Arjun, who has done all kinds of roles in Bollywood, has attempted to do a biopic for the first time. He shares his experience of meeting Arun Gawli, the ‘Daddy’.

I met him when he was out on parole. The first few times, he was slightly skeptical and I understood that he’s reserved because of his colourful past. What I found interesting was that people called him Daddy. Usually they refer to a don as Bhai or Don. I realised that although dreaded, he had another side which intrigued me.

Arjun Rampal on getting to know Arun Gawli.

He’s not flamboyant, doesn’t go to dance bars and blow up money on bar girls and mistresses. He’s spent half his life in jail but is a god-fearing, family man. One thing that stood out in his meeting with Gawli is the fact that despite the menacing image and the fact that he was part of the underworld, he was a god-fearing man. He didn’t fear the cops or the rival gangs, but he definitely had a fear of God. At home, there are photographs of gods everywhere, he is always praying. After a few meetings, he started opening up to me. I assured him that it wouldn’t be a propaganda story, I wanted to tell it the way it is, in a realistic manner. His consent convinced me this was a man with self-confidence.
