Born April 28, Sajith Raj did early part of his schooling in various cities across India including Coimbatore, Bangalore & Agra which wasn’t surprising considering the fact that his father Rajachandra Kurup worked for the Coveted Indian Air Force. His schooling finally steadied to Christ Nagar school in Trivandrum when Mr. Kurup started working for Vikram Sarabhai Space Centre (VSSC, a unit of ISRO) where his mother Sarala was already working for the Special Branch CID.
Sajith Raj was a computer whiz in school and his passion for computers and programming led him to develop various mini Computer games during his school days. His ingenuity and curiosity in computers led to the general assumption that a career in computers or such other disciplines was the future. He joined College of Engineering in Palakkad and obtained Bachelor of Technology in Mechanical Engineering.
But Destiny had something else in store for him. Modest modeling works during his campus days paved way for many modeling assignments and TV Shows in future. But Movies happened quite unexpectedly when a friend urged him to send his photos across to Dream Land Movies in Chennai. He was cast as the Main Lead for their Tamil Movie ‘Campus’. It took him just a while to realize his destiny and ever since he enjoys every minute of it.
