Actor Irrfan Khan and costume designer Bhanu Athaiya were among the celebrities who were honoured as part of the In Memoriam segment of the 93rd Academy Awards that took place earlier today. 

In their annual In Memoriam segment, the Academy features a slideshow of prominent film personalities who passed away the past year. 

Writing about Irrfan on the Oscar website, Frieda Pinto, his Slumdog Millionaire co-star, said, "There was simply no one like Irrfan Khan. His grace and dignity along with his monumental talent as an artist, actor - a portrayer of humanity in all its shapes and forms - made me not only have deep admiration for him, but I instinctively wanted to emulate that grace in my career as well." 

Bhanu, who passed away last year at 91, was the first Indian to win an Oscar. She won it for her work in Richard Attenborough's 1982 film, Gandhi

Irrfan had worked in many Hollywood films like Life of Pi, Jurassic World and Inferno.

The In Memoriam segment also honoured celebrities like Sean Connery and Chadwick Boseman, among others.
