In his blog, Bachchan shared an interesting trivia, writing that when the movie's director Chandra Barot and writers Salim-Javed revealed the film's title, no distributor was willing to accept it, as "they all thought it to be named after the DAWN underwear...a popular brand during those times."
He also added that Hollywood movie Godfather was "making a mark in films circles" at that time.
Big star cast and iconic music made 'Don' a superhit
Starring Bachchan in a dual role in the backdrop of the Mumbai underworld, Don gained a huge popularity and was a superhit at the box office.
The film also starred Zeenat Aman, Pran, Iftekhar, Mac Mohan, Helen, and Pinchoo Kapoor, among others.
Apart from iconic dialogs, the movie is loved for its memorable tracks such as Khaike Pan Banaraswala and Yeh Hai Bombay Nagaria.
