Recently actor Prithviraj announced that he completed the shoot for his upcoming film Aadujeevitham in Jordan. The film, which went on floors in 2018, was hit hard by the pandemic. In particular, the team had to undergo a hard time while shooting in Jordan in 2020. For its second schedule, the team was shooting in Jordan's Wadi Rum in 2020, when local authorities chose to reverse their decision to permit shooting by the crew because of a rise in coronavirus infections. The decision put the unit in a spot as they were stranded and had to seek the help of Indian authorities to return home. The team has managed to complete the pending portions that had to be shot in Jordan.
Prithviraj confirmed that the Jordan schedule was finally over on his Twitter timeline. He tweeted, "'Aadujeevitham' foreign schedule done! Coming home! What a journey!" The film is an adaptation of a novel by Benyamin by the same name. The film, which has music by AR Rahman, has cinematography by KU Mohanan and editing by Sreekar Prasad. Prithviraj also has the upcoming Malayalam film Gold in his kitty.
