Amidst Coronavirus scare, Aadujeevitham shoot continues!

A day ago, we had reported that Prithviraj's co-actor in the upcoming movie 'Aadujeevitham' was quarantine suspecting COVID-19. The Omani actor identified as Dr.Talib Al Balushi and another actor from the team is home-quarantined in a hotel near the Dead Sea, as flight services have come to a temporary halt from the Jordan Airport.

Following this, the Malayali audience were anxious about Prithviraj and the entire 'Aadujeevitham' team. There were also reports doing the round that the shoot of the movie was affected. On Thursday, Prithviraj, the lead actor himself, took to his social media page to clarify that the shoot is continuing at Wadi Rum, a protected place at Jordan.


Prithviraj's Facebook post

"Stay safe.
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."
