Sharing an image with Prithviraj, they further added, "Among the passengers was the stranded 58-member crew of the upcoming Malyaalam Film “??? ?????? - Goat Days” starring Indian film superstar Prithviraj Sukumaran, and directed by National Award Winning director Blessy. The film crew was stranded in Jordan, while shooting for the 2nd phase of above film, due to ongoing Coronavirus Pandemic and resulting lockdown in Jordan since March 16, 2020."
