After getting done with the entire shoot for his political thriller Lucifer which has Mohanlal in the lead, Prithviraj is now taking a breather before he joins the sets of his much-awaited landmark project Aadujeevitham. The team will be flying to Jordan by the end of this month to can some important portions which would come in at crucial parts. Director Blessy also has plans to proceed to Egypt to can a few other scenes for the film.
Aadujeevitham is a meticulously planned project which will be shot in parts over the course of 2019, due to the grinding schedules and the physical makeovers that Prithviraj has to go through. The team began their shoot in 2018 by filming some portions between Prithviraj and actress Amala Paul. The actor will be putting on some pounds for the first half of the film, and will subsequently lose it for the second half.

The film, based on a novel of the same name, is about a migrant worker who goes to the Middle East in search of a job, only to get forced into slavery and made to herd goats in the deserts. Written by Benyamin, the book was an all-time bestseller. KG Abraham, the producer of Aadujeevitham, left no stone unturned in bringing in the best names for the project. The film’s technical crew has KU Mohanan for cinematography, Resul Pookutty for sound design and also marks the return of Oscar-winning composer AR Rahman to the Malayalam industry after a really long gap.
