Arjun Rampal has a packed schedule with multiple projects of different genres lined up this year. After his recent release – Rock On 2 – the actor has gone back to shooting for his first biopic film, Daddy, in which he plays a gangster. And this gangster has a really interesting friend. After sharing screen space with Farhan Akhtar in Rock On 2, the actor will yet again be seen with him, who will be playing an important cameo in the film. If sources are to be believed, Farhan is going to play the character of Dawood Ibrahim, an indicted racketeer and terrorist.

Recently, the duo was captured by the shutterbugs during the shoot of a sequence. As per a report, Arjun had wrapped up the shooting of his film in October after Farhan had shot his portions in July. However, the filmmakers wanted to increase the screen life of Dawood because of which the schedule with Farhan was shot again.

We, in fact, found a picture that reveals the look of Farhan, who was seen wearing a polyester shirt reminiscent of the 1970s, with a wig and the actor has also sported a moustache.

Arjun was roped in the film because of his uncanny resemblance to Arun Gawli, a gangster turned 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.

The film has been shot at real locations and will cover Gawli’s life from his 20’s to his 60’s. On the work front, Arjun is busy promoting Kahaani 2, which stars Vidya Balan in the lead role.
