BAFTA honoured Bollywood actors Irrfan and Rishi Kapoor in its 'In Memoriam' segment among other dignitaries like Prince Philip, Chadwick Boseman and Christopher Plummer. Irrfan and Kapoor died last year in April. 

BAFTA's 'In Memoriam' pays a special tribute to those personalities who passed away in the previous year.

Kapoor, a romantic hero of many Bollywood hits and in later years, a respected character actor, died just a day later, on April 30, also from cancer. He was 67.

Prince Philip, Duke of Edinburgh, who died on April 9, 2021, at Windsor Castle, composer Ennio Morricone, Sean Connery, George Segal, director Bertrand Tavernier, Barbara Jefford, Ben Cross, Ian Holm, Barbara Windsor and Kirk Douglas were among the many celebrities who were remembered in the segment this year.
