After adman Rakesh Om Prakash Mehra's National triumph with the cinematic ‘gold' – BHAG MILKHA BHAAG, his assistant Sandeep Modi's short film BEST FRIENDS FOREVER has won the national honours in the 'Best Film on Family Values' category at the recently announced prestigious awards.


An alumnus of FTII Pune and a renowned name in the advertising industry, Sandeep Modi's heart-warming tale of a mother-daughter relationship - BEST FRIENDS FOREVER, helmed by Sandeep Modi created quite a stir in the world of short films and elated by the National award recognition, Sandeep said, BEST FRIENDS FOREVER Is a perspective. What happens when we build our life towards a loved one, nurture her, support her and when she is ready to fly off we feel jealous and betrayed as we are not ready for the selflessness expected of us? I wanted to discover the emotional state of a mother who has given it all and is now on the brink, realizing she is no longer needed as her daughter is now ready to 'fly solo'. Between the anger and the coming to term with this truth, are many beautiful shades of grey we don't realize exist in mothers. BEST FRIENDS FOREVER is my attempt to discover these shades that a woman overcomes, in her journey of selflessness called motherhood.'

Apart from Rakesh OM Prakash Mehra, Sandeep has assisted noted film-makers like Ram Gopal Verma, Ashutosh Gowariker and also Ram Madvani in NEERJA. Sandeep had designed, choreographed, and executed the action climax inside the airplane. He even directed the promotional music video for the film titled Aankhein Milayengey Darr Se.

After winning the laurels for BEST FRIENDS FOREVER, Sandeep is filled it high hopes for his next short VANVASS starring Piyush Mishra in the lead. The film has already travelled and played at festivals in Toronto and Dallas.
