Sandeep Singh’s first movie as a director is called ‘Safed.’ Abhay Verma plays the character Chaandi in the movie, and Meera Chopra plays the character Kaali. A transgender person and a widow have an unusual love story that drives the plot. This new and unusual look at love is meant to break social rules and question ideas people already have about relationships.
The first look at the movie was shown to the world for the first time at the prestigious Cannes Film Festival in 2022. This was done by the famous music composer AR Rahman. Now, the creators have given the audience a peek that makes them want to see the movie even more.
‘Safed’ is only 70 minutes long, but it packs an emotional punch in that short amount of time. A group of talented actors, including Barkha Bisht, Jameel Khan, and Chhaya Kadam, also play important parts in the movie.
The movie’s soul-stirring music record, which has seven romantic songs, is one of its best parts. The songs are sung by famous singers like Sonu Nigam, Rekha Bhardaj, Shilpa Rao, Shail Hada, Shashi Suman, Jazim Sharma, and Suvarna Tiwari.
Director Sandeep Singh has a clear idea of what he wants the movie to be about. He wants to give a voice to people from different backgrounds who often have trouble fitting in in a society that wants everyone to be the same. He thinks that everyone is a person and deserves love and respect, no matter how different they are. The movie wants to have a big effect on the freedom of marginalised people to live and love without being judged.
Anand Pandit is proud to be a part of a project like ‘Safed,’ which isn’t afraid to explore unusual topics and stories. Sandeep Singh does a good job of showing love between two people of different genders against the rough background of Banaras. This adds a new layer to the story.

Abhay Verma, who played Chaandi, had been a model and actress with a ‘chocolate boy’ image before he took on the role of Chaandi. He was nervous at first about playing the part of a transgender person, but director Sandeep’s faith in him gave him more confidence. Abhay’s commitment to the part caused him to go through deep emotional changes that lasted long after filming was done.
Meera Chopra, who plays the widow Kaali, was very moved by what Sandeep wrote for the plot. Even though she wasn’t sure at first, Meera found comfort in Sandeep’s direction and did a good job showing how hard it is to be a widow in the movie. She is glad that this important and interesting job was given to her.
‘Safed’ claims to break down stereotypes and touch people’s hearts with its honest and brave stories. As Sandeep Singh’s first film as a director, the movie has gotten a lot of attention and joy from movie fans and people who like films that make them think.
