Indian Star cricketer Rohit Sharma, who is currently undergoing rehabilitation at the National Cricket Academy (NCA) in Bengaluru, took possession of a four-acre land bought in the name of his wife, Ritika Sajdeh, in Alibaug. Sharma, accompanied by Ritika and two other persons, completed the registration formalities at the Alibaug sub-registrar’s office on Tuesday.
“It is true that Rohit Sharma had come on Tuesday to our office in connection with a land deal. We can’t confirm whether he bought the land or the person accompanying him did,” said Alibaug sub-registrar Sanjana Jadhav on Wednesday.
Alibaug, seven kilometers from Mumbai, is stunning with picturesque beaches and a tourist hotspot too. Many of Mumbai's wealthy people are having farmhouses here. Kohli spent time with wife Anushka in his farmhouse here during the lockdown.
Cricketers such as Sachin Tendulkar, Ravi Shastri and Ajit Agarkar have also bought land in Alibaug earlier.
