Produced by Eros International, the political crime drama has been co-written and directed by Ashim Ahluwalia.
'Daddy' is about a man who was for a long time associated with major kidnappings, extortions, contract killings and other major crimes in Mumbai. Arjun Rampal, who is also co-producer, will be seen playing the role of gangster-turned-politician Arun Gawli in the film. He flaunts long tresses, a beard and an intense look to play the part. The movie also features Farhan Akhtar and Aishwarya Rajesh.
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.
'Daddy' is set to release on July 21.
