I’ve always been a huge Lalettan fan, says ‘Aruvi’ fame Aditi Balan
Aditi Balan who shot to fame with her debut film ‘Aruvi’ is currently in Kerala shooting for her maiden Malayalam film ‘Padavettu’. She is paired opposite Nivin Pauly in the film which is being directed by debutant Liju Krishna. Interestingly, not many know that Aditi is a half Malayali.
In a recent interview to TOI, she revealed that her mom is a Mavelikkara native and her dad is from Chennai. During her childhood days, Aditi’s family was based in Kerala and she has some fond memories of watching Malayalam films from theatres. Aditi divulged that she is a huge fan of Mohnalal and also has a soft corner for Jayaram, as he resembles her dad.
After garnering widespread acclaim for her performance in ‘Aruvi’, Aditi took everyone by surprising by not signing any other film for three films. She finally took up ‘Padavettu’ after being impressed by the script, which she calls simple but impactful. Actor Sunny Wayne is making his feature film production debut by funding this film.
Besides ‘Padavettu’, Aditi is doing another Malayalam film in which she will be seen alongside Kunchacko Boban. It will be directed by Shaheed Khader, a former associate of late Rajesh Pillai.
