To prep for the role, Arjun met Arun Gawli various times. Of their meetings, Arjun said, "I met him when he was out on parole. The first few times, he was slightly sceptical 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," adding that Arun Gawli is a God fearing and family man.
Arjun Rampal also said that he assured Arun Gawli that Daddy 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," the National-award winning actor said.
Daddy releases alongside Poster Boys, starring Sunny Deol, Bobby Deol and Shreyas Talpade.
