Amitabh shared a photograph of himself along with DiCaprio from the premiere of the 2013 film, The Great Gatsby on his blog and wrote: "The Great Gatsby premiere at Cannes was memorable with the star Leonardo DiCaprio at the red carpet and then on stage. Me giving introduction speech in Hindi about 100 years of Indian Cinema. He's a most humble and down-to-earth co-star." 

The veteran actor also added that DiCaprio was "caring and considerate throughout the making of the film." The Piku star shared some anecdotes from a film festival held in Russia, where his son and actor Abhishek Bachchan 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.
