More than 1500 people have commented on the heartwarming photo on Facebook.

Numerous people discussed how handsome the two looked.

Others mentioned how Zander appears to be following the footsteps of his famous dad.

Others wished both the best.

“Awesome Son And Dad – all the very best to you in your professional career. Good time for Asians today then it was so difficult, back then , when your dad was starting out !” said one.

It’s unclear what show or film the two are working on together.
