The 74-year-old also added that DiCaprio was "caring and considerate through out the making of the film."

The "Piku" star shared some anecdotes from a film festival held in Russia, where his son and actor signed his first autograph.

"An afternoon in Tashkent, Russia during the festival of films Raj Kapoor ji, Shashi ji were also there as were the family. Shweta (his daughter) and Abhishek barely seen along with (wife) Jaya. Abhishek actually signed his first autograph at this event," he wrote.
