Sajid started acting as a child appearing as the younger version of Sunil Dutt's character in his father Mehboob's 1957 film Mother India. He played the title role in his father's next and last film Son of India in 1962. According to Rauf Ahmed, though the film was not a success at the box-office, Sajid's performance was praised by the critics. He went on to achieve fame in the United States with a co-starring role alongside Jay North in the 1966 film Maya. The film's success led to a television series of the same name airing on NBC from September 1967 to February 1968 where he had pivotal role becoming a "teen idol". He also had a short-lived singing career in 1969 with a self-titled album. He went on to guest star in the television series The Big Valley and It's Happening. After appearing in a handful of successful English films - The Prince and I, My Funny Girl, The Singing Filipina, Mahatma and the Mad Boy, he tried to get into Hindi films but none of his Hindi films from 1972 to 1983 ever worked. His career's peak period was in 1966–1974 and he was more successful in English films. He made an appearance in the Merchant-Ivory film Heat and Dust in 1983 which was successful.
