Prominent in the field of arts and literature, Satyajit Ray is a name that comes to everyone’s mind when we talk about the rich history of Indian films. Not just a director but a fine composer, screenwriter and artist Ray is one of the biggest names in the industry.

Similarly, Sampooran Singh Kalra or Gulzar, as he is fondly known, is an Oscar-winning Indian film director, poet and lyricist known for his soulful composition of songs.

Times Now

It is not everyday that we see people getting confused between the two most renowned figures of Indian cinema. 

But that’s exactly what happened at the 50th edition of the International Film Festival of India (IFFI). 

The Week

The goof-up happened in the official IFFI website’s catalogue for one of Ray’s films, Ganashatru

Being one of the movies to be screened during the festival, the bio for the director at the bottom of the catalogue had Gulzar’s photo instead of Ray’s. 

Twitterati was quick to notice the goof-up. 

An embarrassing low for the International Film Festival of India. Something that they must apologize for.
