Flaunting a prosthetic nose, long tresses, a beard and an intense look, Arjun looked every inch his part. As stated by the makers, Daddy gives an an insight into the Mumbai underworld and traces Arun Gawli’s journey from his rise as India’s most feared gangsters to eventually becoming a politician. The movie is narrated from multiple perspectives and spans over four decades. The film’s teaser was released last year in December, and its new trailer has only made cinefans more curious.
