Filmmaker Sandeep Singh has made his mark as a successful producer by producing films like Ram-leela, Mary Kom, Rowdy Rathore, Saraswatichandra, Aligarh, Sarbjit, Bhoomi and Jhund. Now Sandeep Singh is set to make his directorial debut with ‘Safed’, an unimaginable love story.
Sandeep promises to give a sensitive portrayal of a section of society that exists but is rarely seen. The film was shot in world’s oldest city Banaras in just 11 days with the minimal crew of 35 people.
Taking the film internationally, the makers are heading to Cannes to unveil the first look of ‘Safed’ with the lead actors Abhay Verma and Meera Chopra, along with the director Sandeep Singh, producers, Vinod Bhanushali and Ajay Harinath Singh.
Sandeep Singh shared, “I am honoured to begin my directorial venture with a film like ‘Safed’, a story that remains largely untold, a narrative that is underlined with stereotypical attitudes, and the truth that has to be told wholesome. It is humbling and encouraging that I begin with a story that comes from a world that most of us know so little about; a story that pains my heart in a way that gives me happiness.
Vinod Bhanushali, who is currently backing real stories closer to his homeland – India shared, “Safed is a special film in many ways. I am proud to be associated with it and also glad that I am able to back Sandeep’s vision.”
‘Safed’ stars Abhay Verma and Meera Chopra in the lead. It is written and directed by Sandeep Singh. The film is presented by Bhanushali Studios Limited and Legend Studios.
