Actor Arjun Rampal says the audience can expect a "good film" with Daddy, which delves into the life of the Big Daddy of the Mumbai, mafia Arun Gawli.
Arjun essays gangster Gawli's part in the movie, directed by Ashim Ahluwalia.
Arjun, along with the film's leading lady Aishwarya Rajesh, attended Gawli's daughter Yogita's Kara Foundation social initiative on Friday in Dagdi chawl, the area the gangster dominanted.
"I want to congratulate Kara Foundation for their impressive initiative. I am happy to be here. I have a special connection with Dagdi chawl. I have received so much love from Dagdi chawl. I feel, we have made good film on 'daddy' (Arun Gawli).
"I am thankful to the Gawli family for having faith in us and allowing us to make film on Daddy. Aishwarya has played the role of Asha Gawli (Arun Gawli's wife) in the film and she has done very good job with it," he added.
Aishwaya Rajesh, known for featuring in Tamil and Malayalam movies, is making her Bollywood debut with Daddy.
"I have played Asha tai's (Asha Gawli) in the film. I hope that I have done some justice to it and Asha tai and Arun Gawli like it.
"I am thankful to Arjun for introducing me in Hindi film industry. I have done some good films in Tamil and Malayalam cinema. I promised that maybe in the next two, three months, I will learn to speak good Hindi to work more in Hindi films," she said.
Daddy is presented by Kundalini Entertainment. It is releasing on September 8.
