Prithviraj’s wife wishes him 9th anniversary as actor remains stranded in Jordan

As Malayalam actor Prithviraj Sukumaran remains stranded in Jordan, along with the crew of his film Aadujeevitham, his wife Supriya took to social media to pen a note on their ninth wedding anniversary on Saturday.

Sharing a photo from their wedding day, she wrote: “Happy 9th Anniversary @therealprithvi! First time in 9 years that we are spending the day apart! But what do?! Waiting for you to come back soon and make this up to me!”

Prithviraj and the crew of the Blessy-directorial have been stranded in Jordan for over a month amid the global coronavirus lockdown. The shooting had to be halted, and the team had requested the government’s help to return to India. However, since nothing seems to have emerged on that front, the team has resumed shooting for the film, according to reports.

Earlier this month, Prithviraj had shared a lengthy post on Fcaebook about being stranded in the desert camp in Jordan. He revealed that due to present conditions, their shooting permission was revoked on March 27. “Following that, our team has been staying at the desert camp in Wadi Rum. We have now been told that an immediate permission for shoot to resume is unlikely due to the situation and hence, our next best option would be to return to India at the first available opportunity,” he wrote.

He added that since the initial plan was to shoot till second week of April, their food and other supplies will last for the immediate future. But what will happen after that timeline is a matter of concern, the actor added.

Prithviraj revealed that there is a doctor in the team, and that their health is being regularly monitored. “We have a doctor in our team who’s carrying out medical check ups for each member of the crew every 72 hours, and we are also subjected to periodic check ups by a govt appointed Jordanian doctor,” he wrote.

He further added: “We completely understand that given the circumstances around the world, our team of 58 might not be the biggest concern of authorities back home now, and rightfully so. But we also felt that it was our duty to let all concerned knows about the situation and keep them updated. There are thousands of Indians around the world waiting to get back home and we hope when the appropriate time and opportunity arrives, we are also able to come back to India. Till then, I hope all of you stay safe and let’s collectively hope and pray that life gets back to normal soon.”

Aadujeevitham is based on Benyamin’s book by the same name.
