A quick peek at Ritika Sajdeh’s Instagram profile reveals a good number of gorgeous images of her with her daughter Samaira, husband and former Indian team captain Rohit Sharma.
Despite dating for up to six years before getting hitched in December 2015, Rohit did not have a favorable opinion of Ritika because of former India all-rounder Yuvraj Singh.
Five years ago, during a conversation on Gaurav Kapur’s chat show Breakfast with Champions, Rohit shared an amusing story about how he and Yuvraj met while working on a professional shoot in 2008.

Despite having never met her before, Ritika is a manager of sporting events, and Yuvraj warned Rohit to stay away from her because she is his sister. Rohit soon responded to him, sounding somewhat perplexed, saying that he was merely there to meet him and had nothing to do with her (Ritika).
Despite not even having spoken to Ritika once, Rohit subsequently admitted that his initial impression of her was not favorable.

Ritika Sajdeh and Yuvraj Singh Relation
An old photograph of Ritika giving Yuvraj the traditional Rakhi (a holy thread symbolizing the love between siblings) went viral on social media platforms last year during the auspicious Hindu festival of Raksha Bandhan, with people referring to Ritika as Yuvraj’s sister.
Although they have known each other for a long time and have a very close bond, they are not actually biological siblings. Ritika is just treated as Ritika’s younger sister by Yuvraj out of deference and civility.

Rohit and Ritika Finally Meet
After Rohit had to redo the session due to technical difficulties with his microphone, Ritika and he eventually met on that particular day.
She was very nice and polite to him during their initial encounter, Rohit exclaimed and even advised him to contact her if he needed any assistance.
Subsequently, the two developed a strong friendship, and Ritika began personally overseeing all of Rohit’s photoshoots and brand endorsement events.
