The cast and crew of 'Fast & Furious 7' have announced that the shooting of the film is over and it's certainly been a labour of love and loss.

The announcement, made via the 'Fast & Furious' Facebook page, thanked fans for their continued support. It also paid tribute to late actor Paul Walker, who died midway through filming in November 2013, reported Collider.
"We felt the love and strength from our fans throughout this journey, and it's because of you that we got here," the statement read. The cast and crew claimed it was only by listening to what fans wanted that they found the strength to go on and decided to make the rest of the film even without Walker's presence. "Our family is big and strong but it won't ever quite be whole again without Paul."
The cast and crew felt it was Vin Diesel who had ensured the project continued after Paul Walker's death. The movie had to be delayed due to the tragic death of Walker last November.
It is still not certain how the film will deal with Paul Walker's death and it is rumoured his character will be retired instead of killed. 'Fast & Furious 7', which will see Bollywood actor Ali Fazal in a small role, will be released in cinemas on April 3, 2015.
