Experienced Indian batter Shikhar Dhawan, who is set to captain the Punjab Kings (PBKS) in the forthcoming season of the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2023, shared an interesting anecdote of his personal life during a recent interview.
Shikhar Dhawan who is known for his hilarious element on social media and stylish tattoos on his body, disclosed that he visited Manali for an HIV test back when he was a kid.
“When I was 14-15 years old, I had gone to Manali and got a tattoo done on my back without informing my family members. I had to hide it for quite some time, about 3-4 months, and then when my father got to know, he beat me.
I got a bit scared after doing the tattoo because I had no clue about the number of bodies that needle had pierced. So then I went and did an HIV Test and it’s negative to date (laughs),” said on the show ‘Seedhi Baat’ of Aaj Tak.
