Rishi Kapoor and Irrfan Khan were among late screen icons who were given tributes along with Sean Connery, Kirk Douglas and Chadwick Boseman, at the 74th British Academy for Film and Television Arts (BAFTA) awards held in the Royal Albert Hall on Sunday night.
The tribute, in the form of a video clip, paid homage to over 40 artists the world of cinema lost during the past year, including actors, writers, directors, and technicians.
The video started with a tribute to Prince Philip, Duke of Edinburgh. Irrfan's name was accompanied by a line from his 2012 Hollywood film Life Of Pi.
Other late artists who were remembered in the video included Ian Holm and Barbara Windsor, and the video ended with a tribute to Black Panther star Chadwick Boseman.
