Having established himself as a popular television actor, Abhijit Khandkekar is making his headway into Marathi films. Abhijit made his presence felt through his debut Marathi film ‘Jai Maharashtra Dhaba Bhatinda‘ in lead role. But, his next two films ‘Mamachya Gavala Jaoo Ya‘ and ‘Dhol Tashe‘ didn’t receive much success, in spite of his good performance. Abhijit who is presently playing lead role in ongoing Marathi serial ‘Majhya Navryachi Baiko‘, has three films due for release.
Out of these three films, two of them namely, ‘Dhyanimani‘ and ‘Bhay‘ present him in contrast characters. In ‘Dhyanimani‘, he plays a Psychologist, while in ‘Bhay‘ he plays a Schizophrenic. Recently, when we met him at the first look of ‘Dhyanimani‘, Abhijit Khandkekar seemed to be in a happy mood, as he shared the dais with all stalwarts like Mahesh Manjrekar, Chandrakant Kulkarni, Simita Thackeray and Medha Manjrekar. He thanked Mahesh Manjrekar and Chandrakant Kulkarni for choosing him to be part of their film and openly praised both, whom he treated on par with his father, as far as the learning process was concerned. “Working with Chandu Sir and Maheshji was like attending an acting workshop,” he said.
