Earlier this month, Rohit had met Prime Minister Narendra Modi and invited him to his wedding. He was in Delhi playing for India in the 4th and final Test of the series against South Africa. At the time, he called upon the Prime Minister and handed over his marriage invitation.

India's limited overs captain MS Dhoni could not attend Rohit's marriage, as he was in Bengaluru, playing for Jharkhand in the Vijay Hazare Trophy. However, Dhoni was in Mumbai for the party on Friday (December 11) hosted by Mukesh Ambani at his residence.
