Thanks to Dube's outstanding performances and his team's collective efforts, CSK clinched their record-equalling IPL trophy. As he reaches this milestone in his life, let's take a closer look at Shivam Dube's journey, personal life, and his aspirations to make a comeback to the national side. 


Early Life and Career 
Born on 26th June 1993, in Mumbai, Shivam Dube's passion for cricket started at a young age. He honed his skills playing at various local clubs and caught the attention of selectors with his exceptional talent. Dube made his Ranji Trophy debut for Mumbai in the 2017-2018 season and impressed everyone with his powerful strokeplay and ability to generate good pace with the ball. 

A Love Story Beyond Boundaries 
Not many are aware of Shivam Dube's love story, a tale that transcends religious barriers. In 2021, Dube tied the knot with his long-time girlfriend, Anjum Khan, in a beautiful inter-religious marriage. Anjum, a resident of Uttar Pradesh, is an actor and model who holds a degree in Fine Arts from Aligarh University. Their marriage gained widespread attention as the couple celebrated their union through Hindu and Muslim rituals. Despite facing criticism from some sections of society, Shivam and Anjum stood strong, supported by their families who had no issues with their inter-religious union. 

The Power Couple 
Since their marriage, Shivam and Anjum have been living together, sharing their lives and supporting each other's dreams. Their love story culminated in the birth of a baby boy, bringing immense joy to the couple. Although Shivam and Anjum kept their relationship private initially, they chose to share their beautiful love story with the world after their marriage, demonstrating their commitment to each other and breaking societal stereotypes.
