Amala Paul to play the female lead in Prithviraj’s Aadujeevitham
Prithviraj’s much talked about ‘Aadujeevitham’ is gearing up to go on floors. This ambitious project is directed by award winning filmmaker Blessy. The movie is based on Benyamin’s award winning novel of the same name, which is about the life of an abused migrant worker in Saudi Arabia. It is being planned to be made simultaneously in Malayalam and Hindi.
The makers have roped in Amala Paul to play the female lead. Her character Sainu is a very significant one with immense scope for performance. A delighted Amala herself revealed this info through her Facebook page. She shared a photo taken with Blessy and along with that wrote a long note which reads,
“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.
