- Shekhar’s home was not far away from Jagjit Singh’s home. Thus, his family was close friends with the now deceased Ghazal singer.

- Shekhar ‘first’ met Vishal Dadlani, his future partner, at a studio when the two accidentally bumped into each other. Though Vishal’s face looked familiar to him, he was unable to recall their initial meeting.

While Shekhar was tasked to play the keyboard, Vishal was the lead guitarist of the band.

- In an interview, Shekhar said that sometimes because of his work commitments, he feels trapped and wants to disconnect from people/society. Therefore, once in every two months, he takes a flight to London and spends some days there in seclusion. This way, he says, he gets some rest as well.
