Abhijeet SawantWhen Indian Idol Abhijeet Sawant spent one-and-a-half hours at's office on June 3, he added a few more to the bag of hearts he has won over.

The new star signed autographs by the dozen and braved requests -- from 'please sing for us' to 'can I have your phone number' -- with signature charisma.

He obliged fans by singing Chana ve and, as an encore, Mohabatein lutaunga.   

And of course, Abhijeet chatted with readers for an hour, taking on questions on everything -- from God to girlfriends.
