Bollywood actor Arjun Rampal deserves all the accolades that are coming his way for his portrayal of the dreaded gangster – Arun Gawli.

While the real-life Gangster is safely locked away in jail, it looks like Arjun Rampal will walk away all the awards for Best Actor by the end of this year.

But, do you know the reason why a movie was conceptualized in the first place on Mumbai’s don turned politician? It was his grip on the Mumbai Underworld that made him a force to reckon with. And hence, Bollywood finally is milking the gangster’s glory for their own gain.

Here are some unknown facts that made Arun Gawli one of the most dreaded gangsters of Mumbai:

  1. Arun Gawli had completed Matriculation

Arun Gawli married Zubeida Mujawar, against the wishes of his own family and accomplices. Contrary to this image, Arun Gawli was quite a romantic by nature. She soon was known as the lady Don of Dagdi Chawl.

  1. Once upon a time friends

The infamous D-Gang and Gawli gang used to be friends, once upon a time, but soon fell apart due to unresolved conflicts. Rama Naik was finally killed in an encounter, supposedly engineered by the D-Gang.
