In a recent interview with news agency IANS, Arjun Rampal said that he wouldn't have acted in the film if he had failed the look-test.
"Getting the look right was very important for me. I wouldn't have done Daddy as an actor if I failed the look-test. So after the writing was done, the scary part came -- the look test. I told Ashim (Ahluwalia) that if my look-test is miserable, I will still produce the film, Ashim will still direct it, and we will get another actor who would look like Arun Gawli," IANS quoted Arjun Rampal as saying.
"I am playing a real life character, so the first thing for me was to look like him. I did not go to the gym for two years and stopped lifting weight to lose 20 kg, as I had muscle. For the character, I had to look thin. Such physical transformation along with the production design through which Ashim created the world of Arun Gawli. It helped me as a performer," he added.
Daddy was supposed to release on July 21. However, the release date of the film was postponed and it will now hit the theatres on September 8.
