Jeeva born as Amar B. Choudry on 4 January 1984.
Jeeva is an Indian film actor who predominantly appears in Tamil-language films. Son of film producer R. B. Choudry, he started his career as a child actor in his father's films in 1996.
Jiiva was born as Amar to film producer R. B. Choudry and Mahjabeen on 4 January 1984 in Chennai, Tamil Nadu as the youngest of four sons. His eldest brother B. Suresh is the co-producer in their home banner Super Good Films, while his second eldest brother Jeevan is an entrepreneur in the steel industry. His third brother is Githan Ramesh, who is also an actor in the Tamil film industry. On 21 November 2007, Jeeva married his childhood friend Supriya in New Delhi, with whom he has a son (born 14 October 2010).
Jeeva had a hairbreadth escape from death during the shooting of his film 'E'. (16.03.06).
Jeeva's blockbuster movie "Raam" was one of the highest grossing movies of the year. It was screened at Indian Panorama and at the Cyprus International Film Festival(CIFF), where it won two awards – the Best Actor award for Jeeva and the Best Musical Score Award for its Music director Yuvan Shankar Raja. It was the first ever acting award Jeeva received.
" Acting was never on my agenda. I wanted to do a course in special effects and work on those lines. I even got admission to the Vancouver Film School after completing courses in web designing, multimedia, etc in India. That was when my father was planning the fiftieth film of 'Super Good Films'. When the director offered me the lead role in Aasai Aasaiyai, I accepted."
Jeeva debut performance as a film hero was his fatherâ€™s 50th production, Aasai Aasaiyai. Jeeva 2nd film Thithikuthe, a Tamil remake of Uday Kiran's Telugu film Manasanta Nuvve, was also from his fatherâ€™s banner, Super Good Films. Jeeva has three older brothers: B.Sursh is the joint producer in Super Good Films. Another brother Jeevan is a business magnate. Next is Ramesh. Jeeva is also anactor, now known as Githan Ramesh. Jeeva started off as a child star in 2 of his father's film productions, one of them being the Sarath Kumar blockbuster Sooryavamsam. Audiences remember Jeeva as the cute boy who brought an estranged father and son together in Sooryavamsam.
He is the youngest and inarguably the cutest with the boyish charms and killer smile that made people stand up to notice in his debut film Aasai Aasaiyai itself. Jeeva's father, R B Choudary, produced numerous films, introduced now-famous directors and heroes and is a noted South Indian film producer despite having Hindi as mother tongue and hailing from Rajasthan, a north Indian state.After Aasai Aasaiyai and Thittikudhey, which were romantic Tamil flops, he found himself in a spot of bother, with no good film offers coming his way.
Then in 2005, he came back with the mega blockbuster Raam which put him in contention with other young actors in Kollywood like Jayam Ravi, Bharath and Silambarasan. Raam was a one-of-a-kind Tamil movie by critically acclaimed director of the 2002 sleeper hit Mounam Pesiyathe, Ameer Sultan; it falls in the genre of a murder mystery thriller, yet it is primarily a character study. He played Ramakrishna, an autistic schoolboy, desired by the rich girl next door and later accused by her father for murdering his own mother.
Jeeva hardly talked throughout the movie, letting his body language demonstrate his character. The movie was one of the highest grossing movies of the year, it was screened at Indian Panorama and later at the Cyprus International Film Festival(CIFF), where it won two awards – the Best Actor award for Jeeva and the Best Musical Score Award for its Music director Yuvan Shankar Raja. For 22-year old, it was not only the first International Award he received, but also his first ever acting award.
The only other time a Tamil actor received an international award was when Legendary actor Sivaji Ganesan received the Best Actor Award for his film in 1959, Veerapandiya Kattabomman, at the Afro-Asian International Film Festival in Cairo, Egypt in 1960.
Thanks to Raam and Jeeva, this was indeed an honour for Kollywood in 21st century. From then onwards, he has had a successful stint in Dishyum with Kaadhal actress, Sandhya, proving a musical hit. Jeeva played another different role in Dishyum, that of a stuntman in films, this role was different from usual heroic roles in Tamil Cinema.
Although the title Dishyum gave viewers the impression of an action-packed film, Dishyum was predominantly a romance between that of a cocksure stuntman and a practical arts student.
This film won accolades due to the remarkable acting and an impressionable direction by Sasi, director of former hits such as Sollamalae and Roja Kootam.
Among his films, Raam, Dishyum, Keerthi Chakra and E are the ones that have done well at the box office. Jeeva's flops include Aasai Aasaiyai, Thittikudhey, and Pori. Hence, his hits and misses are balanced. Aran was not a flop it was considered a success and his upcoming films are Thamizh MA, Thenavattu and Rameswaram. Jeeva is considered a better actor than his brother Ramesh.
