How could the marriage take place without the proposal? Well, don't worry. Rohit won the heart of Ritika by a grand proposal in Borivali Sports Club, Mumbai, the same ground where Rohit started his cricketing journey at the age of 11. Rohit went down on his knees with a solitaire ring in his hand and proposed his ladylove. Ritika, in amazement, accepted Rohit's proposal

Rohit and Ritika took their vows on 3 June 2015. Rohit shared his engagement news through a tweet on 2 May 2018, one month before marrying each other.

The biggest role in bringing this two soulmates together was played by Harbhajan Singh. Actually, Harbhajan Singh was a mutual friend to both Ayesha and Dhawan on Facebook. When Dhawan came across Ayesha's Facebook profile, he was mesmerized with Ayesha's beauty and charm. Thus, he sent her a friend request, which she accepted. They started chatting on Facebook and their Hi's and Hello's soon turned into a relationship.

However, Ayesha had the challenge of raising her two kids after divorcing with the Australian businessman. Still, Dhawan was ready to be a nice companion to her and father to her children, in order to establish a successful partnership for life.
