Trade expert Ramesh Bala confirmed Raid's box-office mathematics on Twitter and wrote, "Raid takes the 2nd biggest opening for a Bollywood movie after #Padmaavat. Friday 10.04 crores, Saturday 13.86 crores and Sunday 17.35 crores makes it a total of 41.25 crores."


In an interview with DNA, Ajay Devgn praised his director Rajkumar Gupta and said: "With Raid, I thought Raj Kumar can pull it off, seeing what he has done earlier with Aamir and No One Killed Jessica. Once I started shooting this film, I realised he is very good."

Raid is a period drama set in the early 1980s with Lucknow as the background. It revolves around a true incident of the longest raid in history.
