Shikhar Dhawan’s Emotional Birthday Note Reveals He Was Blocked From Contacting His Son After Divorce!

Indian opening batsman Shikhar Dhawan penned an emotional note on December 26, marking his son Zoravar’s birthday and disclosing the challenges he faces in contacting his nine-year-old. In a heartfelt Instagram post, Dhawan expressed pride in his son, accompanying the message with a photo of a video call between them.

The cricketer and his ex-wife, Ayesha Mukherjee, went their separate ways after an unsuccessful marriage, with the divorce officially granted in October of the current year. The court, in granting the divorce, cited ‘cruelty’ inflicted on Dhawan by his estranged wife, accepting his allegations, including claims of being kept away from their son and being coerced into financial decisions.

The court specifically mandated Ayesha to facilitate their son’s visits to India, allowing overnight stays with Dhawan and his family, particularly during school holidays. However, Dhawan has encountered difficulties in establishing communication with his son.

I’ve been blocked……Shikhar Dhawan!

“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,” Dhawan shared on Instagram.

“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. Love you loads Zora.”

Shikhar Dhawan’s Heartful Message for His Son Zorawar

Shikhar Dhawan Petition

Dhawan’s legal petition outlined Mukherjee’s commitments to her prior marriage and daughters in Australia as contributing to the physical and emotional distance during their eight-year union. Dhawan alleged that Mukherjee pressured him into significant investments in Australian properties.

In court, Mukherjee did not contest or defend against the allegations. While the court granted the divorce, it did not make a ruling on their son’s permanent custody, permitting Dhawan to spend time with Zoravar in India and Australia, encompassing overnight stays and video calls.

Dhawan and Mukherjee married in 2022, separating in 2020, and both parties have refrained from making public comments on the divorce.
