The ongoing 50th International Film Festival of India (IFFI) in Goa made a major goof-up recently. The website of the festival mixed the picture of late filmmaker Satyajit Ray with Gulzar on film credit. The picture of the same is now going viral on social media.
In the homage section of the IFFI website, Ray’s film based on Henrik Ibsen’s play An Enemy of the People, Ganashatru is mentioned. While the credit for direction and the description for the 1989 film read fine, it carried a picture of Gulzar instead of Satyajit.
A user spotted the error and posted a screenshot online, which then went. The error has since been rectified.
Here’s the screenshot of the goof-up:
