Dobaara was earlier planned for a May 2nd 2017 release in India, however it was later changed to June 2nd 2017. The film is directed by Prawaal Raaman who has earlier directed Indian films such as Gayab, 404 Error Not Found, Darling, and Main aur Charles, which was loosely based on serial killer Charles Sobhraj. Mike Flanagan is credited as the original writer and executive producer of the Bollywood Version (as per Wikipedia).
Flanagan is currently busy with Stephen King adaptation Gerald’s Game and soon to be announced The Haunting of Hill House. In the meanwhile, Dobaara not only borrows the film’s plot, but also the poster and the tagline.. See Your Evil!
