the script and the strong character that he plays. He was very excited to play the character of Rameshwar ‘Rajaji’ Singh.”

Gulshan Kumar & Tseries present, A Panorama Studios Production, Produced by Bhushan Kumar, Krishan Kumar, Kumar Mangat Pathak and Abhishek Pathak, Raid is directed by Raj Kumar Gupta. The film releases on 16th March 2018.

After the recreation of the romantic ballad ‘Sanu Ik Pal’, the makers of ‘Raid’ have now recreated another chart-topping melody of late Pakistani singer Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan

Nit Khair Mangda song
Ajay Devgn and Ileana D’cruz will be seen in the iconic song ‘Nit Khair Manga’s recreation in ‘Raid’.

After the recreation of the romantic ballad ‘Sanu Ik Pal’, the makers of ‘Raid’ have now recreated another chart-topping melody of late Pakistani singer Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan. Titled ‘Nit Khair Manga’, the track has been recreated in parts by lyricist Manoj Muntashir and sung by Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan’s singer-nephew, Rahat.

“The song has been picturised on Ajay Devgn, who plays an upright and no-nonsense income tax officer and Ileana D’cruz, who will be seen in the role of his supportive and brave wife. The song offers a glimpse into the onscreen couple’s life and the love, care and warmth they share in the film. It’s shot across Lucknow including landmark locations such as Hussainabad Clock Tower, Rumi Darwaza, Bada Imambada, Kudiya Ghat and Residency”, said director Rajkumar Gupta.

Composer Tanishk Bagchi, who has recreated the song, said, “When you hear it, you’ll understand that not just the hook line, the entire song is new. But I also wanted to retain the original’s essence. The good part about Rahat sir’s singing is that he understands the feel of a song which always helps. Nit Khair is a powerful romantic number.”

Gulshan Kumar & Tseries present, A Panorama Studios Production, Produced by Bhushan Kumar, Krishan Kumar, Kumar Mangat Pathak and Abhishek Pathak, Raid is directed by Raj Kumar Gupta. The film releases on 16th March 2018.

Ajay Devgn, who is currently shooting for Raid in Lucknow, celebrated producer Kumar Mangat Pathak’s birthday on the set recently

Ajay Devgn, who is currently shooting for Raid in Lucknow, celebrated producer Kumar Mangat Pathak’s birthday on the set recently. The actor is known to have cake trauma. He detests singing happy birthday and cutting a cake. Even for his own birthday, it’s either his kids (Nysa and Yug) or a unit hand who cuts his birthday cake. But Devgn seems to have loosened up a bit now as he joined in the celebrations along with Pathak’s wife Neelam and crew members.

After a spate of disappointing box-office releases, Rohit Shetty appears to be having the last laugh. The director’s latest comic caper, Golmaal Again has hit jackpot by earning Rs 200 crore within 24 days of its release. The figure marks the highest secured by an Ajay Devgn-starrer, with the actor’s Shivaay (2016) and Drishyam (2015) too, securing only Rs 100.3 crore and Rs 91.97 crore respectively.

An ecstatic Shetty tells mid-day, “I am overwhelmed with the response that the film has received and want to thank the audience for appreciating it.” Shetty’s Diwali release hit the marquee on October 19, along with Aamir Khan’s Secret Superstar, which has approximately earned Rs 60 crore till date. The positive word-of-mouth means the film continues to draw viewers to cinema halls.

Tomorrow morning will see Ajay Devgn head out for his fitness regimen — only, this time, he will swap the gym for Mumbai roads and keeping him company in his workout will be his German Shepherd, Koko. As part of the second edition of a petathon, pet owners and their canines will gather at MMRDA Grounds in Bandra for a mile-long marathon. The initiative aims to increase awareness around pet health and give tips to owners on better parenting of their four-legged friends.

Such is the charm of the marathon that Bollywood stars including Parineeti Chopra, Tusshar Kapoor and Arshad Warsi will be seen participating in it. A source reveals, “Tusshar is extremely attached to his mini Pomeranian Poshto. The minute he heard about the event, he was game. Arshad too will be running with his pet dog, Zuniboo.”

Fitness enthusiast Tiger Shroff, who is the face of the event, says, “Being fit is not just a part of my profession, but my passion too. I am glad such an event has been organised. I love dogs and am excited to be a part of this brilliant initiative.”

The event, the first edition of which was kicked off last year at Gandhi Maidan in Chembur, is expected to last for four hours. Besides pet owners and the health-conscious, the marathon will be attended by city’s leading veterinarians and members of animal rights groups.

