At the point when entertainer Abhijeet Khandkekar was shown the content of Baba, he right away realized that he needed to be a part of it. The actor was drawn closer by director Raj Gupta and the two met at the pre-sunrise times of morning to take a step forward. “My television show schedule has most of my day tied up. So, I had to call Raj home at around 6.30am. He explained the role to me, and at that very moment, I knew that I wanted to do the film. It is a heartwarming and pure story,” said Abhijeet. He included that he respects industrially feasible tasks but was eager for something unadulterated and enthusiastic.
“I was waiting to be a part of such an emotional and sensitive story. I always wanted to do a film that tells the tale of hope and love,” he said. “I am okay with the length of a role as long as it adds to the story and graph of the film. My motive is to be a part of good films. I look at a project as a whole and not only from my character’s view.” Having played the hero or opponent in the greater part of his tasks, Abhijeet has no issues with playing a parallel lead. He shares that the length of the character has never been an issue for him.
“I was surprised to see how everything on set was planned to the smallest detail. The scene where the Deepak Dobroyal and Aaryan Menghji are on a cycle, was created and a recce was done and a picture was displayed on a board to get a better understanding,” he added. Abhijeet experienced workshops and preparing for the film and was astounded at the exactness and readiness of the film's group.
While commenting on his experience with working with Raj, Abhijeet stated that, “I am still very young in experience, but I noticed that there are two types of directors, one who tell you exactly what they want from you, and second who ask you to show what you have. Raj is a good combination of both.”
