Aditi Balan had a dream debut in Kollywood with director Arun Prabu Puruhsothaman's critically acclaimed film Aruvi. The film, which talks about the life of an AIDS patient and their acceptance in society, received commercial success as well. However, after Aruvi's success, Aditi Balan did not sign any big film. She starred in a short film of an anthology titled Kutti Story. Now, Aditi is all set to make her Mollywood debut with Cold Case, directed by cinematographer-turned-director Tarun Balak. She will be sharing the screen space with Prithviraj Sukumaran in the supernatural thriller.
In a statement, she opened up about what was tough for her while acting in the cold case. She said, "I was asked during shooting if I have ever been scared or something. I am not – maybe darkness but I haven’t experienced anything supernatural. The closest experience would be when I was in the eighth standard. We had gone for an outstation trip and were staying in a hotel when eight of us - kids - were playing in the middle of the night. We suddenly heard some sound and we went towards it and were startled seeing a creepy-looking blue-haired person peeping from the other side of the door. It’s not supernatural but at that moment I flipped, freaked, and ran back to the room. That’s the only experience of me getting scared. Also, I don’t believe in the supernatural. So, while shooting scenes where I had to look frightened, I would constantly ask the team if I was looked scared enough for real.”
