Of his character in Raid, Ajay Devgn had said previously: “I don’t know about the benchmark or perception that this movie might create, but the real struggle with film was that the character is very heroic, but real at the same time. We tried to keep it real even with the punchlines. It doesn’t feel you’re watching a movie. The challenge was to follow the character as realistically as possible.”
