Karan, the star of TV show “Bahu Humari Rajni_kant”, picks the first one as his favourite due to its “raw and unpredictable” quality.
“Bahu Humari Rajni_kant” actress Riddhima Pandit said: “The last one (‘Furious 7’) as it had an extremely emotional quotient as it was Walker’s last movie as he had died while filming it, I remember crying in the last scene where Diesel and Paul’s car go separate ways”.
The eighth instalment in the popular “Fast and Furious” franchise has been announced. “Fast 8” is expected to release on April 17, 2017.
