Shah Rukh Khan’s Darr gets rebooted as a web series
September 1, 2016 07:59 PM NPT
Shah Rukh Khan’s 1993 thriller ‘Darr’, in which he played an obsessed lover, is being updated into a five-part mini-series dealing with cyber-stalking. Y-Films, a division of Yash Raj Films that made the original ‘Darr’, will run the series on their YouTube channel. They have released a teaser of the show.
Kiran, the object of Shah Rukh Khan’s obsession in the film, and Sunil, the man she actually loves, will both appear on ‘Darr 2.0’ but the teaser features only Rahul, face not shown, who lurks in a darkened room snipping and editing photos of women from their Facebook pages. Khan’s iconic dialogue “I love you K...K...K...Kiran,” and the song ‘Jadoo Teri Nazar’ play in the background.
‘Darr 2.0’ hasn’t been cast yet and the multitude of photos used in the teaser are of Yash Raj’s followers and subscribers who were asked to send pictures of themselves but not told to what end. Whether or not Shah Rukh Khan will make an appearance, or even his co-stars Juhi Chawla and Sunny Deol, are questions we’d all like to see answered.
‘Darr 2.0’ is Y-Films’ fifth web-series after ‘Man’s World’, ‘Bang Baaja Baaraat’, ‘Love Shots’ and ‘Ladies Room’.
