Arjun Rampal’s most talked about and awaited film DADDY is based on the film of famous don Arun Gawli.
The makers unveiled the teaser and trailer of the film which was highly appreciated by audience.
The movie DADDY was set to hit the screens on July 21, however the film have been pushed ahead to September 8, 2017.
As per sources, “Geeta Gawli the daughter of gangster-politician Arun Gawli on whose life DADDY is based, met Arjun and requested him to push the release of the film to a later date. Finally the film which was scheduled to release on July 21 has been shifted to September 8, 2017.”
ARUN GAWLI AND ARJUN RAMPAL
DADDY is not just a film but an experience of a lifetime for Geeta. It is an emotional journey that the Gawli family has gone through over the last three years of the making the film. She is hopeful that Arun Gawli gets parole and may be able to come out and speak about the film with the audience. This would be extremely important to him as he's never given permission for his life story before.
Talking about her meeting with Arjun, Geeta says, 'I am really excited to show the film to everyone and I felt it would be special and auspicious to have the film release when my daddy was out on parole. I am really hoping that he gets parole at the time. I want the world to see the film and know the real daddy who has been our pillar of strength for so many years. I wanted them to release the film in September instead.”
Furthermore Geeta adds, “To see Daddy in person and on screen is very different. We cannot wait for the movie and are overwhelmed by the trailer. 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.”
Geeta feels that for her father it will also be auspicious to release DADDY in the midst of the Ganesh festival – an event that has been very close to Arun Gawli's heart. The entire Lalbaug area is renowned for the lavish and larger than life Ganesh pandals and pujas that the Gawlis have been a part of for many decades.
