Shikhar Dhawan, the seasoned Team India opener, has said that his marriage failed because he was unable to recognize the warning signs when he first fell in love. He said he was responsible for their failing relationship and that it had taught him a valuable lesson.

Aesha Mukerji, an amateur kickboxer from Melbourne, fell in love with Dhawan. In 2012, the couple exchanged vows. Two daughters from her prior marriage were raised by Mukerji, who was 12 years older than Dhawan. However, the pair divorced in September 2021.

Dhawan spoke candidly about his failing marriage in an interview with Aaj Tak. The Indian player refused to blame anyone, saying: “I failed because the final decision is the person’s own. I don’t point fingers at others. I failed because I was not aware of that field. The things I talk about cricket today, I wouldn’t have been aware of the same 20 years back. It comes with experience,” Dhawan said. 

“Right now my divorce case is going on. Tomorrow, if I want to marry again, I will be much more wiser in that field. I’ll know what kind of girl I need; someone whom I can spend my life with. When I was 26-27 and I was continuously playing, I was not in any relationship. I used to have fun but was never in a relationship. So, when I fell in love, I couldn’t see the red flags. But today, if I fall in love, I will be able to see those red flags. So, if I see those red flags, I will walk out. If not, I will carry on” Shikhar Dhawan added.

Shikhar Dhawan provides youngsters with relationship advice:

Shikhar Dhawan advised young people in relationships to take their time and not rush into marriage, speaking from personal experience. He emphasized the significance of getting to know the person you intend to spend the rest of your life with thoroughly. The batter, a lefty, explained: “Youngsters, when they get into relationships, they need to experience it. That’s important. They should not take an emotional decision in haste and get married”

“Spend a couple of years with the person and see whether your cultures match and whether you enjoy each others’ company. It’s also like a match; some might need 4-5 relationships, and others might take 8-9 to figure things out. There is nothing bad about that. You will learn from it, and when you take a decision on marriage, you will have some experience,” Shikhar Dhawan concluded.

Shikhar Dhawan is one of the most successful cricketers in the Indian cricket team. He has been a part of the team since 2013 and has been a crucial part of the team’s success. He is also known for his flamboyant batting style and has been a fan favourite for a long time.
