A week or so back Grady at Kaiju Shakedown posted news about an upcoming Bollywood remake of Don, a 1978 brownsploitation gangster film by Amitabh Bachchan - a film apparently considered a classic by a good many people in the know. Now, the interesting note on this to me isn't so much that the film is being remade but that, according to IndiaFM, this is the first official remake in the histroy of the Bollywood film industry. Not that Bollywood producers haven't cranked out stacks of remakes in the past, but this is the very first time that they have ever actually acknowledged their source and paid proper rights fees to do it legally.
