From Aditi To Aruvi, Actress Aditi Balan’s Journey Has Been Inspiring!

From Aditi to Aruvi, her journey has been inspiring!

Advocate-turned-actor Aditi Balan didn’t think she’d bag the role of the heroine after her auditions for Aruvi. In hindsight however, she couldn’t have asked for a better launch than with this socio-political drama by Arun Prabhu Purushothaman. JFW is Aditi’s first ever photo shoot and we are happy to present this debutante as a fashionable new girl on the block.

Growing up, this debutante used to watch a lot of films as any young girl in her teens. Little did she think that she would one day shoulder a film. An ardent fan of the Superstar, this young actress had her dream fulfilled when she got an opportunity to meet the man in person. Not a progeny of the film fraternity, Aditi has clearly made a grand entrance and she is here to stay.

Right from wanting to become a doctor, dancer to an English teacher in Japan, my career goals kept changing!”

Born and raised in Chennai, this young lady professes that she was a studious girl all through her school days. “We are a very close knit family. I have an elder brother; my mom is a home maker and my father is employed. I was interested in acting but never thought of pursuing it. I took up Law for my graduation as I had keen interest in this subject since an eighth grader. However, like all young students,my interests kept oscillating: right from wanting to become a doctor, dancer to an English teacher in Japan my career goals were moving targets!

“I randomly went for it and gave in my audition; I was so certain that I performed badly.”

From a dancer to a football player and a law graduate, we wondered how ‘Aruvi’ happened. “By chance,” comes her reply. Brimming with curiosity, we probe further. “I normally like doing new things all the time. So there was this audition call and I wanted to know how an audition works in cinema. I randomly went for it and gave in my audition; I was so certain that I performed badly. However, later I was called for a test shoot that ran for an entire day. There was no seriousness attached to this effort; I did not particularly have any encouragement from family and friends either. I also lacked any kind of film influence. But once I clinched the role, I got the support and encouragement from all!
