I’m sure half of India knew this already but it is only now that I’ve learnt this. Apparently the Tamil movie Billa starring Rajnikanth is a scene by scene remake of the Amitabh-starrer Don. Both of which were superhits of course. Don was made in 1978, Billa in 1980. In 2007, Don was remade in Hindi with Shah Rukh Khan as Don. It was a super hit of course.
