Shared on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram, the doodle captures various noteworthy roles by Chatterjee. The text on the image reads ’Apaar Sansar’, a wordplay on the name of one of the popular movies that features him.

“Apaar means uncountable. Yes indeed uncountable sansar of cinema and theatre works. And Sri Soumitra Chatterjee’s midas touch to each of them,” read a comment by a Facebook user. “It should be Apur Sansar.. not apaar,” pointed out one individual. To which one said, “It’s not a mistake... Amul did it on purpose. Please understand the bigger picture”.
“Amul you guys have my heart with these wordplay tributes and poster artworks that you put up. Absolute perfection,” wrote a third.
