Originally hailing from Thiruvalla but presently living in Kochi with his wife and children, Aju Varghese did his schooling from Rajagiri High School, Kalamassery and later Bhavan’s Adarsha Vidyalaya, Kakkanad. He went on to pursue his bachelor's degree in Electronics and Communication Engineering from KCG College of Technology, Chennai where he became friends with Vineeth Sreenivasan.
In the initial years, his roles were mostly restricted to either that of the affable and supportive best friend of the hero or as the comic relief to the movie. And for that reason, Aju Varghese was considered as Malayalis’ favourite sidekick for a long time. But as he grew as an actor, he has exhibited his acting prowess and has proved that he can take on any role and deliver it with aplomb.
Apart from feature films, Aju Varghese has also acted in a handful of short films too. In addition to his career as an actor, he has also stepped into the role of a producer and started a production company named Funtastic Films along with actor Dhyan Sreenivasan and producer Visakh Subramaniam.
He also has a relevant social media presence and his take on many social causes and current affairs as well as his posts with witty captions and photos are something enjoyed by fans with equal fervour.
