“It’s been a year since I saw you in person, and now, for almost three months, I’ve been blocked from everywhere so Posting the same picture to wish you, my boy, a very Happy Birthday. Even if I can’t connect with you directly, I connect with you through Telepathy. I am so proud of you, and I know you’re doing great and growing up nicely,”
Dhawan wrote on Instagram.
The heartfelt post resonated with many, shedding light on the emotional challenges of separation and the longing for parental connection.
