Just when we thought we can never have enough of Leonardo DiCaprio, what with The Revenant threatening to take over this year’s Oscars, here’s a connection that’ll endear the Hollywood actor to us Indians even more. His step mother, Peggy DiCaprio, is an Amritdhari Sikh.

Peggy DiCaprio wears a turban, and is often seen in traditional Indian dresses. According to reports, she joined the sect years ago, but started wearing a turban only a few years ago.

Peggy married George DiCaprio in 1995 and also has a son, Leonardo’s step brother, Adam Ferrar. She is George’s second wife after he divorced Leonardo’s mom, Irmelin Indenbirken, when the actor was just one year old.

Leonardo DiCaprio won a Golden Globe Award for the best actor in drama for The Revenant and now in hot pursuit for an Oscar. Here’s hoping he wins it this time.
