The team was filming the movie's second schedule in Jordan's Wadi Rum when the Coronavirus attacked the world and all means of transportation including international flights came to a standstill. While the Jordan government had granted permission to the team shoot there till April 10, the filming was suspended after the same government insisted the team to pack-up due to the COVID-19 threat.

Due to the food shortage and the growing threat of the team getting infected, director Blessy sought the help of authorities in Kerala to return to India. Actor Prithviraj had also taken to his social media pages to update his fans that he and the team were safe and that they were hoping to return home as soon as possible.

After the deadly virus came under control, the Jordan government granted permission to resume the shoot. The team used the best of the opportunity to capture all the required shots from the location and wrapped up earlier this week.

Directed by Blessy, ‘Aadujeevitham’ is one of the ambitious upcoming projects of Prithviraj. 'Aadujeevitham' 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. Prithviraj plays Najeeb Mohammed, who is stranded in the middle of deserts, in this survival thriller. Amala Paul plays the female lead in the flick.
