• 'Nit Khair Manga' is a soulful sufi song from 'Raid'

    21st February 2018

    After "Sanu Ek Pal Chain", the makers of 'Raid' are out with another revamped version of the song and it is the king of Qawwali, Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan's hit number "Nit Khair Manga" which is filmed magnificently. Both, Ajay Devgn and Ileana D'Cruz as sweet looking husband and wife from late 1981 have been picturised elegantly with a lot of grace and kindness.

    This well-known qawwali has been refurbished by giving a Sufi touch and is being loved by the audiences of this generation making them familiar with the tone of qawwali. Performed by late Nusrat's son Rahat Fateh Ali Khan, its eloquent lyrics have been penned by Manoj Muntashir with the Tanishk Bagchi's composition.

Set in the backdrop of Uttar Pradesh from 1981 era, the film is based on one of the most high-profile and well-crafted Income Tax raids conducted in the country. Produced by Bhushan Kumar and Kumar Mangat, 'Raid' is set to hit theatres on March 16, 2018.
