Serious mistake on recent  Cinema stamp

image image

Are these two photos of  the same person ???

This stamp featuring Bangla actor and director Dhirendranath Ganguli  from set of 50 stamps on 100 years of Cinema issued by India Post on 3 May 2013 bears a wrong picture of the person. The actual photo of Dhirendranath Ganguli is the second one. Mr Dipok Dey artist and noted philatelist of Kolkata points out the mistake clearly in the following picture.According to him  the person shown on the stamp is Bangla actor Robin  Majumdar.



The actual photo of Dhirendranath Ganguli is also available at http://www.dff.nic.in/dadasahebphalke.asp So definitely it is a blunder and India Post must apologize on its website for this mistake....In future India Post must take care while selecting photo and the contents of the info to be published in brochure of the concerned stamp !!
