Shekhar Kapur: I Am Completely Dyslexic
MUMBAI, (ANI) – It takes a lot of courage to acknowledge diseases in public, especially for celebrities, who are prone to be judged for their choices.
Director Shekhar Kapur has revealed in a tweet that he suffers from dyslexia. He tweeted on May 8, “Lessons of Life: I’m completely dyslexic. And finding more and more artists, poets, and musicians suffer from dyslexia too. Are you? With #AI (Artificial Intelligence) I’ve developed a love for visual mathematics, but in school developed a hatred for Maths…of course! With #dyslexia, numbers made little sense.”
Shekhar’s tweet created a stir among netizens. Many people expressed their views on his post.
“I am dyslexic, and developed love for business math because it had a goal. Traditional math’s still gives me nightmares,” wrote a Twitterati.
Another person wrote, “Kudos for awareness and converting into Unfathomable creativity with rare sensitivity!”
Another netizen wrote, “Shekhar, you don’t need AI, for that, there are other techniques, too.”
Shekhar recently directed the British romantic comedy ‘What’s Love Got to Do with It’. The film’s screenplay has been written by former Pakistan Prime Minister Imran Khan’s ex-wife Jemima Goldsmith.
Shabana Azmi has acted alongside British actor Lily James and Pakistani actor Sajal Aly in the movie.
Last year, the film premiered at the Toronto film festival, where the film received two standing ovations.
