Hollywood star Vin Diesel, who voices Groot in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, has penned a heartfelt tribute to Iron Man Robert Downey Jr. Referring to Downey Jr as "My brother Bobby" in his post on Instagram, the Fast and Furious actor posted a long message crediting Downey Jr for inspiring him to take his upcoming film Fast 9 to "new heights".

Diesel shared a picture of the two actors where Downey Jr can be seen clicking a selfie with him. In his long post, Diesel refers to the fact that both of them have never won an Oscar, but that has made little difference to their stardom. "His belief in me sometimes scares me," says Diesel, adding that Downey Jr believes Fast 9 will be as big as Avengers: Endgame at the box office.

My brother Bobby... let me tell you about this amazing individual. He has a way of giving everyone he comes in contact with so much inspiration. You see it in the roles he plays. Like me he has never won an Oscar, but that means zero when it comes to how he has affected the world. His very existence represents the power of resilience. The love you have for him pales in comparison to the love I have for his spirit. On the weekend of the highest grossing movie of all times he in the most humble way says, your next brother. Fast 9 is going to take the industry to new heights! His belief in me sometimes scares me. I never want to let anyone down. So I will do everything in my power to make sure FAST 9 is everything! I love you RDJ and your brotherhood is truly a gift of which I am eternally grateful for. #teamstark #wearegroot #disney #marvel #universal #daretodream #teamgroot #domtoretto #FAST9 #leadwithlove #bloodshot #iloveyou
