"Aadujeevitham" is a film version of Benyamin's famous 2008 Malayalam novel "Aadujeevitham," which was inspired by actual events. In the film, Prithviraj Sukumaran plays Najeeb, a Malayali immigrant worker forced into servitude as a goatherd on a remote farm in Saudi Arabia.

The film went through a lengthy production period beginning in 2009, with Blessy showing interest in adapting Aadujeevitham after finding the novel in 2008. Prithviraj was cast the same year, and in 2009, Blessy began negotiating with Benyamin and working on the script. However, budgetary restrictions slowed major development. Blessy worked for years to find a producer, and in 2015, she was successful, propelling the project ahead. Jimmy Jean-Louis, Steven Adams, and Blessy himself served as producers. A. R. Rahman created the film's original soundtrack and songs.

Filming took place in phases from March 2018 to July 2022, encompassing six schedules in the deserts of Wadi Rum, Jordan, and the Sahara, Algeria, with additional sequences shot in Kerala, India. From March to May 2020, the group was forced to spend 70 days in the Jordanian desert because to COVID-19 pandemic limitations. They were eventually evacuated to India by the Indian government's Vande Bharat Mission evacuation programme. Filming concluded on July 14, 2022.

Suriya was first picked and contacted to play Najeeb, and Blessy discussed the part with him. However, due to his hectic schedule and prior obligations, he declined. Prithviraj subsequently decided to play the character while filming Pokkiri Raja (2010) in 2008.
