In a goof up, the International Film Festival of India (IFFI) attached veteran lyricist-poet Gulzar’s picture instead of legendary filmmaker Satyajit Ray’s in the director’s biography of Ganashatru on its official website.
The screenshot of the webpage of the homage section of IFFI website, featuring Gulzar’s picture as the director of the 1989 Bengali film went viral on social media on Friday.
However, soon after reports of the mix up started doing the rounds, the festival organisers rectified the mistake.
Satyajit Sampooran Singh Ray.
Incredible. I fear the IFFI may have misspelt its own name. This year, it’s clearly IFFY.

The festival will conclude on November 28.
