Till now, we heard rumours doing the rounds that Arjun Rampal was roped in for Arun Gawli’s biopic because of his uncanny resemblance to the gangster-turned-politician. But now, Arjun has left us shocked with the first look of his film, Daddy. Arjun shared a teaser of Daddy, which gives us a close look at Arun Gawli and then takes us to Arjun’s portrayal of the character, which is intriguing, interesting and impressive. Even the tagline of the film is worth attention, which reads, ‘the only one who did not run.’
Earlier, Daddy’s filmmaker also shared a short video on YouTube giving an introduction to Gawli’s character. Though the video does not have any visuals, the rustic voice definitely will send shivers down your spine. In the video, we can hear Gawli being interviewed and answering a few questions about his relations with the underworld and his supporters’ expectations from him as a politician.
A prosthetic specialist from Italy has been working on Arjun’s look. While the model-turned-actor is much taller than Gawli, his resemblance after prosthetic has been grabbing eyeballs every now and then. Arjun’s look was leaked from the sets of Daddy, which left the actor and the filmmakers quite upset.

However, it seems that all the wait is worth it because the first look promises a path-breaking film by Arjun, whose recent release Rock On 2 failed to perform at the box office.
Produced by Eros International, the film has been directed by Ashim Ahluwalia.
