The gripping and intense trailer of Arjun Rampal's 'Daddy' is out.

Watch the trailer here:

Actor Arjun Rampal posed for a mug shot as mafia don Arun Gawli in a new poster of 'Daddy', announcing the film's release on July 21. A political crime drama film, "Daddy" is co-written and directed by Ashim Ahluwalia. A description of the movie reads in a statement: "The story is about Gawli, a man who scripted his own destiny, eventually going on to become one of India's most feared mobsters. Now, he remains an enigmatic figure; at once a volatile, power-hungry gangster for some and the venerated 'Daddy' or a modern day Robin Hood for the working-class neighbourhood he belongs to." It is narrated from multiple perspectives and spans over four decades.

Actor Arjun Rampal says his upcoming biopic on jailed gangster-turned-politician Arun Gawli is not an image-building exercise and steers clear of glorifying anything that is undesirable. The film, "Daddy", is based on Gawli (61), who is serving a life sentence in a murder case.

"We made it sure that this is not going to be a propaganda film around a character where you are going to be showing him as a good guy, or portraying him in a different image. It's not an image-building film. We were excited with his life and that's what we wanted to explore."

Arjun Rampal portrays the gangster-turned politician Arun Gawli as the titular 'Daddy' and flaunts long tresses, a beard and an intense look to play the part. The movie also features Farhan Akhtar and Aishwarya Rajesh.
