A string of personalities from the Indian film fraternity took to social media on Saturday to pay tributes to James Bond actor Sean Connery, who passed away at the age of 90.

Director Rahul Dholakia mourned the death of "the original Bond" and said: "James Bond. Sir #SeanConnery Rests ! Goodbye 007 and thank you."

Bollywood actor Arjun Rampal said that all Connery's characters will stay with him.

He wrote: "The legend Sir Sean Connery, the first and best James Bond, Indiana Jones father Henry Jones Sr. The incredible Jim Malone in The Untouchables are a few of the incredible incredible characters he brought to life. Will always stay with me. Thank you. RIP."

Aftab Shivadasani conveyed condolences to the family. "A legend leaves us. RIP Sir Sean Connery. Deep condolences to his family and fans. May God bless his soul," he wrote.

Director Kunal Kohli listed Connery as his best Bond: "Goodbye Mr. Bond. #RIPSeanConnery. My fav Bond's in order. 1. Sean Connery. 2. Pierce Brosnan. 3. Roger Moore. 4. Daniel Craig," Kohli wrote.

Singer-actress Sophie Choudry called 2020 the worst year after learning of Connery's death. "This year just continues to get worse... My fave..absolute legend... the best 007 there ever was and one of the few actors who transcended Bond to give other memorable performances. The epitome of style and charisma," she said.
