Shikhar Dhawan is known to be a doting father. On Thursday, he posted an emotional message for his son on a video that showed him screaming excitedly on seeing Dhawan while the national anthem was being played before India’s second ODI against New Zealand in Pune.
Dhawan said in the post that he wishes he could hug his son right there. It is evident from the video, though, that Zoraver is with his mother Ayesha Mukherjee, who is based in Melbourne, Australia. “Is that papa?” asks Zoravar when Dhawan comes into the frame while the camera pans on the Indian team.
“Dil bhar aaya video dekh ke, jis tareeke se woh mujhe dhoondh rha hai.wish zoraver ko gale laga sakta main aur khoob pyaar de sakta. Mera pyaar aur duyaaein hamesha mere bachon ke saath hain …love u all. (Loved the video, the way he is searching for me. Wish I could hug Zoraver and give him lots of love. My live and wishes is always with my children)” wrote Dhawan along with the video.
Seeing the video, Dhawan’s opening partner Rohit Sharma commented saying, “Apne bhavnao ko sambhalo jatt ji”
To this Dhawan replied, “Emotions toh achi chiz hai mere bhai, jisne pyaar nai kiya usne khaak kiya”
