Shikhar Dhawan Opens Up About Emotional Struggle of Being Away from Son Zoravar

Indian cricket veteran Shikhar Dhawan recently shared a deeply personal note on social media, expressing the emotional challenges of being away from his son, Zoravar, on the occasion of the young boy’s ninth birthday. The post quickly went viral, resonating with fans and drawing an outpouring of support for the cricketer.

In a candid podcast conversation on the Humans of Bombay podcast, Dhawan revealed that the post was not about pain but rather an expression of his inner thoughts. He explained that after five months of no communication with his son, he wanted to send love to Zoravar without transmitting any negative energy. Dhawan expressed his hope that in the era of technology, his son might read his post and know that his father wishes for his happiness.

Dhawan said, “I was not in pain. I was just expressing my thoughts. It has been five months since I have spoken to him, I was just expressing emotions. I am an emotional guy and I was just trying to send love to him, because if I will be sad while thinking about him that negative energy will get him. I never realized that this post will go viral. I just wrote it from my heart.”

Despite the emotional distance, Dhawan emphasized that he cares deeply for his son and continues to write messages to him every day, even though he is uncertain whether they are reaching Zoravar. Dhawan, who got divorced from his ex-wife Ayesha Mukherjee last year, acknowledged that he misses his son and feels sad but has learned to live with the situation. He emphasized that he is a father trying to fulfill his duties towards Zoravar, despite the challenges.

“I write it with a hope that in an era of technology my son might end up reading my post. Wherever he is, I hope he is happy hopefully one day he would 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,” Dhawan said in the candid conversation.

Reflecting on his limited time with his son due to various constraints, Dhawan expressed his desire to have more time with Zoravar, longing for the opportunity to hug him and spend quality time together. His story has resonated with many fans, highlighting the personal challenges faced by public figures like cricketers, which often go beyond the boundaries of the cricket field.

As Dhawan prepares to lead the Punjab Kings (PBKS) team in the upcoming 2024 Indian Premier League (IPL), his openness about his personal struggles adds a human touch to his public persona, showcasing a side of him that goes beyond the realm of cricket.

The heartfelt post and Dhawan’s honest reflections have sparked conversations about the challenges of balancing a high-profile career with personal life, resonating with many who admire his strength and resilience in the face of adversity.
