Kolkata: The West Bengal government was left red-faced on Sunday after Bollywood
actor Farhan Akhtar pointed out a “glarring error” to the WB’s Minister of School Education and Trinamool Congress leader Derek O’Brien.

Akhtar took to twitter to say that a major mistake was made in the depiction of legendary athlete Milkha Singh in a West Bengal textbook. Instead of the flying Sikh’s photo, the publisher used Farhan’s picture from the movie Bhaag Milkha Bhaag.

Farhan tagged the West Bengal’s Minister of School Education and Trinamool Congress
leader Derek O’Brien and urged that the books be recalled and replaced.

O’Brien assured immediate action on it.

The post has already garnered over 2.4 K likes and more than 600 retweets. The
people also gave reactions to the tweets.

“What were they thinking?” comments one Twitter user. “Maybe the publisher is just
a huge fan of yours,” says another.
