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.
It is not everyday that we see people getting confused between the two most renowned figures of Indian cinema.
In all its glory, The International Film Festival of India in it’s 50th year has given Satyajit Ray a special makeover.#IFFI2019 pic.twitter.com/FIqsDooU0u— Parth MN (@parthpunter) November 21, 2019
Twitterati was quick to notice the goof-up.

Coincidental that the make-over is Gulzar. At a film festival in Mumbai (psst, you’d know which) a TV reporter accosted him with “sir, sir, please one minute”, took his byte, then asked “sir, may I know your good name” 🤦🏽♀️— smruti (@smrutibombay) November 21, 2019
The good named man smiled and walked away.

Satyajit Sampooran Singh Ray.— Raja Sen (@RajaSen) November 22, 2019
Incredible. I fear the IFFI may have misspelt its own name. This year, it’s clearly IFFY.

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