Hello, Desh. 

Could you, please, specify what credits on your page are not correct?

I am listed as the director of a movie Jahan Tum Le Chalo (1999) and a character of Collector in the movie Makdee (2002). These are some other Desh Deepak's credits. I want to get rid of it. My page link is http://www.imdb.com/name/nm1802095/

I have submitted the updates needed and they hopefully will be evident in 48 hours or less.

Should you ever encounter this problem again, you can try correct it yourself, by accessing the credits and correcting them by inserting "Dash, Deepak (II)" and ticking the right field.

It is "Desh", not "Dash". I tried doing it myself on IMDb Pro but it didn't happen.

Sorry, a typing error on my part, the separate page for an individual who is not you will be "Deepak, Desh (II)".

Thank you so much Meredith. One more query. I had put some extra pictures of mine with the help of IMDB Pro and those pictures started reflecting. But now they are gone. How can that be done?
P.S.: In the search bar, it is still showing the wrong credits!!!

Hi Desh,

I've confirmed that the changes to your credits have now been updated and are reflecting correctly in the search.

Regarding your photos, it appears that the IMDbPro membership claiming your page has expired. When your membership expires, the photos you've uploaded via IMDbPro are removed from the page. For more information regarding what happens when your IMDbPro membership is cancelled, please visit our Help page here.

Let us know if we can offer any further help.

Hi Desh,

An active IMDbPro membership is required to maintain photos on your IMDb page at this time. For more information, please visit our Help page here.

Thanks for your understanding.

Okay thank you Claire. I believe most of the people who we see on IMDb are not IMDbPro members but many have more than one picture. Just wanted to understand how you people maintain about their details. Is it because of their continuous work on screen or some other reason?

Hi Desh,

Some of the other individuals on IMDb with photos on their pages may have IMDbPro memberships managed by their representatives (agents, managers, publicists, etc.), while others may have production stills or event photos for their photos, provided by studios and press tagged with their name.

Let us know if we can offer any further help.

Hi there!!! You guys helped me almost a year ago to correct my credits but the same thing happened again. There are two more pages by my name now. Please help merge all these into one.
My original page - https://www.imdb.com/name/nm1802095/?ref_=nv_sr_1
New credit (as a different page currently) - https://www.imdb.com/name/nm9960882/?ref_=nv_sr_2
Another new credit (as a different page currently) - https://www.imdb.com/name/nm10292226/?ref_=nv_sr_7

Also i need to add more credits to my name related to the movie Pataakha - https://www.imdb.com/title/tt8396128/?ref_=nm_knf_t1

I was the CASTING ASSOCIATE (credited) and ASSISTANT DIRECTOR (credited) on the same project.

Hi Desh,

Thanks for your post.

Just a quick note, in the future - if you experience issues I would recommend posting a new thread altogether. Old conversations often get lost and are not seen by users willing to help out.

Moving onto the issue mentioned, you can merge these name pages together yourself into a single listing and I would recommend learning the process as this looks to be a re-occurring issue! See the guide here on how to merge pages:

https://help.imdb.com/article/contribution/names-biographical-data/how-can-i-combine-two-imdb-filmog...#

As for the credits, you can see instructions on how to update your filmography here:

https://help.imdb.com/article/contribution/filmography-credits/adding-filmography-credits/GAB5B33MBL...#

Please let us know if you have any further issues.
