Hina revisited Madhuri’s ‘Anjaam’ and Juhi’s ‘Darr’ to prepare for Hacked

Hacked is based on the horrors of technology: Vikram BhattMumbai, Feb 3 (IANS) Actress Hina Khan revisited Madhuri Dixit Nene”s “Anjaam” and Juhi Chawla”s “Darr” to prepare for her role in the upcoming film “Hacked”, which explores the dark side of stalking on social media.

“I have obviously watched them earlier but I was rediscovering the films. It spoke to me as to how and what one goes through psychologically or emotionally when people take to bullying. From Juhi”s character, I was able to grasp the arc of how a woman goes from free-spirited to fearful.

“I needed to create a similar transition and these films broke down the emotions for me simply. I am glad I had it as a reference point. Juhi Chawla and Madhuri Dixit”s strong performances helped me in honing my own performance. There are no direct similarities between those films and ours, I only drew from their performances,” Hina said.

In both “Anjaam” and “Darr”, Shah Rukh Khan played the antihero, as a stalker obsessed with the heroine.

“Hacked” is directed by Vikram Bhatt, and the film also stars Rohan Shah and Mohit Malhotra.
