India and Delhi Capitals opener Shikhar Dhawan’s wife Ayesha Mukherjee announced on social media that the couple’s marriage of eight years was over. Dhawan wasn’t too concerned about the storm around his personal life as he is currently in the UAE with the rest of the Delhi Capitals team ahead of the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2021 resumption later this month. Dhawan tried to pat away the issue of his divorce as well, just like his nonchalant batting both for India and DC.
However, he sent a cryptic message through his Instagram post on Wednesday (September 8). Dhawan wrote in his Instagram post, “Kisi bhi mukaam ko paane ke liye poora jaan, samjh, dil lagta hai. Pyaar hona chaiyeh apna kaam ke towards tabhi barkhat aati hain aur enjoyment bhi. Keep on working hard to turn your dreams into reality.”

During their limited-overs series against Sri Lanka in July, the Delhi southpaw led the Indian side. As a result, the Dhawan-led side won the ODI series. However, lost a closely-fought T20 series in Lanka.
Before Dhawan’s post, Ayesha made the official announcement of divorce via an Instagram post which started with, “I THOUGHT DIVORCE WAS A DIRTY WORD UNTIL I BECAME A 2 TIME DIVORCEE.” Ayesha said in the post, “Funny how words can have such powerful meanings and associations. I experienced this firsthand as a divorcee. The first time I went through a divorce I was soooooooo f**kn scared. I felt like I had failed and I was doing something so wrong at that time.”
“So now imagine, I have to go through it a second time. Woooahhhhhh. That is terrifying. Being divorced once before already, felt like I had more at stake the second time around. I had more to prove. So when my second marriage broke down it was really scary. All the feelings I felt when I went through it the first time came flooding in. Fear, failure and disappointment x 100,” she went on to write. Later, Ayesha’s Instagram post went on to offer help to all those women who were struggling to cope with separation in their marriage.

Is it due to shikhar’s downfall in recent times. If so its a shame on her part

The ‘modern’-day unions have become more prone to divorces than the yesteryears. The concepts of adjustment, compromise and maturity seem to be missing. We are rearing our generation with the wrong set of ideals. #ShikharDhawan
