As part of the Royal Heritage theme, Rohit has been given the presidential suite room, which highlights Saurashtra’s royal culture. In a special interview, hotel director Urvesh Purohit informed AajTak that since players travel the world and typically book rooms with Western themes, this will offer them a little variation.

According to the same source, special Gujarati and Kathiyawadi meals are been prepared for the players on February 13 before the game starts.

The menu includes traditional food items like Fafda-Jalebi, Khakhra, Gathiya, Thepla, Khman for breakfast, and special Kathiyawadi food like Dahi Tikari, Vagherela Rotlo (Bajra Roti fried with yogurt and garlic), Khichdi Kadhi for dinner.
