Shah Rukh Khan in Darr

Bollywood superstar Shah Rukh Khan’s film Darr is getting a facelift as a five-part mini series, Darr 2.0.

The Yash Raj Films 1993 cult thriller had catapulted Khan into fame for his portrayal of an obsessive lover in Darr. The film also starred Juhi Chawla and Sunny Deol in lead roles.

Darr 2.0 will feature the characters of Rahul, Kiran and Sunil from the original but in an entirely new milieu, weaved in a modern, original tale of obsession and fear in the age of cyber stalking and digital crimes. According to the producer, the series holds a mirror to the perilous environment of online privacy invasion and social media harassment that can take a dangerous and disturbing turn, if unchecked.

To demonstrate the risks of voluntarily releasing too much information on the internet, Y-Films asked its fans, followers and subscribers to send across their happy pictures and moments for its next promo but did not reveal any further information.

The fifth original Y-Films series, Darr 2.0 is directed by Vikas Chandra, a Sundance Screenwriters Lab fellow and Associate Creative Producer of YRF’s Detective Byomkesh Bakshy, and produced by Ashish Patil.
