Jamshad Cethirakath, better known by his stage name Arya, was born 11 December 1980 and is an Indian actor and producer who predominantly appears in Tamil films.
While working as an assistant software engineer, Arya was approached by the cinematographer Jeeva to audition for his Ullam Ketkumae in 2003. The pair had lived in the same neighbourhood. Arya signed on for the project and was given the stage name by Jeeva.The film was unfortunately delayed.
As such, Arya's first appearance was as Kutty, in Vishnuvardhan's Arinthum Ariyamalum produced by our very own announcer Gheetha.The film featured Arya as the adopted rogue son of a gangster .
Critics reported that Arya in a supporting role "walks away with all the applause" and "has everything in him to make the big league".
In an interview several years later, Arya also stated, "If people know Arya, it is because of the ‘Thee pidika’ track”, a song from the film's soundtrack, crediting to its Yuvan Shankar Raja.
He made his breakthrough portraying rogue characters in Arinthum Ariyamalum (2005) and Pattiyal (2006). He later won critical acclaim for playing an Aghori in Bala's Naan Kadavul (2009). Arya gained further success with the release of the period drama Madrasapattinam (2010), the comedy film Boss Engira Bhaskaran (2010), family drama film Vettai (2012) and Atlee's family film Raja Rani (2013).
In 2013, he appeared in three more Tamil films: Settai, Arrambam and Selvaraghavan's fantasy film Irandam Ulagam. Recently, he appeared in Pa. Ranjith's sports film Sarpatta Parambarai as a main lead, which garnered him high critical acclaim.
Arya and his wife Sayyeshaa welcomed their baby girl recently. The news of their newest family member was confirmed by actor Vishal. He took to Twitter to send the couple his wishes.
Arya and Sayyeshaa fell in love during the shoot of their Tamil romantic comedy Ghajinikanth. In March 2019, the couple tied the knot in a grand ceremony in Hyderabad.
