Siddharth (Actor) Wiki:- Siddharth was born on April 17, 1979, into a Tamil-speaking family in Madras, which is now known as Chennai, Tamil Nadu, India. He began his education at D.A.V. Boys Senior Secondary School in Madras and later attended Sardar Patel Vidyalaya in Delhi. He earned a Bachelor of Commerce (Honors) degree from Kirori Mal College, New Delhi.
During his college years, Siddharth actively engaged in extracurricular activities. He was the president of the college’s debating society and participated in the World Debating Championships. He pursued his MBA from S. P. Jain Institute of Management and Research in Mumbai. He even won a speaking skills competition, which led to him being awarded the CNBC Manager of the Year in 1999.
Siddharth’s initial connection with the media world came when he dubbed for a Banish mosquito repellent advertisement in eight different languages in 1988. This opportunity was introduced by Jayendra Panchapakesan, a close friend of his father and an ad director and filmmaker. From a young age, Siddharth had a strong interest in films, writing, and directing. He joined business school as a “safety cushion” under his father’s advice, even though he had a strong inclination towards a career in the film industry. During his time in Delhi, Siddharth briefly pursued amateur theatre with the Players theatre group. He participated in live stage performances, which allowed him to refine his writing and directing skills.
Siddharth Suryanarayan, known by the mononym Siddharth, is an Indian actor primarily active in Tamil, Telugu, and Hindi films. Beyond acting, he’s also worked as a screenwriter, producer, playback singer, and has appeared in various advertisements.
After completing his business management studies, Siddharth decided to pursue a career in filmmaking. He began by assisting renowned director Mani Ratnam and later made his acting debut in the Tamil film “Boys” (2003), directed by S. Shankar. Following the success of “Boys,” he gained further recognition with roles in Mani Ratnam’s “Aayutha Ezhuthu” (2004) and went on to receive critical acclaim and commercial success in Telugu and Hindi cinema through movies like “Nuvvostanante Nenoddantana” (2005), “Rang De Basanti” and “Bommarillu” (2006).
During the late 2000s, he established himself as a reliable lead actor in Telugu films and then became more selective with his projects. He garnered praise for his role as a carrom player in “Striker” (2010) and as a blind warrior in the fantasy film “Anaganaga O Dheerudu” (2011).
After a brief break, Siddharth returned to Tamil films and produced the commercially successful romantic comedy “Kadhalil Sodhappuvadhu Yeppadi” (2012). He had a notable year in 2014, receiving acclaim for his performances in “Jigarthanda,” portraying an aspiring filmmaker, and “Kaaviya Thalaivan,” where he played an actor from the 1920s Madras theater scene. He continued his career with films like the horror comedy “Aranmanai 2” (2016) and the Malayalam film “Kammara Sambhavam” (2018), written by Murali Gopy. In 2019, Siddharth appeared in two Tamil films: “Sivappu Manjal Pachai,” directed by Sasi, and “Aruvam,” directed by Sai Shekar.
