The makers of Ajay Devgn’s much awaited crime-drama, Raid have released the second song from the movie. The song titled “Nit Khair Manga” is a recreated version of Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan’s famous Qawwali. Crooned by the legendary singer Rahat Fateh Ali Khan, the song has been written by Manoj Muntashir. Recreated by Tanishk Bagchi, “Nit Khair Manga” traces its roots to the Punjabi sufiana tradition.
Ajay Devgn shared the song with his fans on social media referring to it as his “favorite song” from the movie! While the first song from the movie “Sanu Ek Pal Chain” made us nostalgic, the second one takes a step ahead in warming our hearts. The song is extremely touching and soulful with endearing lyrics. The highlight of the song is the beautiful chemistry between Ajay Devgn and Ileana D’Cruz. The song showcases the warmth that they share in their relationship.
The duo of Ajay Devgn and Rahat Fateh Ali Khan created magic with “Mere Rashke Qamar.” This time too, they have lived up to the expectations of their fans with “Nit Khair Manga.” The song glorifies the grandeur of Lucknow. It has been shot at landmark locations of the city which include Hussainabad Clock Tower, Rumi Darwaza, Bada Imambada, Kudiya Ghat and Residency.
Set in the 1980s, Raid is based on a famous income tax raid that happened in Uttar Pradesh. Ajay Devgn will be seen in the role of an IT officer in the movie. The gorgeous Ileana will be seen portraying the role of his brave and supportive wife.
