After disappointing his family by not going into medicine, Shekhar has played doctors in many Films & TV shows, most recently as Dr. Hook in season 3 of Superman & Lois. As well he’s worked in theatres across Canada, including Bard on the Beach, CanStage, Arts Club, Manitoba Theatre Centre, Belfry, Globe, Vancouver Playhouse, and ATP. Shekhar is also an author and playwright—his novel, An Extraordinary Destiny, was published in 2017 by Brindle & Glass; he’s had two children’s books published by Annick Press; and VACT recently produced a workshop of Shekhar’s new play about cancel culture and historic statues Gandhi & Churchill’s Excellent Adventure!
