Furious 7, which stars Paul Walker in his final film appearance and Vin Diesel, made over $160 million at the American box office at last count. Its opening weekend was the biggest in the Fast and Furious franchise and the ninth biggest ever in USA.
Furious 7, which also stars Jason Statham, Dwayne Johnson, Kurt Russell, Tyrese Gibson, Michelle Rodriguez and Jordana Brewster, was completed with Mr Walker’s brothers standing in for him.
Meanwhile, Bollywood’s latest offering has been left at the start line by Furious 7. Dibakar Banerjee’s much-awaited Byomkesh Bakshy, starring Sushant Singh Rajput as the titular sleuth, has made a little over Rs 15 crores so far.
