'Nit Khair Manga' from RAID will tug at your heart strings

After treating the audience with ‘Sanu Ek Pal’ redux, the makers of RAID have released a recreated version of another popular romantic ballad Nit Khair Manga’ of Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan saab.

The new version is recreated by Tanishk Bagchi and is once again sung by Nusrat saab’s nephew Rahat Fateh Ali Khan. The additional lyrics of the song are penned by Manoj Muntashir.


Tanishk’s music arrangements are nice and the song has received a new life thanks to Rahat’s voice. Ajay Devgn and Ileana D’Cruz as the newly wedded couple are looking adorable in the song especially Ileana.


Shot across Lucknow’s landmark locations such as Hussainabad Clock Tower, Rumi Darwaza, Bada Imambada, Kudiya Ghat and Residency the beauty of the city is rightly captured in the song.


The romance between Ileana and Ajay Devgn has an old world charm to it, something which we don’t get to see in our contemporary movies these days.

Interestingly the same song of Nusrat saab was earlier used in Akshay Kumar and Karisma Kapoor starrer JAANWAR (1999), however, then only its tune was used as entirely new lyrics of the song 'Mera Yaar Dildaar' were penned by Sameer.

Produced by Bhushan Kumar, Krishan Kumar, Kumar Mangat Pathak and Abhishek Pathak, RAID is directed by Raj Kumar Gupta and is slated to release on 16th March, 2018.
