Arjun Rampal-starrer ‘Daddy’ gets postponed, to release in September


The teaser and trailer of actor Arjun Rampal’s upcoming film ‘Daddy’ has garnered a good response and roused enough curiosity amongst moviegoers. This film is a biopic on former gangster and politician Arun Gawli where Arjun would be seen playing the titular role. But there’s a sad news for the ones who are waiting to watch the film on the big screen. The latest report related to this film is that the release date of it has been postponed. The film was slated to hit the screens in the month of July. However, it has now been postponed for a September release.

The reason behind postponing this film is that Arun Gawli’s daughter Geeta Gawli wants her father to speak about the film. Currently, Arun Gawli is in jail and might come out on a parole in the month of September.

Therefore, Geeta met Arjun recently, regarding the same. Talking about this meeting, she revealed “I am really excited to show the film to everyone and I felt it would be special and auspicious to have the film released 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.” [sic]

“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 three 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,” added Geeta Gawli.

Geeta even feels that for her father it will also be very auspicious to release ‘Daddy’ in the midst of the Ganesh Chaturthi 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.

Talking about the film, ‘Daddy’ also stars Aishwarya Rajesh and Nishikant Kamat playing pivotal roles.

Directed by Ashim Ahluwalia, the film is now slated to release on September 8, 2017.
