‘Daddy’, a movie on the life of underworld don and politician Arun Gawli is the project for which Arjun Rampal is really working hard for. The film will be hitting the theatres on 21 July 2017. Filmmaker, Ashim Ahluwalia, revealed about what went into the transformation of Arjun Rampal.
He told, “Arjun just had to get a prosthetic nose to get the look right. So we got him a nose, cheek and forehead from Italy, based on the archival photographs.” He also added that the actor also went through an internal transformation. Talking about working with Arjun, Ashim revealed, “I’d never seen a film of Arjun’s, except parts of ‘Rock On’ when we began working. We got along following a commercial we shot together. He had a paranoia about me that `Is this guy going to be super art house’ and I was worried that `Is he going to turn hero on me’. But when I told him that he was going to wear clothes that I bought from Mahim for Rs 200 and sweat in prosthetic makeup for 14 hours a day, he just said, `OK let’s do it’ and then I was assured.“ He also said that he believes that Arjun has “not had great roles written for him.”
Well, it seems like a lot of hard work has gone into the making of the film and we cannot wait for it to hit the theaters.
