Arjun Rampal-starrer “Daddy”, which had an initial release date of July 21, will now be released on September 8 as Geeta Gawli, the daughter of gangster-politician Arun Gawli, met Arjun and requested him to push the release of the film as Arun Gawli gets parole and may be able to come out and discuss the film with the audience.
Based on Arun Gawli’s life, Daddy is the story of the emotional journey of the gangster’s family over the last three years.
And now there is a reports that Arun Gawli himself will going to promote the biopic “Daddy” with Arjun Rampal from this September.
Earlier this merger of the real and the reel was only an idea. But now it’s decided. Confirming the same Arjun says, “We were not sure if Arun Gawli’s bail application would be approved. But still we had postponed the release date of Daddy from July to September hoping he would be able to join us towards the release of the film.”
“The idea is to neither demonise nor eulogise him, but to portray him as human, real and vulnerable, yet strong. No one enjoys being known as a law-breaker. We’ve tried to go into Gawli’s dual image of being the outlaw and the messiah,” he says.
The team of Daddy is gearing up for unique promotional of the film, wherein a convict will be promoting a biopic when out on bail. Arjun Rampal promises to shed light on completely undiscovered facets of Gawli’s life. “The idea is to neither demonize nor eulogize him but to portray as human, real vulnerable yet strong.
Is Gawli okay with being shown with his blemishes? “If he wasn’t, he wouldn’t be joining us in promoting the film on his life when he would like nothing better than to spend time with his family,” Arjun argues reasonably.
The film starring Arjun Rampal in the lead role as Arun Gawli is directed by Ashim Ahluwalia and releases on September 8.
