Exactly a month back, we had reported Academy Award-winning composer A. R. Rahman would be returning to Malayalam cinema after 25 years to score music for the highly ambitious project titled Aadujeevitham.

Announced to kick-off production in around three months time, Aadujeevitham, an adaptation of a novel of the same name written by Benyamin will be directed by National Award-winning director Blessy starring Malayalam superstar Prithviraj Sukumaran.

That said, actor Amala Paul took to her Instagram page to officially announce her involvement in Aadujeevitham as the female lead.


“I realized how painfully distant it was from my dreams. We shouldn't dream about the unfamiliar and about what only looks good from afar. 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. Happy and honored to be part of National Award Winning director Blessy's #Aadujeevitham as Sainu, a pain every Malayaly has felt through #Benyamin 's classic novel.An amazing screenplay of the classic which is set to be a visual spectacle in 3D, actor @therealprithvi who is giving the film 2 years of his life and going through hardships to set in the spirit of Najeeb, the legend @arrahman coming back to Malayalam after 25 years, another Oscar winner #RasoolPookutty as sound designer, also #KUMohanan who is one of the best Cinematographers of India, this gathering of #masters are going to make waves in world cinema. Need all your love, support and blessings. #grateful
