Juhi Chawla, Sunny Deol and Shah Rukh Khan starrer Darr, the 1993 psychological thriller, is one of the biggest blockbusters ever made. Directed by Yash Chopra under the banner of Yash Raj Films, the film is tagged as one of the director’s best projects over the years. Although the film was a success, it was reported that Sunny and SRK did not speak to each other for many years after the release.

In a recent interview, Sunny Deol was asked if SRK and Yash Chopra were scared of him on the sets. The actor said, “I guess, they must be scared because they were wrong.” He continued to share, “I was doing a scene in the film where Shah Rukh stabs me. I had a heated discussion with Yash Chopra regarding that scene. I tried explaining that I am a commando officer in the film, my character is an expert, I am very fit, then how can this boy (Shah Rukh's character in the film) beat me easily. He can beat me if I can't see him. If he can stab me while I am looking at him, then I won't be called a commando.”

Sunny also remembered how angry he got on the sets. He shared, “Since Yash ji was old, I respected him and couldn't say anything. I put my hands inside my pocket as I was very angry. Soon, out of anger, I didn't even realise that I had ripped my pants with my hands.”

When asked if the rumour that he didn’t speak to SRK for 16 years was true, he simply replied, “It's not that I didn't talk but I just cut myself off and I anyway don't socialise much. So we never met, toh baat karne ki baat he nahi hai.”

The story of Darr revolves around a beautiful girl named Kiran, played by Juhi, who is stalked by an obsessive lover named Rahul, played by Shah Rukh. Sunny Deol impressed the audience with his portrayal of Sunil, Kiran's boyfriend and a Navy-Marine Commando officer.


As a actor he never experiment, Refuse to play negative roles,Even Zoya approaced him first for the part played by Anil kapoor in Dil Dhadakne do,he refused to play Father's role..i mean how amazing he would be in the part..

That's how loosers talk

can you imagine any other famous villains for the role which SRK has played? srk has made the villain's role to Hero's with his romantic acting capabilities. Deewana, Anjaam, Ram Jaane are other examples. Not sure why Sunny was insecure with his role and by the way this is way back. Why now?????

Apparently sunny deol won the filmfare best supporting actor for darr n left it in the toilet! Lolololl

He is actually right in a way!

SRK looks like a wuss

The King is not scared of anyone

That was really bad what happened to Sunil. But he did get Damini which was a special appearance for which he got a National award. Chopra and Srk were probably scared of Sunny’s dhai kilo ka haath.

It’s not Sunil. It’s Sunny. Or Sunny PaJi

In fact Sunny Deol was offered either character because he was a big star at the time. He chose the "hero" because he thought that's where the audience faith lies. Did he even read the script if he had all these errors with the Sunil character?

Thank You Twinkle and Dimple for your insight.

And sridevi knows which character will work and asked for negative. And sunny doesn't want to experiment.
