Indian cricketer Rohit Sharma got married to his long time girlfriend Ritika Sajdeh on 13th December, Sunday. The wedding ceremony took place at a poolside hotel Bandra, Mumbai as Rohit tied the nuptial knot with Ritika Sajdeh. Rohit Sharma became the latest Indian cricket star to join in the newly wedded band-wagon, after Harbhajan Singh and Dinesh Karthik’s marriages earlier this year. For his wedding, Rohit Sharma wore a traditional outfit, designed by Raghavendra Rathore. His attire for the marriage reception, slated to be held on December 14, will be styled by Troy Costa. The wedding reception will be hosted by Ritika’s family at Taj Lands End in Bandra, Mumbai.

Amongst the attendees were Sachin Tendulkar with wife Anjali Tendulkar, Indian cricket teammates Harbhajan Singh, Yuvraj Singh, Suresh Raina and Umesh Yadav, who were present to grace the occasion. Mumbai Indians’ (MI) owners Mukesh Ambani along with wife Nita Ambani and their son were also present at the wedding to bless the newly weds. Rohit and Ritika got engaged earlier this year during the Indian Premier League (IPL) season in a private ceremony attended by close friends and relatives.
