Pranav Mohanlal starrer Aadhi is continuing its fabulous run at the Box Office worldwide. The film, which marked the acting debut of Malayalam superstar Mohanlal's son as the male lead has been produced by Antony Perumbavoor under his home banner Aashirvad Cinemas. Directed by Drishyam fame Jeethu Joseph, Aadhi also stars an ensemble star cast including Aditi Ravi, Anusree, Jagapati Babu, Lena, Siddique, Sharaf U Dheen, Siju Wilson, Meghanathan and Sijoy Varghese.

Aadhi is nearing one month of its theatrical run at the Box Office. The film had already minted a whopping Rs. 35 crore at the Box office, which is a remarkable feat considering for a debut actor's film. Also, upon its release, Aadhi had stiff competition from Bollywood releases Shahid Kapoor, Deepika Padukone, Ranveer Singh's Padmaavat and Akshay Kumar, Sonam Kapoor and Radhika Apte starrer Pad Man. But the Pranav Mohanlal film managed to show steady collections after registering an excellent opening week. At the Cochin multiplexes, Aadhi crossed the coveted Rs. 1 crore mark and still has nearly 10 shows on a day.

Aadhi has been praised for its gripping story and the performances of Aadhi, especially his parkour stunt sequences, which is a first time visual treat for Malayalam film audience.
