Aruvi fame Aditi Balan in Santhosh Sivan’s Jack and Jill?
Santosh Sivan’s upcoming Malayalam film ‘Jack n Jill’ has Kalidas Jayaram and Manju Warrier in the lead. Shoot for the movie commenced last October and Manju has already wrapped up her portions. If reports are to be believed, the movie also has Aditi Balan of ‘Aruvi’ fame playing a major role. The makers have so far been tight-lipped about this news and hence an official confirmation in this regard is still awaited.

The movie directed by Arun Prabhu won Aditi numerous awards at the regional and international level. Ever since its release, cinephiles have been eagerly waiting to hear about her next film. If news about Santosh Sivan’s film turns out to be true, it will definitely be a great follow-up to ‘Aruvi’.
‘Jack n Jill’ is said to be a thriller, a genre that Santosh Sivan, the filmmaker, hasn’t done before. Reportedly, the makers are planning it as a bilingual in Malayalam and Tamil version.
