Raid song Sanu Ek Pal Chain, picturised on the film's lead stars Ajay Devgn and Ileana D'Cruz, beautifully portrays a husband and wife's relationship. It is a remake of the popular song by Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan of the same name. The remixed version has been recreated by composer Tanishk Bagchi and sung by Rahat Fateh Ali Khan. The song opens on Ajay and Ileana and captures their day-to-day lives. Ajay plays an Income Tax officer while Ileana stars as his wife. Last year, Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan's Mere Rashke Qamar was recreated for Ajay and Ileana's film Baadshaho. Watch Raid song Sanu Ek Pal Chain here.

At the trailer launch of Raid, Ajay Devgn told news agency PTI, "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." Ajay Devgn has given remarkable performances in films like Omkara, Singham and Drishyam.
Raid also features actor Saurabh Shukla in a pivotal role and is slated to release on March 16.
