The story of Darr revolves around a lovely girl named Kiran, played by Juhi, who is stalked by an obsessive lover named Rahul, played by Shah Rukh. 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. Sunny Deol is now occupied with the shooting of Pal Pal Dil Ke Paas, a film which he is directing. It was probably their first and last film together after which reports started surfacing that the two actors had a fallout and that Sunny also had a tiff with director Yash Chopra.

When asked if it was true that he hadn't spoken to Shah for 16 years, he said, "It's not that I didn't talk but I just cut myself off and I anyway don't socialise much".

An old interview of actor-politician Sunny Deol, in which he talked about a falling out with director Yash Chopra and co-star Shah Rukh Khan during the filming of 1993's Darr, went viral over the weekend after the interview was re-telecast by India TV. "So we never met, toh baat karne ki baat he nahi hai". Sunny Deol plays a navy officer in the film and he was reasoning with the filmmaker that since he is a trained commando, how can a normal boy beat him so easily. He can beat me if I can't see him. During the same, Sunny went on to explain Chopra that he was a fit character in the film because of his profession and that SRK can't stab him when he is looking at him.

Despite his attempts when Yash Chopra refused to listen, Sunny mentioned that he put his hands in his pocket to control his anger. "Soon, out of anger, I didn't even realise that I had ripped my trousers with my hands", Sunny concluded the topic as he said this. They loved Shah Rukh Khan as well. The actor said, "I guess, they must be scared because they were wrong". I always work in films with an open heart and believe the person. "Maybe that's the way they want to get their stardom", said Deol.
