The Love Story of
Ayesha Mukherjee and Shikhar Dhawan
It is rightly said, love can happen anywhere. This time it happened over internet. Shikhar was browsing through Facebook when he came across Ayesha Mukherjee’s profile. It is not surprising that Shikhar got bowled over by her looks as she is actually very beautiful.
He decided to send her a friend request and she accepted. Shikhar’s teammate and very close friend Harbhajan Singh was their mutual friend and played the cupid in this case by introducing them to each other.
Later they started talking and got attracted towards each other more and more. They discovered they share a lot of common interests. Just like Ayesha, Shikhar too is fond of tattoos, fitness, delicious food and fashion. These brought them closer and soon they both were head over heels in love. The fact that Ayesha is older than Shikhar by 10 years, didn’t become a barrier for them. Did you know Sachin Tendulkar is also 6 years younger than his wife Anjali ?
Ayesha Mukherjee and Shikhar Dhawan’s marriage was not a cake walk and that is what makes it special and different from other marriages. Shikhar’s family members were totally against the marriage. The first reason was their huge age gap and second, ofcourse that she was a divorcee with two children. But his mother Sunaina Dhawan supported their relationship a lot.
Shikhar didn’t want to do this without his family’s consent. So after a lot of persuasion and drama, the Dhawan family agreed to the marriage. They finally got engaged in 2009.
Shikhar asked for Ayesha’s consent to postpone their marriage as he wanted to secure a good position in the Indian Cricket Team first. Ayesha agreed to the idea too as she felt Shikhar should get comfortable with her daughters before becoming their step fathers. The couple finally got married on 30th October, 2012 after an wait for 3 years.
Their wedding was very simple and low key affair. They got married in a very traditional way, following all the customs and rituals required to be followed in a Sikh wedding. Although their reception party was grand and had a huge guest list, including the cricketers and celebrities. We even saw Virat Kohli dancing on his baraat.
Ayesha Mukherjee wore an elegant pink lehenga with a big, round red bindi on her forehead, which complimented her Bengali features. They got married at Vasant Kunj, New Delhi.
Ayesha and her two daughters have really been proved lucky for Shikhar Dhawan. The proof is some remarkable performances on the cricket field by him post his marriage. Remember when he scored 5 ODI centuries in 2013 , in just 28 matches. At that time he also scored fastest test hundred. He achieved this by breaking Gundappa Viswanath’s Indian test record of the highest score by a debutant. He himself has admitted that she has been his strength throughout his career. He feels lucky to have her in his life.
Shikhar Dhawan also supports her in every way. He stood by her side when she was going through a critical surgery. He even posted on Twitter how hard and stressful it was for him to keep up hope in such critical situation. He was relieved when the surgery was successful.

Ayesha Mukherjee is really proud of her husband, Shikhar Dhawan and supports him in every aspect. In an interview she was asked how Shikhar Dhawan has improved after his marriage as a cricketer ? Her reply was simple. She said that he has always been the same person. He is a caring guy who works hard towards his dreams to make it big in life. This has nothing to do with his marriage. He has really worked hard for the position he is in now. He knows the art of balancing work and personal life. She also claimed that she is really very happy with him. The quality she likes the most in him is his problem solving abilities. He is also a very domesticated person who devotes time for his wife and kids.
