He added that the movie’s title sounds “much like the brand of undergarment in a popular market.” However, thanks to the popularity of Godfather series, this word ‘Don’ "received enough publicity," said Amitabh.

Talking about Don, the movie revolves around Vijay, a Bombay slum-dweller who looks like the powerful criminal Don. Don later dies in a police chase, and DSP D'Silva is the only one who knows about his death. To track down the root of the criminal organization, D'Silva trains Vijay to become Don.

The film was helmed by Chandra Barot, produced by Nariman Irani, and was written by Salim-Javed. It also stars Zeenat Aman, Iftekhar, Pran, Om Shivpuri, Helen, Pinchoo Kapoor, and Satyen Kappu.
