Early life[edit]

Salim Kumar was born on 10 October 1969 in North Paravur, as the youngest son of Gangadharan and Kausalya (Both deceased). He once told in an interview that his father was an atheist and a follower of the veteran social reformer Sahodaran Ayyappan, and so that he named him Salim Kumar not to know his religion. He attended the Govt. Lower Primary School, Chittattukara North Paravur and went to high school at the Govt. Boys High School, North Paravur. He completed his Pre-Degree education from Sree Narayana Mangalam College Malyankara, Moothakunnam. He wanted to become a singer at a young age but later took up mimicry.
