Prithviraj takes a 3-month long break to reduce weight for Aadujeevitham!
Director Blessy and Prithviraj have been working on their ambitious film ‘Aadujeevitham’ for over two years now. The film is based on Benyamin’s award winning novel of the same name. is being shot over various schedules as Prithviraj needs to be appearing in multiple looks. The actor has now taken a three month long from work to trim down and achieve the malnourished look that the lead character in ‘Aadujeevitham’ demands.
Last day, after the completion of his new film ‘Ayyappanum Koshiyum’, the actor took to his social media handle to pen down a note in which revealed about taking his first such break in his 20-year-long acting career. His post reads,
That’s a wrap for me on #AyyappanumKoshiyum today. And as I travel back from the location, I realise lying ahead of me is something I’ve not known for almost the last 20 years. For the next 3 months, I’m taking a break from cinema. A break!!! Day after day of waking up and not having to get into the mindset and leave for the day’s shoot. Yes, the break in itself is part of an exercise for one of the most ambitious projects of my life, #Aadujeevitham. But 3 straight months of not being involved with the actual process of filming, seems like from a distant, faded memory. I don’t know if I’m happy or a little intimidated by the prospect. But I know two women who’ll be elated about it. And they are waiting for me to get back home as I write this. It’ll be way beyond bedtime for one of them by the time I reach..but I’m hoping Mamma will let her stay up as it’s Sunday tomorrow. Ahead in the immediate future, is the release of our 2nd home production #DrivingLicense. It’s easily one of of the most interesting mainstream scripts that I’ve been part of and it’s a special film for me and our company. So see you all at the theatres on this 20th! #DaadaComingHome
‘Aadujeevitham’ is about the life of an abused migrant worker, Najeeb Mohammed, who is stranded in the middle of deserts in Saudi Arabi. The lone man undergoes different experiences from seclusion, emotional conflicts and survival struggles. It is a very challenging character and Prithviraj is expected to deliver his best. AR Rahman is making his comeback after nearly three decades with this film.
