Kalaiyarasan completed his higher education at SRM University as a graduate in computer applications.

His first film- ‘ Arjunan Kadhali’ which ended in 2008 was not released due to unknown reasons. This didn't stop him from pursuing his dream of acting. With his perseverance, he managed to work with the renowned Tamil directors such as Mysskin and Ranjith. His role in Mysskin’s 2012 film ‘Mugamoodi’ received a lot of praise and it gained him a considerable amount of respect and reputation in the industry.

Incidentally, Kalaiyarasan considers Myshkin to be his mentor and role model. However, his biggest break came with the 2014 film- ‘Madras’ by Ranjith. He was selected from a strict three-stage screening process to be cast as a co-star along with the popular Kollywood actor Karthi. Kalaiyarasan utilized this opportunity to its maximum and proved his worth.

This performance remains a milestone in his career as it received a lot of critical appreciations with many critics praising him as a ‘show stealer’. Thanks to his role in ‘Madras’, he has over a dozen more contracts drawn, most of the films feature him in the lead role. It is apparent that Kalaiyarasan is a very versatile actor as the films which he has accepted belong to contrasting genres such as the horror film- ‘Darling2', romantic film ‘Raja Mandhiri’ and also the film ‘ Urumeen’ which features him as the main villain.

Kalaiyarasan is indeed, a promise to the Indian film industry. Had he not quit his job and pursued his dream of acting, he wouldn’t have gained the success he enjoys presently. He sets an example to everyone who wish to live their dreams.
