Don is a Bollywood movie in 1978. Amitabh Bachchan starred in a dual role in this movie. When the writers Javed Akhtar and Salim Khan penned this story no one expected that the same story would become a subject for 8 movies. After watching the super success of Don, N.T.R was interested to remake this movie in Telugu with the name Yugandhar.
His plan worked and it became a block buster in Telugu also. Rajnikanth has acted in Tamil version. Tamil version was released with the name Billa. It has taken Rajnikanth’s fame high sky in Tamilnadu. Sobhraj is the Malayalam version which featured Mohanlal in the lead role.
28 years later Javed Aktar’s son Farhan Akhtar directed Don again in Hindi with Shah Rukh Khan. This time also it was a hit. Recently in Telugu and Tamil remake versions were released. Tamil movie featured Ajit in lead role. And Telugu version featured Prabhas in lead role. The last one is the only failure for this story.
This story became a subject for Hollywood producers also.
