"It's an honest film. It's full of values, bonding and about father-son relationship. It reminded me of my relationship with my dad," Sanjay said.
"My dad was never really physical with me. He took very long to say he loves me. I obviously knew the love was always there," he added.
Directed by Rajesh Mapuskar, produced by Vidhu Vinod Chopra, 'Ferrari Ki Sawaari' is set to release Friday.
Sanjay shared screen space with his father in Chopra's 'Munnabhai M.B.B.S.'.
Sharing some fond memories from the 2003 hit film, he said, "There was a scene in 'Munnabhai M.B.B.S.' where he had to hug me. He had met with an accident that day, his shoulder was jammed and he could barely raise his hand to hug me. We all saw how much pain he was in."
"In fact, Vidhu even asked him to go home and rest. But he insisted that he wanted to finish the shoot. And he did. Believe me the way he hugged me in that shot, it was so tight and full of love, it wasn't acting, it was for real. This film is that real and reminds me of my dad," added the 52-year-old.
