Saimum Shajid was born in Char Jor Pukuria village of Sujanagar upazila of Pabna district. Father Shahjahan Ali is a pharmacist by profession, mother Rupali Khatun is a housewife. Shajid passed SSC in 2016 from Chinakhara High School in Pabna. Then he was admitted in the computer department of Faridpur Polytechnic Institute. He is currently studying in the sixth grade.
From an early age, Shajid was more interested in sports than studies. Especially playing cricket was his passion. The dream was to become a great cricketer. But Shajid’s mother did not like sports. Even then, when Shajid played cricket in secret and won the Champions Trophy and gave it to his mother, his mother would have been very happy.
Shajid was also very interested in acting. Shajid’s two elder brothers used to take Shajid to different occasions. Shajid wanted to become an actor after watching the performance there. Shajid’s father and two elder brothers have always inspired Shajid.
Shajid said, “Once my two elder brothers used to go to see different programs with me, so I was very happy to see the performances there. I wanted to act like that and I used to watch dramas on TV at home and present the characters of those dramas in front of my father and mother. And my two older brothers used to take me to different school outfit programs and I got a lot of prizes from there. This is how my desire to act comes to the fore.
Shajid further said, especially I used to watch more plays of my favorite actor Chanchal Chowdhury’s character and I used to try to play his character more. A funny story is that when my mother was angry with me for some reason, I used to break my anger by laughing at my mother by acting. Even when everyone in the family was together, I would talk about one or the other acting character.
