Zee News is coming up with a programme based upon true stories of the underworld. ‘Don’ will showcase the people involved and the modus operandi in running a parallel world that exists and flourishes out of Mumbai. The programme, to air on 9.30 pm today, will give an insight into the journey of some ordinary people who made ‘dangerously’ big in this unaccounted business.

Famous actor Irfaan Khan will anchor the show. On donning the role of an anchor in the programme, Irfaan said, “It was exciting to relive the lives of the real Don instead of the reel Don. For the first time such a well-researched programme on this subject is coming up on television. I am proud to be associated with Zee News and the show.”

Commenting on the occasion, Mr. Harish Doraiswamy, CEO, Zee News Ltd. said, “There is a world of difference between a real life Don and a reel life Don. We are putting the history of the underworld in a proper perspective.”

The programme will showcase the yet unrevealed innermost secrets of the dreaded dons- about how they planned and executed some of the biggest crimes in history. All these insights are provided by their family members and kinsmen first hand.

These stories will also take a perspective from their sharp shooters who used to protect them, the drivers who used to listen to the Don's most intimate conversations, and their bodyguards who were their shadow at all times. In addition, it will show some important confessions by senior police officials, who faced the wrath of these Dons but finally triumphed by driving them out of their dens.
