The 70-year-old veteran star, who will be the first Indian actor to attend the event at BAFTA, praised Attenborough for his contribution to the world of cinema.



"Lord Attenborough remains an iconic figure in world cinema. I first him at the Press screening of his Oscar-winning 'Gandhi', where I bowed and touched his feet, Indian style, as a mark of reverence," Bedi said in a statement.

"I salute BAFTA, BFI and Arts For for honouring a great British actor, producer and director for his magnificent contributions to the world of films. I'm privileged to be a part of it," he said.

Attenborough was an English actor, film director and film producer. He was also the president of British Academy of Film and Television Arts (BAFTA).
