Sarja is known for starring in Kannada films AddhuriBahaddur and Bharjari. He will be next seen in an action thriller titled Pogaru, also -starring Rashmika Mandanna. He is the nephew of veteran Kannada star Arjun Sarja.

Sarja's brother Chiranjeevi Sarja passed away last month in a private hospital in Bengaluru following a massive cardiac arrest.

Sarja is the second notable personality from the Kannada film industry to have tested positive. Earlier, actor-turned-politician Sumalatha Ambareesh had said she contracted the virus and is currently placed under home quarantine, as per an Indian Express report.
