For this, the team got in contact with his family, friends, rivals, and even the police to understand his life and know why he has been called ‘daddy’. He also clarified that the story isn’t glorifying Arun but presents a real story with various points of view which will help the audience to explore the crime world of Mumbai in the 80s. It was itself a journey to get in his shoe like mirroring his gestures to get his correct point of view.
Daddy World Television Premiere
The movie has been set in the backdrop of the 70s and takes the audience through Dagdi Chawl alleys where many youths including Arun Gawli, were unemployed due to the shutdown of mills and thus they opted to gamble to earn money as quickly as possible. With due course of time, Gawli was trapped in various crimes when he came under the wings of Maqsood Bhai after committing a murder. However, due to the clash in their ideologies and power, the two became rivals.
Later on the request of his wife Zubeidaa, Arun decided to leave the criminal profession and come out clean. However, things changed when his partner Rama gets killed in an encounter and Gawli took charge of their gang. His excursion into the Mumbai underworld unfolds a series of twists and turns which eventually led him to step in politics and become ‘Daddy’ (a messiah) for his followers.
