Ajay Devgn has become the symbol of every common man's idol cop due to his awe-inspiring portrayal of Singham. After taking a break from his much-loved avatar, the actor is all ready to make a comeback in a character similar to his no-nonsense cop.

Playing the hard-headed Income Tax officer, Ajay Devgn is looking intense and determined to create a corruption-free system in the trailer of his forthcoming social drama 'Raid'. Set in the backdrop of 1981, the true story revolves around an idealistic government officer.

In his fight against corruption, the honest officer accepts his 50th transfer but refuses to stop his campaign. During his tryst with Saurabh Shukla while conducting India's most high-profile and well-crafted Income Tax raids, Ajay's Amay Patnaik faces many hardships.

The 2-minute and 46-second long trailer brings out Ajay Devgn's badass avatar who throws power-packed dialogues at his rivals but doesn't refrain from indulging in little romantic moments with his wife, played by  Ileana D’Cruz, who stands by him through thick and thin.

No One Killed Jessica hitmaker Raj Kumar Gupta helms the Ajay Devgn starrer. Talking about the film, he said, "Raid is a story that needs to be told on the big screen. I am looking forward to my collaboration with Ajay sir, Bhushanji, Kumarji and Abhishek on this film."

Written by Ritesh Shah, be it the shady lanes or aggressive goons, Raid represents the 1980s Uttar Pradesh appropriately. Produced by Bhushan Kumar and Kumar Mangat, the film is scheduled to release on March 16, 2018.
