Career[edit | edit source]

Adhiraj made his acting debut starring in television serials, before featuring in films including Ponnu Veetukkaran and Roja Kootam. Throughout the 2000s, he became an established television and live event host.[1]

Suzhal, directed by his father the late Shri Anand Mohan and written by him, launched him into the limelight. It was followed by Nimmadhi Ungal Choice, produced by AVM Productions and directed by Shri Sp. Muthuraman. Ganesh-Vasanth, written by Sujatha, produced by Madras Talkies and directed by Suhasini Manirathnam, helped establish his credentials as an actor.

Chithi, produced by Radaan Mediaworks, established him as a sought after television star, and gave him the title "Superstar" of the small screen.

He finished as runner up in the reality dance show Jodi Number One during season 1, alongside his wife, Rachana.[2][3]

He has since directed a film, Puthagam, which starred Sathya, Jagapati Babu and Rakul Preet Singh in the lead roles. Adhiraj wrote the script in 1998, but was advised by his peers, including Crazy Mohan, to wait before launching the production.[4] The film had a low key release in January 2013 and received average reviews from critics.[5]

He has hosted many famous functions, including the Littleshows Award.
