I liked this script and agreed to do it," says Abhijeet .

Director Hemant Prabhu has seven years experience in television serial direction and shows. When we got in touch with the director and asked him why he opted for Abhijeet, he confessed, "Abhijeet wasn't my first choice for this role. I approached Shreyas Talpade, but he is busy with prior commitments. I saw Abhijeet; he has a vulnerable face, and that's what I need for the reclusive character he'll be playing. We auditioned him and signed him for Lottery . He is young and can be molded well."

After Himesh, Abhijeet is going to be the next singer-actor. Will he be seen singing like Himesh? "No he will not play the role of a singer or composer in the film.
