Today is Uday Chopra’s birthday. I was looking for one of his songs to post as Song of the Day and I found this video. I had seen this video once long time back. Here they are talking about the movie Darr and Uday reveals Dead Calm as the inspiration for Darr.
Yash Chopra also says that Aamir had signed Darr and that there was a mahurat too but then Aamir declined to do the role because his fans, friends, relatives advised him against doing a negative role.
Now some of you might know that I was involved in a discussion on NG sometime back regarding Darr on this very topic. Sunny is supposed to have been very angry during the making of Darr as SRK was being given preferential treatment. But what’s funny is that Sunny (voice over) saying he enjoyed working in the movie and that it was like a picnic. Now I think this was from the Making of Darr which was telecast on Doordarshan back then before the release of the movie. May be he was paid to say that but its really funny when seen in context of his later interviews. Ths Sunny Deol voiceover is at 4 min 55 sec.Tags: Aditya Chopra Darr Dead Calm Hrithik Roshan Interviews Juhi Chawla Shah Rukh Khan Sunny Deol Uday Chopra Yash Chopra
