MUMBAI: Alanis Morissette’s Ironic took another meaning as the news of death of Fast & Furious franchise’s actor Paul Walker spread.

The actor who was the integral part of the franchise was killed in a car accident on Saturday on his way to a charity event. Walker, 40, was a passenger in a Porsche sports car driven by a friend, who also died in the crash.

A statement on the actor's official Facebook page said that Walker was a passenger in the car, and had been at a charity event for his organisation, Reach Out Worldwide earlier in the day.

As people got over the shock, condolences started pouring in. His co-star, Vin Diesel posted on Instagram: "Brother I will miss you very much. I am absolutely speechless. Heaven has gained a new Angel. Rest in Peace."

Similarly, Dwayne 'The Rock' Johnson tweeted: "All my strength, love & faith to the Walker family during this heart-breaking time. We find our strength…in his light. Love you brother."

The pair was joined by a number of stars and fans paying tribute to Paul, who is survived by his 15-year-old daughter.

However, one cannot get over the fact that the machine which made him famous, also took his life.
