First Published 31, Oct 2020, 2:51 PM
Rohit Sharma has been married to Ritika Sajdeh since 2015. Both have a daughter together, Samaira Sharma. Ritika happens to be his long-time girlfriend and his former sports manager, who has also managed big players in the past, including current Indian skipper Virat Kohli.
Indian opener Rohit Sharma is one of the most productive batsmen in the world, who holds ample records to his name. As he continues to have a good time on the cricket pitch, he is having the same in his personal life, along with his wife, Ritika Sajdeh.
Rohit and Ritika love story might not be as hyped as Virat Kohli and Anushka Sharma. However, the couple does look adorable together.
They also have a daughter, Samaira Sharma, together, while their togetherness is a prime example of how best friends can become soulmates in the most loyal way. In the same light, we present their love story.
First meeting: It all happened when Ritika started to work as Rohit’s manager, as the former happens to be a sports manager, who had previously managed Kohli as well. In the process, both became friends, as their friendship blossomed into being best friends. Incidentally, Ritika also happened to be Yuvraj Singh’s rakhi sister.
The proposal: Unlike in the movie The Proposal, this was different. Both dated for six years before Rohit, one day, took her to the Borivali Sports Club, where he had started his cricketing career at the age of 11. Since the place holds an important position in his life, he proposed her at the spot, which she happily accepted. “From best friends to soulmates, couldn’t get any better,” Rohit had tweeted following that, as they got engaged in 2015.
Marriage made in heaven: No, they did not actually get married in heaven, but the atmosphere certainly was. It was in Mumbai’s Taj Lands Hotel where they had their grand wedding festival, which was attended by celebrities from Bollywood and high-professional businessmen, as Rohit’s Indian teammates had a blast at it. Prior to their wedding, the Ambani’s, too, threw a party for them.
Love blossoms even after marriage: Following their wedding, the love between the two has blossomed even further. They both compliment each other for their supports, while Ritika is seen backing Rohit in most of his matches. They were blessed with a daughter in 2018, as she attended the IPL 2019 final, which was won by MI.
The one who understand each other: After Rohit had led Mumbai Indians (MI) to their title win in 2017, Ritika had said, “It’s not just because you captained your team to yet another IPL title but the fact that I’ve seen you go through possibly the hardest six months of your life and come out stronger, faster and more determined than ever. You’re the strongest person I know, and I am so so so proud of you. Congratulations to you and all your boys on bringing the cup back home.” Their support for each other is genuinely undying.
Family first: The couple happens to be family-oriented and prioritise themselves over anything else. They are often seen together, vacationing, when Rohit is not on cricketing duty. Besides, Rohit keeps himself away from other activities, outside cricket, as he tends to give his utmost time to Ritika and her daughter. Indeed, an adorable couple and a family, as we wish them all the best for the future.
