In my opinion, this article either lacks sufficient Attribution that it satisfies the Notability criteria for Biographies, or it may violate the Conflict of interest guideline, or perhaps it is a Copyright violation.
Wikipedia articles must be based on reliable sources to verify any claims of notability. Even though the lack of reliable source attribution in an article is not grounds for deletion in itself, an article with absolutely no sources (or only external links to unreliable ones) suggests to some editors that multiple reliable sources may not, in fact, exist.
Although I am considering tagging this article for deletion according to the Deletion policy, perhaps User:Arjun1591 (talk · contribs), or other recent contributors to this article, will make some constructive improvements to it ... I do not have time to examine this article in depth at the moment, and it may improve over time, in which case this warning was premature.
- I tend to agree ... I mean, the subject doesn't even have an IMDb entry! How NN can you get?? — 126.96.36.199 (talk) 21:51, 4 October 2008 (UTC)
As per Wikipedia is not a collection of lists, I have reduced the Filmography section of to just the films that have Wikipedia articles, and renamed it to Selected filmography ... people can click the IMDb External link that follows the section to see the subject's full filmography with links to information about each of their films.
I have also used [[19xx in film|19xx]] tags for the years of the films, since [[19xx]] has little encyclopedic value.
Anonymous edits without comments may be reverted by anyone.
I am placing this boilerplate message on this Discussion page before I actually make the changes, so that I can just put
"see Discussion page" in the edit summary, and hopefully not have my edit summarily reverted as vandalism by Some Other Editor.
Confused as IMDb may be about the subject, I'm willing to back off on the WP:N, and I'll take The Times of India as a sufficient WP:RS ... that's as much lipstick as I feel like putting on this pig. :-)