3 out of 5 stars
Box Office: TBA

golmaal-again-4The fourth franchise of Golmaal that began assaulting our senses in 2006, is essentially a horror-comedy that sees the reunion of the solid five (Ajay Devgn, Tusshar Kapoor, Arshad Warsi, Shreyas Talpade and Kunal Kemmu), with new entries Tabu and Parineeti Chopra all coming together with one common agenda – to entertain (and make money)! Like every other film from the series, Golmaal Again holds on strongly to its template. Two gangs pitted against one another who eventually come together for the greater common good aka fighting the bad boys. In this case, the baddies are the charming Neil Nitin Mukesh and villain pro Prakash Raj.

Ajay Devgn’s film ‘Golmaal Again’ is releasing soon. Ajay says since his kids love watching the ‘Golmaal’ film series Rohit Shetty and his entire team always ensure that there are no scenes or dialogues with double meanings so that children can enjoy watching the films.

Ajay Devgn has revealed that his son Yug loves the ‘Golmaal’ films. Yug couldn’t watch the first ‘Golmaal’ film when it was made but now watches the films whenever they are on television.

Ajay Devgn feels that a film from the ‘Golmaal’ series is always on an any TV channel everyday. Ajay’s son Yug always watches these films with great interest whenever aired on TV. So, Ajay is of the opinion that all children enjoy watching the ‘Golmaal’ films.

Ajay Devgn says son Yug is eagerly awaiting ‘Golmaal Again’ and so is he since he is interested to know his reaction.

Ajay Devgn says his children love watching comedy films as opposed to tear-jerkers. He believes children get good entertainment from such films.

But, Ajay also added that he doesn’t believe in films that have senseless comedy and steers clear from the genre himself. The actor-filmmaker believes that audience is smarter now and expects logic in a story.

Upon being asked on why is it that the ‘gang of boys’ of the ‘Golmaal’ cast remain constant but the actresses keep changing in each film, Ajay said that it is to have a fresh aspect in each sequel. Ajay Devgn went on to call co-star Tabu as the naughtiest and said he enjoyed working with Parineeti Chopra since day one.

You might have surely gotten a glimpse of your favourite gang i.e. Ajay Devgn, Shreyas Talpade, Kunal Kemmu, Arshad Warsi and Tusshar Kapoor. And also would have seen Tabu and Parineeti Chopra as the new additions to this crazy family. We bet, even after watching the trailer several times, you missed this most important person in the clip.

 Wondering who it is? It’s the mastermind behind this successful franchise, director Rohit Shetty. Well, we ain’t kidding, the man is in the trailer driving the sports car.

Golmaal Again (c) Reliance Entertainment

We all know about his fascination for automobiles, so seeing him ride one doesn’t surprise us. However, we surely didn’t expect to spot him in the trailer.

Golmaal Again (c) Reliance Entertainment

Take a closer look at the trailer and you will see him driving a sports car, giving Arshad Warsi a ride. Watch the trailer again from 1: 03 and see the director making a small appearance like a boss!

This time Golmaal is back as a horror comedy. The trailer begins with spooky background music and what follows next are few paranormal incidents. It would be interesting to see how Gopal, Lucky, Madhav and Laxman deal with supernatural events this Diwali.

The film is scheduled to release on October 20, 2017.

golmaal-againThe much-in-news trailer of ‘Golmaal Again’ is here and it looks bigger and better than all the other installments of the franchise. This time however with Ajay Devgn, Tusshar Kapoor, Arshad Warsi, Tabu, Shreyas Talpade, Kunal Kemmu and Parineeti Chopra, the story has an added twist of horror.

The three-minute-long trailer that was unveiled post a trailer launch in Mumbai sees the story unfold for the fourth installment. Ajay Devgn and Shreyas Talpade set the base for the audience as the trailer opens to a howling background score. What follows is a series of supernatural events that set the tone of a paranormal existence in the house where all these characters reside in the film. Parineeti is the fresh female face in the film and looks breathtakingly beautiful in each frame, Tabu as Rukmini, on the other hand, does an impeccable job with her acting chops.

The fourth film boasts of a huge star cast including Parineeti, Tabu, Neil Nitin Mukesh, Sanjay Mishra and Johnny Lever while retaining the usual suspects – Ajay, Tusshar, Arshad, Kunal and Shreyas. The film is scheduled to release on October 20, 2017.
