"There is nothing like the sight of an amputated spirit. There is no prosthetic for that," Al Pacino's memorable line from Scent of a Woman kickstarts The Academy's 'A celebration of hope' montage which features sequences of several beloved films from the years and decades past. The video was collated with the simple aspiration to motivate people to persevere through the pandemic by moving forward and helping each other out. "Get busy living or get busy dying," Tim Robbins states in the scene from the cult classic The Shawshank Redemption.

While the video is indeed moving, what made the montage even more special was its ending which featured a smiling Irrfan Khan. Film lovers are still mourning the late actor's demise who succumbed to his neuroendocrine tumour diagnosis in April and hence it was a pleasant surprise to see Irrfan's Life of Pi scene concluding The Academy's video. The sequence shown is when at the end of his interview, Khan is asked if his story does have a happy ending to which the actor coyly replies, "Well that’s up to you." As the montage "was a celebration of hope—through the lens of movies we love," the last shot used went hand-in-hand with the message that was tried to be sent across to the world.

Nimrat Kaur, who starred opposite Irrfan Khan in The Lunchbox retweeted The Academy's video and wrote, "A heavy heart smiles with the last frame. Such a rich, moving collage. #IrrfanForever."
