The limitless ‘asli yaari’ between Vin Diesel, Paul Walker and Tyrese Gibson

If you needed proof that true friendship never dies, here’s unequivocal evidence. On November 30, 2015 — a date that marked the second anniversary of Paul Walker’s death — Hollywood heavyweight Vin Diesel was amongst the first to post an emotional tribute to his friend. He wrote: “No matter where you are in this universe… You will always be, my brother.” Earlier this year, Vin Diesel also confessed to naming his new-born daughter after Paul Walker — choosing the moniker ‘Pauline’ in honour of his friend.


Clearly the camaraderie on the sets of the ‘Fast and Furious’ franchise was exceptional, because co-star Tyrese Gibson felt it too. Taking to social media to mark the day, Tyrese admitted that even two years on, he is still struggling to come to terms with Paul’s passing. “It’s still not easy… 2 years ago today… We lost our brother… Today I’m just gonna lay low and process…” said Tyrese.

Asli yaari is a bond of brotherhood and, as Vin Diesel himself puts it, “brotherhood has no limits.”
