Arjun Rampal on why he chose to play Arun Gawli
Arjun Rampal will be seen next playing gangster Arun Gawli in ‘Daddy’. The actor has recently spoken about why he’s taken up the character.
“Firstly, I am very intrigued by this genre. There are references to historical things and it’s fascinating. Arun Gawli, ganster-turned-politician, who was called Daddy, is the only person who didn’t leave the country like the rest did. We probed and researched on him. I think the incidents of his life make for a good story,” said Rampal, according to Mumbai Mirror.
Interestingly, he also revealed that he was approached by someone else for the same story previously, “Some people had come and approached me with the film and said that they had got the rights. It wasn’t a bad script but it didn’t excite me. I didn’t feel it was a true story. I asked them why they were diluting it by collating a few things and then putting an item song, too much action etc. I didn’t want to do something like that. I wanted to do something more intriguing”.
