A former Indian news anchor and television presenter, as well as a journalist, editor, and columnist, he passed away recently on April 30, 2021.

Early Life & Education
He received his formal education at Kurukshetra's Gita Niketan Awasiya Vidyalaya. During his school years, he excelled in academics. When he was younger, he was known for his high exam scores. Aside from academics, he would engage in practically all extracurricular activities as well as sports.
Regarding Sardana's further education, he graduated with a Bachelor of Arts degree in psychology from the Guru Jambeshwar Institute of Science and Technology in India. Following that, he went on to get his post-graduate M.A. in public communication at the same university.
Rohit has a strong interest in performing and participated in a few theatre productions in 1997. His goal was to appear on national television. The National School of Drama (NSD) in Delhi, India, was where he decided to continue his education. He had a hope to complete his studies there. The culture, on the other hand, did not appeal to him, and he decided to leave on the third day of seven-day training.
His ambition was to make an appearance on national television. To be a competent journalist, the ability to communicate well in a foreign language is essential. As a result, he started to brush up on his language abilities.
Writing for local newspapers throughout his time in the field of journalism was an important part of his portfolio for numerous job interviews. He was asked why he was interested in pursuing a career in journalism after completing his post-graduate degree. "I simply want to be on television," he firmly said. One of Rohit's professors told him after glancing at his portfolios, "You already know what will be taught here. " Hence, get a job."
He took his teacher's counsel to heart and began working for Radio as a result. In addition to his employment, he also had to keep up with his education. Sardana used to labor till the wee hours of the morning and go to school until the afternoon. As an ETV intern in Delhi, he went on to become a full-fledged employee. He began working at the same television network despite the fact that he was about to take his final semester test.
Although he enjoyed his work, he yearned to be doing something more and asked to be relocated to Hyderabad, where he was informed he would be trained as an anchor.
When he arrived in Hyderabad, he had to undergo an audition in Hindi, and his rival was from the southern Indian region. He was able to easily pass the audition because of his previous experience at Akashvani. After being trained for five months by a Japanese company, he went on to work as a video toaster editor. While the Gujarat state assembly elections were taking place, he served as an anchor for a local television station. As a result, he spent time learning Gujarati before being able to report on the Gujarat assembly elections in that language. Rohit was an assistant producer for Sahara Samay from 2003 to 2004.
In 2004, he was hired by Zee news, where he quickly became a favorite among viewers. On the Taal Thok Ke show, Sardana used to present a segment where he spoke about current events. In 2017, he made a move from Zee News to Aaj Tak. He presented a debating program on Aaj Tak called Dangal.
