Riding high on the success of Raid, Ajay Devgn is a happy man. 

Playing the role of a deputy commissioner of Income Tax, Ajay is reported to have delivered a power-packed performance in the film along with Ileana D'Cruz and Saurabh Shukla who have played equally important roles. 

While promoting his film, Ajay was quoted speaking about his acting and how he usually takes two-three minutes before a shot to get into the role. He said, "I still don't know how to 'get' into a role. Even if I sit down and say, "Let me work hard on my acting", it doesn't happen. This is how I am. I can do it only spontaneously. My directors know that I will not be able to do a rehearsal or remember my lines there. I cannot. It's just that when the camera starts rolling, you start feeling and thinking like the character."

"And that's my only preparation — to know what my character will do, or behave, in a situation. That's the only system I follow. In between shots, as soon as it's a cut, we have fun, even when the most emotional scenes are happening," he added. 

The film is helmed by Raj Kumar Gupta.
