Sija Rose is an Indian actress, who mostly appears in Malayalam and Tamil films. She has also hosted a few shows in Malayalam.

Early life[edit]

Sija completed her schooling from Indian school al wadi al kabir in Muscat, Oman. Sija Rose wanted to follow her father’s footsteps and pursue journalism. She completed her graduation from Mumbai.[1]


After completing her graduation, she was in Kerala for holiday. During that period, she got the opportunity to do modelling and appeared in a few TV commercials which led to her getting a film offer.[2] Her debut venture was the Kannada film Magadi in 2012. In her first Malayalam film Ustad Hotel, she played a small role as Dulquar Salman's sister. Also in 2012, she made her Tamil debut in Kozhi Koovuthu,[3] playing a village belle called Thulasi.[2]

In 2013, she had three releases on the same day: debut director N. K. Gireesh’s Nee Ko Njaa Cha, Annayum Rasoolum and Rajesh Amanakara’s Entry. While she was the female lead in Nee Ko Njaa Cha,[4] in which she did the role of a hotel receptionist,[5] she was seen in supporting roles in Annayum Rasoolum and Entry.[6][5] "It’s about a simple girl who values Indian culture and traditions," said the actress, who has also played a role in Bhadrasanam, a sequel of Anandabhadram. Her next two releases were the Tamil films Masani and Madhavanum Malarvizhiyum in which she was seen as a Bharatanatyam dancer.[7] Thereafter she worked as an assistant director with Rajesh Pillai for the Hindi film Traffic and did not accept any acting offers in the meantime.[8] After the completion of Traffic she signed her next film, Bijith Bala's debut venture Nellikka in which she plays Priya, the love interest of lead actor Deepak.[9] She has also signed up the period-drama Ennu Ninte Moideen based on the real life love story of Moideen and Kanchanamala.[10]
