Amid lockdown, cricketers have increased their social media presence by regularly posting something to entertain their fans and followers. In the process, Indian opener Shikhar Dhawan took to Instagram – a photo and video-sharing social networking platform – to wish his step-daughter Aliyah happy birthday with a unique post.


The 34-year-old explosive batsman shared a video on Tuesday, in which he can be seen dancing with his daughter. Aliyah, though looked shy while shaking her legs but the chemistry between the father and daughter was completely visible as she burst into laughter before completing the dance step.

Shikhar captioned the video with a heartwarming message addressing Aliyah as ‘Angel’ and wished her to shine like a star.


“Happy birthday, my angel! May you forever sparkle and shine like the star that you are. I miss you so much. Take care and enjoy your day,” wrote Shikhar.

Shikhar’s many fans and followers also wished Aliyah with lovely comments, but one response took away all the limelight, and it came from the birthday girl herself.


“Thanks for choosing this video lol. Love u so much papa miss u,” Aliyah replied on Shikhar’s Instagram post along with two red heart emojis.

Shikhar is quite active on social media, and often shares videos with his family members.

Recently, the Delhi-born batter shared a video featuring his son Zoravar who was seen helping his father to sweep dust off the floor with the help of a remote-controlled car.


Shikhar posted the video and hailed his son’s intelligence for using the new idea. He even termed Zoravar as the real boss.

“Zoraver ne dikha diya ki boss kaun hai. What an idea sir jee,” Dhawan captioned the funny video.
