How do I remove film that is wrongly in my credit? It is directed by someone else, who has the same name as of mine. I directed only "Aroni Tokhon", not "Biporjoy".(https://www.imdb.com/name/nm9080885) And also I wrote and produced the film "IN SEARCH OF SHANKAR" https://www.imdb.com/name/nm8397691/. Please correct this and if you need any documentation let me know. And can you please tell me, how can I claim for this page.

Hi, Sourav Chakraborty. To accomplish what you seek in the least number of steps, please begin a filmography correction on Chakraborty, Sourav (III) and move the Biporjoy director filmography item to Chakraborty, Sourav (II), and then claim Chakraborty, Sourav (II).

Hi Jeorj,
Thanks for the information, but I already requested IMDB to delete the credit for BIPORJOY, but still they have not corrected.
It has been more than 48 hours, and didn't get any reply unfortunately.
Do you know any other way to remove except this or can you please suggest, what exactly should I do, if they have not responded yet?
Thanks

Sourav,

I don't think the entry should be deleted, but should rather be transferred to the other person if you are unclaiming it.

For your submission outcome, please check https://contribute.imdb.com/contribut....
If it is rejected, IMDb will state why.

When you see information in a place where it does not belong, please try to move it to the correct place within a single submission, rather than deleting anything. Otherwise, submit a matching addition to the correct place in one submission, take note of the 18-digit reference number, and then submit a deletion from the incorrect place, taking care to include that number in the explanation field along with insights as to what the overall changes to be made are.

The estimated date for correcting my error was 14th January and now it is 16th, still its pending.
What I want to do is, add my name to "IN SEARCH OF SHANKAR" and also to "ARONI TOKHON" and to remove "BIPORJOY". Still can't understand, how it to explain the IMDB,

Sourav Chakraborty, The idea is to get the filmography references/hyperlinks to Aroni Tokhon and In Search of Shankar in one place. That can be accomplished by moving the Aroni Tokhon director credit from Chakraborty, Sourav (III) to Chakraborty, Sourav (II), and then leaving Chakraborty, Sourav (III) alone in acknowledgement that it is not an IMDb name page about you at all. Understand? The instructions for how to do this are lengthy but not really all that complicated.

Once your name page is clear of the other credits (thanks Jeorj) then to claim your page you will need an IMDbPro subscription and to follow the steps on https://help.imdb.com/article/imdbpro/manage-your-imdb-page/how-do-i-claim-my-imdb-page/GXWAJBBV8EVP...

Alert, Sourav Chakraborty! In case you did not notice, my initial instructions are actually partially mixed up, so I must apologize and restate them...

To accomplish what you seek in the least number of steps, please begin a filmography correction on Chakraborty, Sourav (III) and move the Aroni Tokhon director filmography item (not the Biporjoy director filmography item) to Chakraborty, Sourav (II).

I guess, I should wait for few more days, and if they don't change, I will request again.

Now, they separated it. 
Now Aroni Tokhon has the other Sourav Chakraborty.
It worked

Sourav Chakraborty, right, but Aroni Tokhon and In Search of Shankar still need to be in the same place. So, now there are several different ways to sort the remainder of the problem out. There is also still the question of whether somebody (different from you) with the same name as you is credited as the director of Biporjoy or not.

Hi Jeorj,
I can't understand that, they show my request has been approved but still they have not merged "IN SEARCH OF SHANKAR" and "ARONI TOKHON"

Hi Sourav,

Your name page can be found here, with both credits correctly attached. That is the page you'll want to claim with your Pro membership. I've submitted a merge for the additional page Sourav Chakraborty (III) on your behalf since this page has duplicated and incomplete information. You previously were adding and deleting credits on pages rather than merging them. If you run in to this situation in the future, you can follow the directions Jeorj has outlined above to merge the name pages. 

Cheers!
