Prithvi, you are destined to play Najeeb, Ranjith Sankar opines

Aadujeevitham, the ambitious project of Blessy starring Prithviraj is based on a novel by Benyamin which tells the story of a Malayalee named Najeeb. Najeeb migrates to the Gulf region for greener pastures but ends up working in bizarre circumstances and ends up as a slave toiling hard. Director Ranjith Sankar who read the novel was moved beyond words and felt that Benyamin was born to tell the world this story and Prithvi was destined to play the role. He is also skeptical about if there are more Najeebs who toil in wild conditions.
