Personal Life

In 2012, reports of a romantic relationship between Rohit Sharma and Sofia Hayat surfaced, capturing the attention of the media. Numerous outlets published stories featuring photos of Rohit Sharma and speculating about his dating association with Sofia Hayat. The former couple initially crossed paths at a party held in another country, and their connection was facilitated through a mutual friend.


Sofia’s early life stood in stark contrast to her present, liberating lifestyle. Raised within the confines of a Muslim family, she spent her formative years residing above her parents’ corner shop in Kent. However, this seemingly ordinary setting masked a life fraught with the strictest of limitations and restrictions. Her father’s stern enforcement left her with no room for friendships, and engaging in conversations with guys came with grave consequences, often leading to encounters with violence.

TV Shows

“Absolute Power” is a witty and captivating British comedy series that unfolds within the bustling London offices of Prentiss McCabe, a fictional yet intriguing public relations firm, often referred to as a ‘government-media relations consultancy.’ Helmed by the dynamic duo of Charles Prentiss, portrayed by the talented Stephen Fry, and Martin McCabe, brought to life by the brilliant John Bird, the show offers a satirical look at the world of PR and power-play.
