New Delhi (India), May 14: It’s the tenth song released from Dil Se Dil Tak – a first of its kind, independent Bollywood music album featuring ten songs of ten different genres, each with its own music video – but ‘Safar’ holds a special place for Shailendra Singh, the Entertainment and Sports Guru turned Music and Video Director. After featuring an unprecedented 200 different artists on the much- awaited album, it is Shailendra Singh himself that stars in the music video and brings the song to life on the big screen.
Released on Friday, 13th May 2022 on his YouTube Channel, Shailendra Singh Films, ‘Safar’ is a feel-good number composed by Anjana Ankur Singh under the creative direction of Shailendra Singh, and features lyrics sung by Rohit Dubey.

In the music video, Shailendra embodies the spirit of safar, travelling from the hectic, enclosed terrain of the city to the expansive, soaring landscape of the Himalayas. As the lyrics of the song say, ‘Life is a journey. Whether the road turns left or right, I don’t know. But I will turn whatever way I feel like.’
Says Shailendra Singh, “This track was inspired by the time I spent in the Spiti Valley after lockdown. I was able to go there, reconnect with nature and remember myself. I am a storyteller, and I like to tell stories with no expectations and no limitations. When I am in the mountains, I feel free. I tried to capture that feeling in the song, and in the music video.”
Staying true to his lifetime of philanthropic efforts, Dil Se Dil Tak has no sponsors and no agendas – just a pure music and video experience, with a heart. Proceeds raised from the music videos will be donated to help the pandemic affected, underprivileged children of India.
Continues Shailendra, “I’ve never understood why all of our music and music videos have to be linked with a Bollywood film. There are so many independent and exciting stories out there to be told, and a whole generation of amazing artists that may never get on a film set. After having been there and done all of that, I am happy to bring together all those talented artists and give a voice to those stories.”
