Bollywood has always been big on making biopics. The recent ones which are in the buzz are Aamir Khan starrer Dangal and Shah Rukh Khan starrer Raees. Amid this, there comes one more biopic on the gangster turned politician Arun Gawli. We all know that Arun Gawli is popular with the name of ‘Daddy’. Keeping this in mind, we will soon get to see a biopic named ‘Daddy’ starring Arjun Rampal in the lead, portraying Arun Gawli. We saw the first teaser of ‘Daddy’, directed by Ashim Ahluwalia and its really very exciting! Arjun Rampal took to Twitter to promote the unique ‘voice teaser’ of the movie. Now it’s first look is out too!
The teaser is actually very intense as Arun Gawli himself has lent his voice to the teaser. We can hear Arun Gawli answering some questions about his life and image asked by the people. The teaser only features his voice and not him! The video does not reveal the look of the movie and this strategy has worked wonders! Post teaser came the first look of the movie and Arjun Rampal has blown our minds!
Arjun Rampal posted the first look on Twitter in a form of a short video clip. The fourteen second clip shows the real Daddy and the reel Daddy one after another. Arjun Rampal has nailed the look of Arun Gawli we must say! The look also shows Arjun Rampal with the tag ‘Daddy- the only one who did not run’. Arjun looks quite similar to Arun Gawli’s younger version! The promotion strategy was superb with bit by bit revelation keeping the audience on the edge of the seat, waiting to know more about the movie.
Earlier too there have been movies based on the lives of gangsters like Once Upon a Time in Mumbai, Shoot Out at Lokhandwala, Shoot out at Wadala and the upcoming Raees. These movies have been a hit among the silver screen buffs. We are sure Daddy will be received well too and with his intense look and thick baritone, Arjun Rampal will be able to do justice to the role. The look was earlier leaked on the internet and the makers were annoyed about it. However, with the kind of response the voice teaser and the look has grabbed, we are sure the makers are happy! Daddy is produced by Eros International, Kundalini Entertainment and Karat Entertainment.
