The 74th British Academy Film Awards, also known as the BAFTAs did something heartwarming that left Indians across the world emotional. They paid tribute to two of the finest actors in the world, who are the crowned jewels of Indian film industry.
BAFTA lauded the late legendary actors, Irrfan Khan and Rishi Kapoor in their memoriam segment during the award ceremony.
These two great actors passed away just a day after the other. Irrfan left us on April 29, 2020 after battling neuroendocrine tumour for two years. And just a day later, Rishi Kapoor also passed away due to cancer. Seeing their work and lives being appreciated internationally has left Twitter in tears.

And *so* saddened to see that wonderful actor Irrfan Khan died this year. He was terrific in The Lunchbox a few years ago. Wonderful actor. pic.twitter.com/MfFpFN31GF
