Hi,

This issue has nothing to do with the subscription to IMDbPro or not. It is apparently a simple case of homonymy.

Please help to be helped: please provide at least the link to your name page and the conflicting one, along with the 18 digit ID of your submissions.
It would also help if you could detail the titles which are yours and/or the ones which are not. I understand that you have shot the 2 above mentioned titles only, and the other ones belong to other person with the same name. Can you please confirm that my understanding is correct?

Hi Vincent , This is my account https://www.imdb.com/name/nm9758326/
here only KAHANI 2 AND ROMEO AKBAR WALTER I should be credited with as DOP . REST OF THEM doesn't belong to me . As assistant camera I worked on KAMINEY WHICH is there on my account but its also credited to the other person. 
My alternate name is TAPAN TUSHAR BASU . Hope this helps .

Hi, Tapan Tushar Basu.

I think this page of yours:
https://www.imdb.com/name/nm9758326
includes credits of another person:
https://www.imdb.com/name/nm1206403
that need also be examined if there are any credits of yours.

Moreover, both pages mentioned may mistakenly include credits of 1-2 other person(s) having similar names. Please inform here if there are any your credits on IMDb that are not the part of your main profile.

PS: my post is additional to Vincent's (I see now), just written at the same time.

Kaminey (2009) is going to be moved into your profile soon. 

The credits that do not belong to you but are in your profile -- those would be better processed by IMDb staff, I think.

Hi Tapan -

Your two credits have now been moved to your correct, separate IMDb page: https://www.imdb.com/name/nm10628455/

If there are any outstanding credits for you listed on the site under a different name page, please let us know and we can then take another look.

Hi Michelle ,
Thank you for moving my credits and making different page . My name is Tapan Basu  its mentioned Tapan Bose . Also if you look at the the previous page linkhttps://www.imdb.com/name/nm9758326/?ref_=nv_sr_1?ref_=nv_sr_1 
it has my official website www.tapanbasu.com and date of birth and my alternate name as Tapan Tushar Basu . 
in camera department  I had the credit of assistant camera and B camera operator for the movie Kaminey   . 
In  another similar name account the other person is credited with the movie Kaminey . How to fix this ?  can you take out the date of birth , official website and alternate an nickname from the above one and put in this new one AND fix my name to TAPAN BASU . Thank you very much .

This is the other similar name personhttps://www.imdb.com/name/nm1206403/?ref_=nv_sr_4?ref_=nv_sr_4, he is credited fro KAMINEY AND RAGHU RAI  - UNFRAMED PORTRAIT ( Additional cinematography ) WHICH SHOULD BE ADDED TO MINE .

Hi Tapan -

Thanks for reporting the additional data issues, the changes have all been made (name correction, moved applicable credits, birthdate, and nickname) and these changes should be live on the site shortly.  Cheers!
