Aditi Balan made a striking mark in Tamil cinema with her debut film, Aruvi, directed by Arun Prabhu Purushothaman. Aditi's impactful and emotionally moving performance as the titular character had got an outstanding reception from the critics and the general audience. The fans were quite eager to know about her next film, but the young talent remained silent and took time to decide on her next. After a long gap of close to two years since Aruvi's release, Aditi has finally announced her next and it will be a Malayalam film.

This will also mark Aditi's debut in Malayalam cinema and she will star opposite Nivin Pauly in this film. Titled as Padavettu, this film is directed by debutant Liju Krishna and produced by actor Sunny Wayne. Aditi took to her Instagram space to share the information along with a few pictures with the team. The film's shooting began today (December 3) with a special pooja at Kanhilery.

On the technical front, Padavettu has music by Govind Vasantha and cinematography by Deepak D Menon. Nivin's last release, Moothon was critically acclaimed and his performance was highly praised by the audience. With two strong powerhouse performers like Nivin and Aditi Balan in the front, we can expect an exciting product from this young talented team.
