The Shah Rukh Khan starrer Darr is all set to be rebooted as a mini-series by Y-Films.  Darr 2.0 takes on the theme of cyberstalking.

After four hit shows, Y-Films goes bigger, darker and edgier with a reboot of the cult YRF thriller, Darr, in a contemporary avatar as a five part mini-series, Darr 2.0.

The series that has been written by Nikhil Taneja will be directed by Vikas Chandra and produced by Ashish Patil.

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. 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 & subscribers to send across their happy pictures and moments for its next promo but did not reveal any further information. Hundreds of personal and intimate pictures poured in, and some of those pictures are showcased in the first part of the teaser, the second part of which features an unidentified young man discreetly saving them on his computer. Giving the fans a virtual first hand experience of the safety risk they undertake each time they share their information online. Thus putting the fans at the center of the Darr 2.0 theme that has the tagline: “You have one new follower.”

The cast is yet to be announced but very exciting plans are in the pipeline. The five-part series will be out soon on the Y-Films channel.
