This Is How Shikhar Dhawan Fell In Love With A Mother Of Two

It is said that 'love has no age, no race, and no labels'. And it is also said that everything is fair in love and war. I really feel happy to pen down a real life love story which proves that love is independent of age, caste, race and anything else, coz love has its own language and a different world. This love story literally inspired me and made me believe that yes, true love exists on this planet and there are people who can literally cross 'Saat Samundar' to be with the love of their life. Indian opener, Shikhar Dhawan's love story was a journey full of hurdles. He went on to cross all the limits to hold his partner's hand forever. The man of guts, Shikhar Dhawan, fought all the odds to marry his wife(now) Ayesha Mukherjee and to live happily ever after with her.Let's take a look at the journey of the union of this beautiful couple of Shikhar Dhawan and Ayesha Mukherjee.

From where it all started?

It is said that the duo first interacted on Facebook and the bridge between the two was Indian spinner, Harbhajan Singh, who was the mutual friend of Ayesha Mukherjee and Shikhar Dhawan. This is how this beautiful couple took the first step in a relationship.Nobody knew that this friendship would take them towards a blissful life. 

Soon the cupid struck!

Ayesha Mukherjee is 10 years elder to Shikhar Dhawan. She is a divorcee and is a mother of two daughters from her first marriage. Despite such a huge age gap and a broken marriage, they were destined to grow closer to each other, and soon the love blossomed between the two. 

Love at first sight!

It is said that Shikhar Dhawan fell in love with Ayesha, at the very moment when he saw her photograph for the first time, and he decided to put a step forward to speak his heart out. But Shikhar wasn't much sure about Ayesha's reaction on his feeling for her. Because even before Ayesha and Shikhar got in touch via Facebook, he never thought of Ayesha being friends with him. Read more to know the reason why Shikhar Dhawan was unsure of Ayesha accepting his friend request.

Ayesha, the wrestler!

FYI, Ayesha Mukherjee is an Australian of Indian origin. She is a trained kick boxer and has a flair for sports. And when Shikhar came to know about Ayesha being a boxer, he felt that why would an Australian Boxer agree on being friends with a Cricketer. But as they were destined to come together, Ayesha and Shikhar quickly became friends, and this budding friendship didn't take much time to reach to the next level. 

Jab Bengal & Punjab met!

When the Bengali beauty Ayesha and Punjab da puttar, Shikhar Dhawan, fell for each other, a sizzling love story was obvious to take place and when the cupid struck this duo, their union didn't turn out to be a child's play. 

Their love faced many obstacles!

Looking at Ayesha's past where she divorced her first husband and father of her daughters, Dhawan's family didn't support his decision to marry Ayesha. Ergo, Shikhar and Ayesha went through a lot before tying the knot. 

The power of  true love!

But Shikhar and Ayesha truly loved each other. Especially Shikhar who accepted Ayesha with her past, he made sure his family agrees on accepting Ayesha as a part of Dhawan family. Eventually, the duo got engaged in the year 2009.But marriage wasn't on the cards yet, because...

When they got married?

Ayesha and Shikhar exchanged the rings way back in the year 2009 but tied the knot in the year 2012, only after Shikhar established himself firmly in the Indian cricket team.

Despite a rigid oppose from his parents' end...

Shikhar didn't leave Ayesha and her daughters and made his family believe in their relationship. Shikhar and Ayesha are now happily married. 

Shikhar is surely a gem of a person!

Shikhar didn't just love Ayesha but also became the father of her daughters from previous marriage. During an interview, Shikhar proudly confessed that, "Meri Kismat mein thi meri do betiyaan toh woh ekdum se meri zindagi main aa gayi, today the way they love me, I feel so fortunate."

All's well, that ends well!

The family welcomed the little bundle of joy, in the year 2014, when Ayesha gave birth to Shikhar's son Zoravar. This family is surely a perfect one now!
