Ritika Rise to Stardom
- While Ritika Sajdeh had dealings with a number of celebrities from the sports field due to her job profile, she gained celebrity status after she began dating the ‘Hitman’ of Indian cricket, Rohit Sharma. She was introduced to him by her rakhi-brother Yuvraj Singh during a Reebok shoot in 2008, which she was managing. In an interview on YouTube’s web series, ‘Breakfast with Champions’ on December 22, 2017, Rohit revealed to host Gaurav Kapoor how that meeting was a disaster.
- After reaching the venue, he went on to greet senior player Yuvraj, who was already there with teammate Irfan Pathan and was accompanied by Ritika. As soon as they shook hands, Yuvi introduced him to her and jokingly said not to even look at her as she is his sister. Rohit was worried and angry throughout the shoot but managed to complete it. However, after the shoot, he was told by the director that he needs to re-record his lines as the mic was off.
- Frustrated, when he came down for a walk, he was joined by Ritika who nicely told him to let her know if he needs any assistance. They became friends afterward, and she started managing him as well. From manager and friend, she soon became his best friend, and the two began dating shortly after.
