Aadujeevitham Trailer Leaked: One of the most anticipated Malayalam films of the year is Aadujeevitham (Goat Days) starring Prithviraj Sukumaran. US entertainment website Deadline has obtained an excerpt from the film, which was leaked to overseas agencies for commercial purposes. As soon as this tape was released as a trailer for the film, Blessy, the director of the film, posted a video on social media. The incident did not please him.
Due to the roughly three-minute length of the clip, Blessy explained in the video that it is not a trailer. He said he came to Deadline after being referred to foreign agents for business and film festivals.
Blessey was nervous and said, “The post-production of the film is going on right now. It is mentally depressing to go through this crisis at this stage. I am posting this video so that people will know the truth about it.”

Prithviraj also released a statement explaining what happened once the video started going viral on social media.
Yes, the “release” was not intentional. No, it wasn’t meant to be “leaked” on the internet.

Aadujeevitham stars Jimmy Jean-Louis and Prithviraj Sukumaran, with the Malayalam actor portraying an Indian immigrant. The narrative is based on the true events of an abused Malayali migrant worker who was forced to herd goats in the Saudi Arabian desert in order to survive. They refer to modern slavery. Benyamin Aadujeevitham, the original book that inspired the film, has been outlawed in the UAE and Saudi Arabia.
