Rohit and his wife Ritika Sajdeh welcomed their little bundle of joy, Samaira in December last year.

Taking to his Instagram page, an elated Rohit shared, “This made us so emotional! This is so special! Conservation of Rhinos is a cause so close to our hearts and Sudan meant so much to us. Thank you @olpejeta for this honour. I can’t believe our two-month-old has a Rhino named after her in Africa, unbelievably special. We’ll have to bring our little animal lover to meet her namesake in due time.”

The couple joined a rhino saving project in Kenya as PETA ambassador in 2015.

For Rohit, the cause of rhino conservation is one that is very close to his heart.
