According to the latest rumours, the highly anticipated Aadujeevitham OTT version will have a longer runtime. The makers are reportedly planning to release the uncut version of the film on Disney+ Hotstar shortly after it concludes its theatrical run. Given The Goat Life's successful theatrical run, the film may follow in the footsteps of Premalu and Manjummel Boys and have a longer theatrical run.
