When Shikhar Dhawan penned a heartfelt post on his son’s birthday

Shikhar Dhawan was granted divorce from his former wife, Aesha Mukerji by the Delhi Court in October 2023 on the grounds of ‘cruelty’ and ‘mental agony’ inflicted on him by his ex-wife. The court had ordered Aesha to bring their son to India for visitation purposes and also granted Shikhar mandatory visitation rights to meet Zoravar in India and Australia. Meanwhile, in December 2023, on his son’s birthday, he shared a heartfelt note expressing how he had not met his son for over a year. 

When Shikhar Dhawan revealed that he writes messages to his son every day

Earlier in 2024, the cricketer sat for an interview with the Humans of Bombay. During their conversation, Shikhar talked about his ‘detached’ relationship with his 10-year-old son. He said that he wrote messages to his son every day, but he doesn’t have any expectations of his son reading those texts ultimately. In his words:

“Wherever he is, I hope he is happy, hopefully one day he will come and see me. I am in love with him but at the same time, I am also detached. I don't want to push him. I write messages to him every day, I don't know whether he is receiving those or not, whether he is reading it or not. I don't have any expectations. I have accepted it. I am a father, and I am trying to do my duty. I miss him, I feel sad but I have learnt to live with it.”
