After emerging as one of India’s most entertaining thrillers with an International Emmy nomination for Best Drama Series, Aarya is all set to foray into the digital space with Season 2. What makes it one of the most awaited OTT series is its surprising twist.
Sushmita Sen’s Arya 2
The key question that the trailer raised is – ‘Can Arya Sareen escape her past, or will her own family betray her again?’ Disney+ Hotstar, Endemol Shine India and Ram Madhvani Films are excited to present Aarya Season 2 starring Sushmita Sen. Created and produced for India by Ram Madhvani, the series is an official adaptation of the hit Dutch series Penoza by NL Film (Banijay Group). Arya Season 2 will be available only on Disney+ Hotstar starting December 10, 2021.
Ahead of the release of the second season of Aarya, Sushmita Sen shares her experience on shooting for the show amid the pandemic. Sushmita says, “We have now become lockdown specialists. We either release during the lockdown or shoot during it, this is our new thing. On our farewell when we finished shooting for Arya 2, We said how lucky we were to be working during the pandemic. There were a lot of people who had to sit at home, but it’s also a good culmination of teamwork. We have Disney+Hotstar, Ram Madhvani films, Sampoorna The crew and cast were together. Everyone was just trying to follow the rules and make it possible.”
Sushmita said, “My God! The definition of bubble is now etched in my mind forever. For any crew member to work in a PPE kit, working 10 hours a day from head to toe is serious It’s tough. And the constant tests, making sure we stay away from our families, being quarantined for 7-10 days before starting work, all these measures seemed difficult initially. But in the big picture We were filled with gratitude for being able to work in such times and be able to create something that you love. I mean Arya Season 2 is a huge leap from the first season.”
At the end, “It’s nice to see the same series moving forward with so much speed and difference, when you’ve already taken the story miles ahead and it was always a question mark. What will I do? There is already a lot and then he used to say, wait for this, we have a lot of content; we have a great subject. So, it was wonderful to work during the lockdown period, we shot in Jaipur. Had to do what is Arya’s hometown and of course the patchwork was done in Mumbai, so our schedule during the lockdown was largely covered.”
The second season of Aarya follows a mother’s journey in the dark world of crime and fighting enemies on her family and children. Will his family remain his strength or will his own trusted people turn against him? Sushmita Sen will be seen reprising the role of Arya Sareen with actors Sikander Kher, Vikas Kumar, Mayo Sarao, Ankur Bhatia, Akash Khurana, Dilnaz Irani.
Arya’s return as the lioness for ultimate revenge will be available only on Disney+ Hotstar starting December 10, 2021.
