Funny Face

Was there really an international airline service in India called Star of India (competition to Indian Airlines?)? In did not know, until I noticed this towards the end of Audrey Hepburn-Fred Astaire musical Funny Face (1957). There is also a Hindi rendition of the name, helpfully to indicate that this is indeed intended for India.

The movie features a brief cameo of an Indian philosopher, whom the Audrey Hepburn character beats up and who helps the Fred Astaire character resolve his misunderstanding with his girlfriend at the airport in Paris, no less.
