Remember when Shah Rukh Khan burst onto the Bollywood scene? He did obsessive lover roles so well that girls immediately fell head-over-heels for him and turned him from a villain into a superstar. Well, some actor will get to try a hand at SRK’s iconic role from his hit movie ‘Darr’.
The original ‘Darr: A Violent Love Story’ starred Sunny Deol, Juhi Chawla and Shah Rukh Khan. It showed how obsessive love not only makes no sense but can also go on to ruin others’ lives.
Produced by Y-Films (an offshoot of YRF), ‘Darr 2.0’ will feature the original characters of Rahul, Kiran and Sunil, but the story will be set in the present-day world. The reboot will be aired as a five-part mini-series, and is directed by Vikas Chandra.
The series aims to highlight the unsafe world of online privacy invasion, social media harassment and cyber stalking, which if unchecked can destroy people’s lives.
