Ajay Devgn and Ileana D’Cruz‘s Raid is all set to hit the screens this Friday. An action packed film about an Income Tax Officer on a mission to expose the most corrupt and powerful man in his city, Raid looks like an interesting film. In fact, after Ajay delivered his highest grossing film at the box office last time around (Golmaal Again), the expectations from this one are sky high. So how will it perform at the box office? And will Raid become one of his top 10 highest grossing films till date? Well we did a little analysis of our own and here’s what we feel.
Considering the genre, the buzz around the film, Ajay’s stardom, his last film’s success, the screen space it is about to get and the content, we feel Raid will surely be a hit. In fact, with every Ajay Devgn action film being successful at the box office, we are sure it will be one of his highest grossers so far. For the uninitiated, Ajay’s highest box office grosser till date is Golmaal Again, which collected Rs 205.69 crore in its lifetime run. This is followed by Singham Returns (Rs 140.62 crore) and Golmaal 3 (Rs 106.34 crore). After these three, Son of Sardaar (Rs 105.03 crore), Bol Bachchan (Rs 102.94 crore), Shivaay (Rs 100.33 crore), Singham (Rs 100.30 crore), Raajneeti (Rs 93.66 crore), Baadshaho (Rs 78.10 crore) and Drishyam (Rs 67.13 crore) complete the top 10.

So Raid will have to earn more than Rs 68 crore to enter Ajay’s list of top 10 highest grossing films yet. And according to our trade sources, in the ideal scenario considering the genre, buzz, screen space and content, Raid should rake in around about Rs 80 crore in its lifetime run. This would make it his 8th highest grossing film till date. That’s a fantastic scenario, right? Anyway, how excited are you for Ajay Devgn and Ileana D’Cruz’s Raid?
