When asked if he felt this project is risky Arjun said, “There are risks in all kinds of films. If people didn’t take risks then only one kind of film would have been made. But the film isn’t just made for box office it is made for the audience. What I wanted was Arun Gawli’s family to like the film. More importantly, I want Arun Gawli to like this film because it’s based on him.”
He further added, “Whoever has worked on this project should like the film, should feel satisfied with the outcome. When you feel that satisfaction within your crew and cast that’s when you should release the film to the audience. Until it is there you should keep working towards it. we all had that feeling of satisfaction after finishing the film.”
Aishwarya Rajesh who plays Arjun’s wife in the film was asked how it feels to for Daddy to be her first film she said, “If this wouldn’t be my first film I probably wouldn’t be this happy. Being a part of Daddy makes me feel really proud. I learned a lot from Arjun while working on this film. He has been in the industry for 16 years and I am nothing if compared to him. But he supported me throughout the film.”
Aishwarya also spoke about how Arjun is a risk taker she said, “He loves taking risks he obviously could have bagged any other movie but he decided to do Daddy he could have also cast a bigger celeb for my role but he gave me the chance and that’s what I think Arjun is all about.”
When asked if Arjun is nervous for the release as a producer and actor he said, “I think it is necessary to have expectations if we make a film that nobody expects anything from it then what’s the use. When there is expectation automatically there is responsibility. It’s not like we have made a typical film, it’s a different film. So there is slight nervousness regarding if people will understand it and appreciate it and how they will react.”
