Darr 1993, the story of a psycho lover by Yash Chopra is one of the most loved films of its time starring Sunny Deol, Shahrukh Khna and Juhi Chawla. Though Sunny Deol was the main lead of the movie but all the limelight did fell into Shahrukh’s kitty. That offended Sunny because Sunny by then was a star and Shahrukh was just a new comer. But King Khan stole the show and the movie was till then the best performance of SRK but There were reports of a rift between Khan and Deol during the shoot of Darr.
Actor Sunny Deol was recently on the show “Aap Ki Adalat”, hosted by Rajat Sharma, has said that he didn’t speak to Shah Rukh Khan for 16 years after their much publicised tiff on the sets of the 1993 film Darr. Sunny said that people on set were afraid of him, ‘because they were wrong’.
He also further said that he was never told that Shah Rukh’s character – an obsessive stalker – would be glorified in the film.
He said, “At the end of the day, people loved me in the film. They loved Shah Rukh Khan as well. My only issue with the film was that I did not know they would glorify the villain. I always work in films with an open heart and believe the person. I believe working with trust. Unfortunately, we have many actors and stars who don’t function in this manner. Maybe that’s the way they want to get their stardom.”
Sunny had disagreements with director Yash Chopra as well. He had told Filmfare in an interview then, “I’ll never work with Yash Chopra again. He isn’t a man of his words. I don’t have good memories about him, he betrayed my faith in him.”
