A one-night special feature presentation of Don will be held soon with Zeenat Aman present.
To mark 45 years of the celebrated action thriller film Don, the film’s female lead Zeenat Aman has joined hands with not-for-profit organization, Film Heritage Foundation and brought the film back to the big screen in an exclusive one-night-only live event in Mumbai. Titled Zeenat Aman Rewind To Don, the event will see a special screening of the classic and see Zeenat talk about her experiences and her career.
Directed by Chandra Barot, Don was released on May 12, 1978, and was a huge hit. The film sparked several remakes, including ones starring Rajinikanth, NT Rama Rao, and Mohanlal among others. A Hindi reboot starring Shah Rukh Khan spawned a franchise, which will soon return to screens with Ranveer Singh taking over the role.
Zeenat Aman Rewind To Don will be hosted on September 29 at the 1000-seater majestic Regal Cinema in Mumbai’s Colaba. The presentation will feature not just a 3-hour screening of the restored version of the original landmark film but will also witness Zeenat Aman engage in an evening of conversation about her life and career with filmmaker Shivendra Singh Dungarpur, over a 30-minute moderated session.
Shivendra Singh Dungarpur, Filmmaker and Director, Film Heritage Foundation, says, “It is my honour and a dream come true to present a special screening of Don in conversation with the one and only Zeenat Aman. When we screened Don at the Bachchan Back to the Beginning festival last year, the audience fell in love with Roma all over again. Her tremendous charisma and her aura of grace and sensuality is timeless and it is no wonder that she continues to be a star today.”
Zeenat Aman adds, “Film Heritage Foundation is doing such incredible work to preserve and give our classic films a second life in cinemas. I am so happy to be presenting the special screening of Don with Shivendra Singh Dungarpur of Film Heritage Foundation and looking forward to our conversation.”
Last year, Film Heritage curated a nationwide four-day film festival titled Bachchan Back To The Beginning on the occasion of the legendary actor’s 80th birthday that featured screenings of restored versions of more than 10 of his landmark films including Don.
