A resident of Rawalpindi in Pakistan, Sohaib Ahmed bought the lunar land in the region called ‘Sea of Vapour’ for $45 from the International Lunar Lands Registry for his wife as a wedding gift.
In an interview on SAMAA TV’s programme, Ahmed said he was inspired by late actor Sushant Singh Rajput, who had also purchased land on the moon in the Mare Muscoviense or the ‘Sea of Muscovy’ region.
Reacting to the gift, Madiha, , Ahmed’s wife, said her friends didn’t believe her when she told them about this unique gift.
She said, “ first everyone thought it was a joke, but then I showed them the documents and then they believed it,”
Daily Times gathered that moon land owners include, Tom Cruise, Shah Rukh Khan, John Travolta, Nicole Kidma and Sushant Singh Rajput.
