Shikhar Dhawan sent me a friend request after seeing a picture of me in the boxing ring: Aesha Dhawan
The boxer said while it took five minutes for her to accept his request, he was the one to immediately start talking to her and she was left amazed.
Indian batsman Shikhar Dhawan is popularly known for his explosive batting and while a lot of fans know about his on-field, there are not many who know how he fell in love with his wife Aesha Dhawan, who also happens to be a boxer. Aesha, recently, on a talk show, said Shikhar actually sent her a friend request on Facebook before they actually got married to each other.
According to a recent report, Aesha said she first spoke to Shikhar on Facebook before they decided to get married to each other after he saw her in the boxing ring on a particular occasion. The boxer said while it took five minutes for her to accept his request, he was the one to immediately start talking to her and she was left amazed. While she was friends with all other older cricketers because she always loved cricket and sports in general, this was different for her.
However, their story wasn’t smooth sailing either because Aesha was a divorcee who was 10 years older and had two daughters. The couple are now happily married for six years and have a son Zorawar. Shikhar Dhawan will be seen in the upcoming final of the Asia Cup after being in sensational form scoring two centuries in the tournament.
