DADDY CELEB REVIEW: FROM FARHAN AKHTAR TO HUMA QURESHI, HERE IS WHAT BOLLYWOOD HAD TO SAY ABOUT ARJUN RAMPAL'S BIOPIC ON ARUN GAWLI



The much-awaited biopic on gangster-turned-politician Arun Gawli, starring Arjun Rampal and Aishwarya Rajesh, hit the theatres on September 8.

The film, directed by Ashim Ahluwalia, had great expectations riding on it. Following the film's teasers, Arjun's recounting of his meeting with Gawli and videos showing how the film was shot amidst many troubles, B-Town celebrities and fans had been looking forward to the film.

Making the film was an uphill task from the beginning, with Arjun facing the uphill task of portraying one of Mumbai's most feared gangsters.
Gawli, who is serving a life sentence for the murder of a Shiv Sena politician, did not welcome the idea initially. However, Arjun and Ashim clarified that the film will not be made without 'Daddy's green signal. Gawli's stronghold in Mumbai was the Dagdi Chawl in Byculla, a colony of seven buildings that houses families. The gangster-turned-politician's family still lives there.

Arjun Rampal was last seen in the Vidya Balan starrer 'Kahaani 2', which released in December last year. Ashim Ahluwalia, on the other hand, directed narrative feature film Miss Lovely, which was premiered at the 2012 Cannes Film Festival.

Here are some of the reactions of Bollywood celebrities to the biopic:
