Initially, it looked a bit difficult for the film to enter the Rs 100 crore club, since it faced stiff competition from films like Sonu Ke Titu Ki Sweety, Hichki and more recently from the Tiger Shroff and Disha Patani starrer Baaghi 2. But looks like a positive word of mouth seems to have worked in its favour, helping it to cross the mark in its fourth week.
Raid has been made at a total cost of Rs 45 crore and has managed to emerge as a hit film. The movie is said to be based on true incident back in the 1980s and 90s.
