Shikhar Dhawan is currently recovering from a knee injury but he didn’t shy away from shaking a leg with some children. “There’s always a child inside you,” Shikhar Dhawan captioned a video on Instagram, dancing with some children. “I loved spreading happiness to the world and it was lovely to see these kids dancing and expressing themselves by bringing out their inner beauty,” the Indian opener added. In the adorable video, most of the kids are seen with huge smiles on their faces as they dance with the cricket star, who is in his usual cheerful avatar.
