The Aadujeevitham team had left for Jordan a few days ago and is currently shooting some important scenes. Some pictures from the shooting spot are out online and we can see its hero Prithviraj in a completely different look.
The shooting of this film, directed by Blessy, began in March last year and after a schedule was completed, the team were on a break. We hear that the film is slated for release only in the year 2020, as its hero will have to gain weight for the first half of the film and then reduce it for the second. This is the reason for the film’s shooting being spread out within a span of 1 to 2 years.
Aadujeevitham is based on the novel of the same title, which has been penned by Benyamin.
The film’s technical crew includes Resul Pookutty for sound designing, KU Mohanan for cinematography and Raja Muhammed for editing. Aadujeevitham will bring back Oscar winning music director AR Rahman back into the Malayalam film industry. On his music composition for the film, the musician had reportedly told that he has completed setting the tunes for two songs, one of which has been rendered by singer Chinmayi. It is being bankrolled by KG Abraham under the banner KGA Films.
Prithviraj Sukumaran and Amala Paul play the lead pair while Vineeth Sreenivasan, Aparna Balamurali, Santhosh Keezhattoor and Lena play supporting roles. Reports are that after shooting some scenes in Jordan, the team will move over to Egypt for another schedule.
Soon after wrapping up the first schedule of Aadujeevitham, Prithviraj took his maiden directorial Lucifer to the floors and completed the shooting recently. The film is in the post production stage now with its release scheduled to happen in April this year.
It may be mentioned here that Aadujeevitham’s director Blessy is noted for his critically acclaimed movies such as Kazhcha, Thanmathra, and Pranayam. He is the recipient of several awards in his long career including the National Film Award for Best Feature Film in Malayalam for Thanmathra in 2005.
