Where did Rohit Sharma's Brother grow up?
Gurunath Sharma, Rohit Sharma's father, held an administrative job in the transport company Prakash Roadlines in Mumbai and did not earn much to serve the educational needs of Rohit and his brother. Their mother, Purnima is a housewife. They lived in a single-room residence in Dombivali, a suburb in Mumbai.

Vishal Sharma's Childhood with Rohit
The vice-captain of the Indian cricket team is in the form of his life and one person who couldn't be any prouder is his brother, Vishal Sharma. From childhood, the brothers used to play cricket together.
Their game became more serious during festivals and holidays when they used to meet in Borivali. (Rohit Sharma had to live with his grandmother and uncle throughout his teens at his father's family house in Borivali).
Rohit, obviously, took it more sincerely since he aspired to become a professional player.
Seeing Rohit's passion for the game, their uncle enlisted him in a summer cricket camp when he was only 14.
Vishal Sharma's Presence in Media
To fans' surprise, Vishal does not have many pictures of himself with the Indian cricket player, who has been enchanting fans around the world with his extravagant batting.
The one time he did speak to the media, he mentioned how his brother is asked for photographs everywhere he goes, but he doesn't mind it at all.
Vishal also went on to say how the Hitman of the Indian cricket team always supports his entire family. When Rohit felt that he had made enough money to look after his family, he asked his father, Gurunath Sharma, to retire in 2006. He purchased a house for the family so that they could live close to where he lived in Mumbai.
Last year, Rohit asked his brother to quit his job in the hospitality industry as well and manage the affairs of his cricket academies in Singapore and India instead.
