[Image: screenshot_www_televisionpost_com_2016_08_31_09.jpg]MUMBAI: Youth entertainment studio Y-Films is launching a reboot of the cult YRF romantic thriller ‘Darr’, which had Shah Rukh Khan, Sunny Deol and Juhi Chawla in lead roles, in a contemporary avatar as a five part mini-series, ‘Darr 2.0’.

‘Darr 2.0’, which is the fifth original Y-Films series, 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 and 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.

This gives fans a virtual first-hand experience of the safety risk they undertake each time they share their information online, thus putting them at the centre of the ‘Darr 2.0’ theme that has the tagline: “You have one new follower.”

‘Darr 2.0’ is directed by Vikas Chandra, a Sundance Screenwriters Lab Fellow and associate creative producer on YRF’s ‘Detective Byomkesh Bakshy’ and produced by Y-Films head Ashish Patil. The story is by Nikhil Taneja, with screenplay and dialogues written by Shubham Yogi and Taneja. The five-part series will be out soon on the Y-Films channel.

Y-Films has amassed over 65 million views over four series, one short film anthology and one pop music group.

Y-Films has dealt with content that is both entertaining and socially relevant, be it sex education (‘Sex Chat with Pappu & Papa’), LGBT rights (‘6-Pack Band’) or gender equality (‘Man’s World’).
