Director Kalpana Lajmi always felt her uncle Guru Dutt was not given the respect he deserved while was alive.
On the evening of October 10, 2004, 40 years to the day after Guru Dutt died, Kalpana had every reason to forget that oversight, at least momentarily.
Guru Dutt's son Arun hosted an event at Mumbai's Grand Maratha Sheraton hotel to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the banner Guru Dutt Films, where the Indian postal department released a stamp in his father's honour.
"I am very happy they have finally come out with a stamp for him," said Kalpana Lajmi. "All credit to Bhupen Hazarika and (former minister) Arun Shourie who worked very hard for it."
