Arjun Rampal surprised everyone with his striking resemblance to gangster-turned-politician Arun Gawli when he revealed the first look of the movie "Daddy" on this week. Arjun features as the protagonist in the film, which is based on the life of Arun Gawli -- who created his own political party Akhil Bharatiya Sena in Maharashtra after living the life of a notorious gangster. The biopic gets its name from the fact that Maharashtrian locals, who admired and respected Gawli, called him 'Daddy'. The teaser begins with Arjun, dressed typically like a politician, being interrogated rigorously. Arjun tackles each question with the ease and calm, which looks nothing short of eerie.
The teaser is also punctuated with snippets of Arun Gawli's exploitation and heinous crimes ranging from murder to loot. Arun Gawli was convicted and jailed for a murder in 2012.
"Daddy" will be directed by Ashim Ahluwalia.
Last seen as a guitarist in "Rock On 2", Arjun Rampal will feature as a cop in this week's "Kahaani 2". Directed by Sujoy Ghosh, "Kahaani 2" also stars Vidya Balan.
