On his son Zoravar’s birthday, Shikhar Dhawan shared an emotional note, reflecting on the two years of being unable to stay in touch with his son. He revealed being blocked by his wife on online platforms, making it challenging to stay in touch with his child.
“It’s been a year since I saw you in person, and now, for almost three months, I’ve been blocked from everywhere so Posting the same picture to wish you, my boy, a very Happy Birthday. Even if I can’t connect with you directly, I connect with you through Telepathy. I am so proud of you, and I know you’re doing great and growing up nicely.” Shikhar Dhawan wrote.
“Papa always misses you and loves you. He’s always positive, waiting with a smile for the time when we will meet again by the Grace of God. Be naughty but not destructive, be a giver, be humble, compassionate, patient, and strong. Despite not seeing you, I write you messages almost every day, asking about your well-being and daily life, sharing what I’m doing and what’s new in my life.” Dhawan further added.

In 2012, Shikhar Dhawan married Ayesha, who was a divorcee with two daughters. They met on social media, started dating, and got married. In 2014, they had a son named Zoravar. The reported reason for their separation is financial issues.
According to reports, Ayesha was taking advantage of the cricketer’s finances and wanted him to give her sole ownership of three properties in Australia, purchased jointly by the couple. Shikhar Dhawan had reportedly funded the entire purchase. Despite being married to him, she wanted to live in Australia.
