Big B unveiled the film's official trailer on Wednesday along with the other actors and the film's director Shoojit Sircar.
Post the event, the 72-year-old took to his blog and shared the experience of the event.
He wrote: "At the press release (launch) of the trailer today we called the press and asked them to bring their parents along... it was so wonderful to be in their company ...to see their children conduct their jobs, that of journalists, which perhaps they never get to see... and then meeting all of them on stage and getting a picture taken was just amazing."
Amitabh also posted some photographs of the event, and described how one scribe's mother "simply broke down after seeing and meeting me"
"She never believed that one day she would get to meet me...such a tender moment," he added.
Deepika Padukone spoke at length about the father-daughter relationship, which forms the plot of the film.
The actress also said that she could easily relate to her character of a working woman in a cosmopolitan city, who has to juggle varied roles.
Written by Juhi Chaturvedi, 'Piku' is slated to release on May 8.
