Abhijeet Sawant who had won the title of Indian Idol five years back, now nurtures another one. He says he would love to playback for superstar Shah Rukh Khan. In an interview he said that it has been his dream for ever to playback for SRK but he has got no such chances or offers yet. But he’s hopeful that this will happen soon. Although, he hasn’t got any chance to sing for Shah Rukh Khan but he has sung in number of films and has also released his albums following his “Indian Idol” win in 2005.

His songs “Mar jaawan mit jaawan” in “Aashiq Banaya Aapne” and “Dhoondein“, “Ek shaqs“, “Mahi mahi mahiya” and “Tere bina” in his debut album “Junoon” were widely appreciated. He has recently sung in the film “Mumbai.com” and is waiting to doing stage shows with melody queen Lata Mangeshkar and Sunidhi Chauhan. He also tried his luck in the film “Lottery” last year, but it flopped at the box office.

Although he supposes he is not cut out to be an actor, Abhijeet is looking forward to acting in a Marathi movie. Talking to media he said that “There is a Marathi film that I have been offered. The script will be finalized by August. I am a Maharashtrian and would love to do a film in my native language. The film is about a boy who doesn’t know English and that is a big weakness for him,”

He will be the host for the fifth season of “Indian Idol” and he told the media about his feelings that “It is a totally different feeling to be a host on a show I had once won. When I look at the contestants, I remember those days when I used to be one among the millions lined up for auditions. But it’s been a wonderful journey so far and I like motivating the new ones,”
