When such dreams become reality, they are often impossible to come to terms with. Aadujeevitham, this heart warming novel arrested my heart so deeply, moved and inspired by Najeeb’s surrender to the will of Allah (God) and the unshaken faith he put in lord even at the extreme subjugation of body and mind that will lead you to the existence of the third entity - the spirit. ‘Spirit’, the undying and ever existing component of us all. Her tongue would not utter even a single word of despair. Women should be like that. she was my secret pride.Through Najeeb’s eyes, I imagined Sainu like an angel and it will be my utmost joy to enact real Sainu on reel for viewers."
