Shikhar Dhawan, the Indian cricketer who is very well known for his opening batting in international cricket, is the favorite of many cricket lovers. Shikhar Dhawan and Ayesha got married in 2012 and were blessed with a baby boy named ‘Zoravar’ in 2014. But recently, the batter opened up about his failed marriage with Ayesha Mukherjee. And also confirmed the rumors about his divorce.
But do you know who Aesha Mukherjee is? Here’s What We Know.
Aesha Mukerji was Born on August 27, 1975 in a middle class family. Her Father was Bengali whereas her mother is British descent. Her parents worked in an industrial plant and shifted to Australia after Ayesha’s birth.
Aesha is a Melbourne-based trained kickboxer and she is a fitness freak. Apart from this, she loves to get inked and has several tattoos on her body. Aesha loves cooking Indian food.
Aesha can speak Bengali very well despite the fact that she was brought up in Australia.
Aesha previously was married to an Australian businessman and has two daughters from her first marriage. After getting divorced in 2012, she married Shikhar Dhawan.
As per the Statesman, Aesha Mukerji and Shikhar Dhawan’s paths crossed through Facebook, thanks to their mutual acquaintance, Harbhajan Singh. Aesha’s love for cricket and shared interests with Harbhajan brought her closer to Shikhar. After facing initial challenges, including an age difference of 12 years, Shikhar managed to convince his family and the couple got married in October 2012. They had a traditional Sikh wedding, attended by various cricketers and celebrities.
However, on 4th October 2023, Shikhar Dhawan was granted divorce by a family court on grounds that his estranged wife Aesha Mukerji subjected him to mental cruelty.
The court said, “He (Dhawan) for no fault of his own had been through immense agony and anguish of living separately from his own son for years. Even though the wife denied the allegation, submitting that though she genuinely wanted to live in India with him, yet she did not choose to contest the claim. The respondent, by conducting herself in the manner, has inflicted such cruelty, agony and trauma on him, that it was impossible for the petitioner to save the marriage.”
