Indian gleaming opener Shikhar Dhawan has been nabbeb for a photo shoot in a sophisticated and intense look for the cover page of the men’s magazine GQ India. He has mentioned about his life and his childhood fun and games and his thoughts.

Shikhar, 28, has hit the fastest-ever debut Test century at Mohali last year and then he sprang up as a big one. “God has plans for me. That innings has changed my life.” He has stated in the magazine.

Shikhar has had a few tattoos on his body. He said, “I may get my children’s names on my back, but then that’s it, I’ll be done.”

Shikhar was recalling his horse and buggy days and speaking his heart out about his childhood when he acclimated “rip up people’s letters and place them down the gutter” and how on Diwali he used to put firecrackers in mailboxes and puffed them up.

His mother used to get outraged and began pounding him. But he would “enjoy the beating” instead of crying. And his mother got fouled up. “It never used to offend me, I would smile and she would grow more frustrated.” He said.

The issue which incorporated his interview will be available in the April edition of GQ India, which will hit the stands today.
