Love after Divorce  

Siddharth Sharma retired from international cricket at the age of 32 which is too early for any passionate cricket player. It was speculated that he had a rough patch with his wife Natasha Singh who was the top actress in Bollywood until she got married. The first few years went smoothly for Siddharth and Natasha. But the false rumors in the media about Natasha’s affair with her co-star Deepak Kumar began creating rift between her and Siddharth. 
After unending fights and disturbances the celebrity couple decided to part ways. They even broke down in the courtroom on the day of their divorce hearing. While Natasha continued her journey in the film industry as a lead actress , Siddharth on the other hand got addicted to alcohol and drugs. He spent almost a year in rehab in order to get rid of his addiction. 
After completing his last day as a patient in rehab Siddharth returned to his home town Patiala from Mumbai. In the flight a pretty girl in her mid-teens sat next to him dressed in a pink salwar kameez. She was surprised to find her favorite cricketer next to her. Unable to control her excitement she kissed Siddharth on both his cheeks. Although Siddharth was a bit embarrassed but he was fascinated by the girl’s natural beauty. She introduced herself as Shikha Dhawan a 1st year college student studying Bachelor of Arts in Economics. Siddharth was impressed by her excellent communication skills and quick wit. They even exchanged phone numbers which was certainly a big deal for Shikha.

For three consecutive years , Siddharth and Shikha remained good friends and on her 20th birthday he proposed her in front of everyone making it public even on social media. When asked about moving on from his divorce with Natasha , he replied that he deserved someone better than her which sparked a fresh controversy. However , Natasha preferred to remain silent over her ex-husband’s comments. 

Even though Siddharth and Shikha had a wide age difference that did not become an obstacle in their relationship. Both were madly in love with each other and wanted to get hitched as soon as possible. Siddharth continued playing the IPL post retirement and started hitting huge sixes rekindling his lost form and love for cricket. He gave the entire credit to his young ladylove Shikha who restored his faith in love after a bitter divorce.
