The Indian film industry was lucky to have a visionary like Satyajit Ray. His movie was beyond brilliance and a talent like him is hard or probably impossible to find these days. So what happens when you mistake an icon like him for someone else? Well, it's an error that can't be ignored. We can still understand it millennials commit this big blunder but when the official website of the International Film Festival of India does this goof-up, it's beyond any explanation.

Speaking about goof-up, IFFI website committed a blunder when they used ace lyricist Gulzar's picture for Satyajit Ray. His 1989 Bengali classic Ganashatru, is one of the movies to be screened at the film festival this year. IFFI's official website which has a catalogue of all the films being screened used Gulzar's picture instead of Satyajit Ray while describing him as the director of this classic. It's clearly embarrassing on IFFI's part to confuse two legends of the Indian film industry with each other. We wonder if the website has made the necessary changes after their goof-up went viral on the internet.
