Ajay Devgn’s Golmaal Again became the highest grosser by crossing Rs 300 crore worldwide. As his latest outing Raid has won favourable reviews, Ajay Devgn was asked by a leading Indian daily about whether he considers box office numbers as his target. Ajay said, “You never think like this. Raid and Golmaal Again are completely different; you can’t expect this film to be a Golmaal. Every film has its own result, and reasons [for an actor] to do [it]. So, if you say that this one will do Rs 250 or Rs 300 crore, it is not what we are looking at, any which way. A good number is appreciated, that’s what matters to us.”

“Such films [like Raid] are not very expensive films, and when they do well, it makes us feel very happy and appreciated. [Also] There’s no such thing as a club, that’s all rubbish! It actually began to irritate me when people asked questions about it. It started as a joke, therefore I don’t know why people are so dumb to take it so seriously. You want your film to do well, and it will do well, but what I’m saying is that there are two different zones we are talking about here. I am not saying [Raid] won’t do Rs 100 or Rs 150 crore, or whatever it does. Every script has an audience and range, so if it works within that, it makes us satisfied,” Ajay added.

Meanwhile, Raid is helmed by Raj Kumar Gupta. The film also stars Ileana D’Cruz. The recent box office reports suggest that Raid has grossed Rs 41.25 crore up until now.
