Shikhar Dhawan with his estranged wife Aesha Mukherji | TwitterDelhi’s Patiala House Court has restrained the estranged wife of Shikhar Dhawan from posting anything on social media or speaking about anything that would defame the cricketer’s reputation in public.

Dhawan and Aesha Mukerji, an Australian citizen, ended their marriage in 2021 and have a son together named Zoraver, who is in her custody in Australia.

The Indian opener had filed a plea in the court against Mukherji, citing that she had been threatening him to ruin his career, adding that she even circulated defamatory messages to IPL franchise Delhi Capitals CEO, Dheeraj Malhotra, with an aim to tarnish his reputation.

This has resulted in the Delhi court passing a judgment restraining Mukherji from posting anything defamatory against Dhawan on social media or to speak anything which could harm his status.

Judge Harish Kumar, however, said that if Mukerji has “real" grievances against Dhawan, she cannot be restrained from lodging them with the concerned authority.

In these circumstances, she is hereby restrained till further order from circulating any of her grievances against Dhawan or her version of the dispute involved herein or the alleged defamatory and false material against him in social media, print media or to any other forum or to friends, relatives or colleagues of the parties,” Judge Harish Kumar said.

Dhawan and Mukherji married in 2012 after meeting for the first time in 2009.
