Suraj Sharma is an Indian actor. As a young boy, Suraj displayed a strong ability in music and trained in Hindustani vocal and tabla, as well as the keyboard and guitar.

He has a brother and sister, who are both younger than him.

Suraj trained in karate under the tutelage of Senpai Khurshid Alam, acquiring a Junior Black Belt in the Seido Karate School by the age of 13. He excelled in katha – the dance-like movements used for rehearsing karate moves – and earned accolades performing Kalaripayattu, an Indian martial art and one of the oldest fighting systems in existence. He’s an avid soccer player, participating in sport all throughout his school years. In addition to his love of sports, Suraj has a strong aesthetic sense, often advising family and friends on matters of style and design.

Extremely popular among his schoolmates, Suraj actively campaigned for his friends who were seeking school executive office. While known among his peers for his happy-go-lucky attitude, his enthusiasm and his readiness to play the clown and to entertain, Suraj is also a gentle and emotional young man.

Suraj, who was 17 years old during much of LIFE OF PI’s production, actually found himself celebrating his 18th birthday with the film’s crew in the midst of shooting LIFE OF PI’s lifeboat scenes in the massive outdoor wave tank built in Taiwan for the movie. As far as future plans, Suraj is entering his freshman year at Delhi University’s St. Stephen’s College.
