"Fast and Furious 7" is currently being filmed in Abu Dhabi, and Vin Diesel, who plays the pivotal role of Dominic Toretto in the film, recently posted a photo from behind the scenes.

The Facebook photo showed the actor petting a tiger. Diesel appears to be making sure the "Fast & Furious" fans get all the updates regarding the film.

Diesel's photo with the tiger has made the fan curious and they are wondering whether the animal is the new addition to the cast. Speculations are rife that the tiger will be used either in an action scene or it will appear during a car race. However, it could also be possible that Diesel was just giving friendly pat to the tiger.

Moreover, Diesel also posted a picture of him with picture Jason Statham, who plays the villain Ian Shaw in the film. Dominic in "Fast & Furious 6" kills Shaw's brother.

"Fast & Furious 7" was put on hold after Paul Walker passed away in a tragic car accident on Nov 30. However, before Walker met his maker, he had filmed a major chunk of the film.

Previously it was rumored that Walker's character will be written off from the film, however, it was later confirmed on the film official FB page that Walker's younger brothers Cody and Caleb will be playing his body doubles.

Meanwhile, the much awaited action flick is also supposed to be the best action film in the "Fast & Furious" saga. In April Diesel posted a video with his trainer Higgins, in which he explained how Higgins had become a part of "Fast & Furious" family.

"It made all the sense in the world to invite him (Higgins) in the process so that he makes this film the best ever in honor of my brother Paul Walker," said Diesel.
