The Mr India director, who is an avid social media user, posted this on Twitter on Monday while talking about his life lessons. He said he was thankful for not being admitted to any special school.


“Lessons of Life : I’m completely dyslexic. And finding more and more artists poets musicians suffer from dyslexia too. Are you? With #AI I’ve developed a love for visual mathematics, but in school developed a hatred for Maths…ofcourse ! With #dyslexia numbers made little sense,” wrote the 77-year-old director.

Shekhar's last directorial was the English-language romcom film What’s Love Got to Do with It?, which was released last year. The film featured Shabana Azmi, Emma Thompson, Lily James, Shazad Latif, Sajal Aly, Oliver Chris, Asim Chaudhry, Jeff Mirza, Alice Orr-Ewing and Rahat Fateh Ali Khan.
