From the rough streets and back alleys of Central Mumbai comes the sensational true story of Arun Gawli, a man who scripted his own destiny, eventually going on to become one of India’s most feared gangsters.
Today he remains an enigmatic figure; at once a volatile, power-hungry criminal for some and the respected Daddy or a modern day Robin Hood for the working-class neighbourhood he belongs to.
Daddy follows the intertwined fates of the world-weary Gawli as he attempts to enter politics and a frustrated Police inspector with a secret history of his own.
An unfolding jigsaw puzzle, told from different points-of-view and spanning over four decades, Daddy is an unforgettable excursion into the Mumbai underworld.
Daddy is political crime drama film co-written and directed by Ashim Ahluwalia. The film stars Arjun Rampal, who also co-wrote the film, portraying gangster-turned-politician Arun Gawli. It is presented by Kundalini Entertainment and Karta Entertainment. This flick also stars Farhan Akhtar in a key role.
Arjun, who was present at FICCI Frames 2017 along with director Ashim Ahluwalia, told the media, “Since Gawli is a gangster and politician and we are projecting the character as authentic as possible, shooting a major part in real location was risky. But we received huge support from Mumbai Police to shoot the film, they did not object.”
