In a Facebook post, Furious 7 star Vin Diesel has thanked his late co-star Paul Walker for ‘turning the world into a family.’ Furious 7, which released worldwide last week, was the last film appearance made by Paul who died in a car crash in 2013.
In the post, Vin shared the music video of the Wiz Khalifa/Charlie Puth song See You Again which was featured in the film’s soundtrack. The post has over two million likes and a million plus shares so far.
Furious 7 has topped box office charts the world over, making Rs 70 crores in India and almost $148 million in America.
Paul Walker, who has played undercover cop Brian O’Conner in all seven Fast & Furious films, died while filming the seventh installment. The film was completed with the actor’s brothers, Caleb and Cody, standing in for him.
Vin Diesel, who co-starred with Paul in all the films, has spoken often about the late actor. At a screening of Furious 7 in Los Angeles last month, Vin described the film as ‘the hardest movie’ he had ever made. “When the tragedy happened, I lost my best friend. I lost my brother,” he said.
Just weeks ago, Vin and partner Paloma had welcomed a baby daughter they named Pauline in honour of the late Paul.
