Ajay Devgn’s successful film ‘Raid’ (2018) helmed by Raj Kumar Gupta, is set to have a sequel, if reports are to be belived.
The film based on one of the longest Income Tax raids in the 80s, will see Devgn reunite with Bhushan Kumar after ‘Tanhaji: The Unsung Warrior’ for the political drama.
A source told Mumbai Mirror, “The franchise seeks to bring into the public eye heroes who work closely with intelligence agencies to track white-collar crimes. To this day, nobody knows the identity of the officer on whom Ajay’s Amay was modelled. Raid 2 will also be a tribute to men who don’t wear the uniform.”
The source added, “It will be a huge multi-film franchise and Ajay Ji and I, along with Kumar Mangat Ji, are looking to take Raid forward. The script of Part 2 is being developed. Since the original was a much-loved film, the sequel is a huge responsibility. After the super success of Tanhaji: The Unsung Warrior, there’s a lot of pressure on this collaboration to live up to the expectation. We have always aimed at creating high concept films.”
