Full Biography of Actor Shaam

Shamshuddin Ibrahim, known professionally as Shaam (born April 4, 1977) is a Tamil film actor and model. Starting his career as a professional model, he soon made his acting debut in the film Khushi (2000), appearing in a cameo role. He further appeared in lead roles in critically and commercially successful films such as 12B, Anbe Anbe, Iyarkai, Ullam Ketkumae and the Telugu film Kick. In 2006, he made his debut in Kannada film through Tananam Tananam with Ramya and Rakshita directed by Kavitha Lankesh.

Shaam was born on 4 April 1977 in Madurai, Tamil Nadu, into a Tamil-speaking Muslim family. He grew up in Bangalore, where he pursued his studies. After completing his B. Com, he did modelling through which he hoped to become an actor.

Shaam began his career as a model in Bangalore, modelling for various ads. Keen on pursuing an acting career, he was vainly searching for acting offers for four years. He then, following the recommendation of his model coordinator Biju Jayadevan, got to meet cinematographer Jeeva\'s, who was planning to make his directorial debut and was on the lookout for a new face for the film\'s lead role.

Shaam was given the role for the film 12B. Shaam recollects that during his first meeting with Jeeva, he handed over his portfolio and introduced himself in English, when Jeeva heard him out, and then said, “Repeat what you just said, in Tamil\" and Shaam did, and was subsequently signed on the next day after a meeting with producer Vikram Singh. The promos of the film were critically praised with Shaam signing on to appear on several projects before 12B even released. His second feature film, however, the S. J. Suryah-directed Khushi, in which he appeared in a cameo role, released first, since 12B got stuck in production and released in 2001 only.

The film, based on the theme of butterfly effect, fetched rave reviews and was seen as a dream entry for Shaam., his performance was praised as apt His subsequent releases including Vasanth\'s Hey! Nee Romba Azhaga Irukke (2002), Bala (2002), Anbe Anbe (2003) and Priyadarshan\'s Lesa Lesa (2003), garnered only average or poor box office returns. His final release of 2003 was Iyarkai by debutant S. P. Jananathan, which also failed at the box office due to a delayed release, but opened to high critical acclaim, even winning the National Film Award for Best Feature Film in Tamil.
