Arjun Rampal hosted a special screening for the teaser of the much awaited Daddy, a biopic on the life of gangster Arun Gawli. The teaser was special not because of the time and effort and passion that has been put in by director actor duo Arjun and Ashim Ahluwalia, but because the very first people to view it were the ones who make it what it is, the family and close friends of Arun Gawli AKA Daddy.
Gawli’s daughters, Geeta, Yogita, Asmita Gawli and his close aids spoke eloquently about the teaser and the life of their real life Daddy. When asked what she thought about the teaser, Geeta Gawli said, “To see Daddy in person and on screen is very different. We cannot wait for the movie and are overwhelmed by the teaser. Arjun and Ashim have shown every aspect of our father’s life in this movie. We have no words to describe what we are going through. Over the last 3 years, Arjun has really understood my father and I really respect that he has kept his feelings in mind and made this movie while staying true to the ups and downs that he has endured in his life.”
Adding to this, Yogita Gawli said, “Arjun Sir has dedicated nearly 4 years to this project and no other actor shows such dedication. This is all his hard work. He was so patient and he wanted to know everything about the character and that’s how onscreen, I was actually thinking that wow, he has gotten into the skin of the character, his effort shows in the teaser itself. This teaser has given me goosebumps and brought my dad closer to me. To keep yourself grounded and face challenges is what my Father is all about and the teaser shows just that, ‘The Only One Who Did Not Run’ holds so true for him and I am glad that it is a part of the teaser.”
She also added, “Everyone has a life and every life has its ups and downs. No one chooses such a profession on purpose, there are circumstances that push people to do so. However, my daddy is the most grounded and caring person and that is why the whole world calls him Daddy.”
