Adithya Menon (born 6 April 1974), often credited as Adithya, is an Indian film actor who appears in Tamil, Telugu, Malayalam, Kannada and Hindi films.[1][2][3]

Early life[edit]

Adithya Menon was born in Mumbai to a Malayali family hailing from Palghat in Kerala. His family later immigrated to Dubai, UAE and he spent his childhood in Dubai till the age of 18. He finished his schooling there in the Our Own English High School Dubai and then migrated back to India. He went to college in Bangalore at the M. S. Ramaiah Institute of Technology, where he did his degree in engineering.[4][5] He has been an Atheist from early childhood as is revealed by him on his blog.[6] He is a staunch rationalist and is often seen debating on Indian News Channels.[7][8][9]

While in college, he auditioned for a slot at being a radio host with Radio Midday. That was his first stint in the media. Soon he started hosting live events like fashion shows and product launches. He worked as a compere and event manager for a few years after getting out of college. During this period he got into armature theatre in Bangalore and acted in a few plays before being spotted by a co-actor Prakash Belawadi to star in a Kannada Television serial he was to direct for the then launching ETV Kannada. Adithya first faced a camera for this serial that was called Mussanjeya Kathaprasanga. Subsequently, he was featured as the protagonist for another television serial called Soorya Shikari on the same channel directed by noted comedian Sihi Kahi Chandru.[10][11]

He shifted to Chennai in 2001 and scouted for work as an actor. He first appeared in a television serial on Sun TV called Thanthira Bhoomi directed by C. Jerrold and produced by Radaan Mediaworks India Limited. He then won a role in the famous TV Serial Anni directed by director K. Balachander. He kept trying to get into cinema and managed to get two movies as a newcomer. He was cast in Anjaneya and Jay Jay at the same time.[12][13]

In 2014, he garnered attention for playing the lead role in Main Hoon Part-Time Killer,[14] which garnered controversy for its previous title of Main Hoon Rajinikanth.[15][16][17][18]
