Sharing the photo, he penned a note saying that he feels humbled on recalling the number of directors that have wanted to work with him. In the long note, he talked about the story behind the photo and wrote, "This is a pic of when I went to India as I promised Deepika I would, with the director at the time, DJ Caruso."

He also mentioned how his elder daughter read the script that DJ Caruso had sent him and revealed that she started crying after reading the story. “She cried... I asked her why she cried, and she said because the story of a brother and sister rang true for her, and it was emotional.” He concluded by writing, “If I could make the film work that my daughter cried reading, my question for you would be, who would play my sister? She suggested Jennifer Lawrence. What do you think?”
