The Corona virus outbreak is taking a toll on the daily livelihood of the people, all over the world and things are getting intense and severe in many countries. The Indian Government has requested the entire nation to stay indoors and in isolation to prevent the disease from spreading among people. Similarly, all film shootings and post-production works have been stopped across the globe, owing to the safety of the large production crew. While the entire film industry is shut down, the unit of Aadujeevitham have decided to come forward and shoot their film as they are stranded in Jordan with no possibilities of traveling back to India.
The film’s lead actor, Prithviraj Sukumaran took to his official Facebook page to share a long note in which he explained about the situation. He also added that two of his team members are in quarantine, under medication, and clarified that the rest of the team have been given approval to shoot the film. Prithviraj posted, “These are tough times. Times we need to think and act collectively. The difference this time being..acting together means staying away from each other. As the world faces one of the greatest challenges of modern times, social distancing and self hygiene is the only way we can contain this pandemic. Thank you to all who’ve messaged and expressed concern over my safety and the safety of the Aadujeevitham unit. We are currently in Wadi Rum, Jordan and continuing shoot.
We have decided so because given the circumstances, that seems to be our best option. There are no international flights operating in and out of Jordan at the moment, and given the fact that all of us are already here, we can either stay put in our camp in the desert which is currently accommodating only our unit, or get out and shoot at our location which is barely a few minutes outside our camp. After consulting with the authorities and undergoing medical check ups for each member of the unit, we have been given a go ahead for the shoot as the location and the process of filming Aadujeevitham is in itself very isolated.
Yes, two of our actors have been put on precautionary quarantine in Amman along with all other passengers who flew in with them in the same flight. We hope to have them join us post the 2 week quarantine period. Do stick to all instructions from authorities and even more importantly, please do not panic.” Aadujeevitham is an upcoming Malayalam multistarrer biggie that stars Prithviraj, Amala Paul, Vineeth Sreenivasan, and Aparna Balamurali in the lead roles. This survival drama is directed by Blessy, along with the backing of a strong technical team in the form of A.R.Rahman (music director), K.U.Mohanan (cinematographer), and Sreekar Prasad (editor). The film is based on the novel of the same name, penned by Benyamin. Check out Prithviraj’s post below:
