Indian-born British actor Saeed Jaffrey, popular for movies like ‘Gandhi’ and ‘Masoom’, was honoured at ceremony in the ‘In Memoriam’ montage. Saeed, who passed away in London in November last year and was posthumously named for the Padma Shri, India's fourth highest civilian award earlier this year, got a musical tribute by Dave Grohl of Foo Fighters.

Saeed was included in the annual montage along with Wes Craven, Alan Rickman, James Horner, Omar Shariff, David Bowie, Leonard Nimoy and Christopher Lee.
