MANILA – Julia Barretto took to social media to express how proud she is of her father Dennis Padilla's directorial debut.

Padilla is the director of the upcoming movie "The Barker" starring Empoy Marquez.

In a Twitter post, Barretto shared the trailer of the film and wrote: "My papa's a director!!!! THE BARKER in cinemas soon."

Produced by Viva Films, the movie will be released in cinemas beginning October 25.

Padilla's relationship with his daughter became strained last year after Barretto, whose real name is Julia Frances Baldivia (Padilla's real surname), made public that she wanted to legally drop her last name.

The two have since patched things up with Barretto saying: "As a daughter, it makes me really happy because at the end of the day, he’s still my dad. No matter what, gusto ko sa huli ay okay kami, walang hard feelings."

Barretto is Padilla's daughter with ex-wife Marjorie Barretto.
