Aarya, Sushmita Sen’s comeback and digital debut (as the titular role), returns with season 2 on Disney+ Hotstar.
The Emmy-nominated season 1 concludes with Aarya planning to leave the country with her children following her husband’s assassination, at the behest of her father. After getting embroiled in some illegal businesses, Aarya is now on the don of the mob.
The trailer suggests that Aarya had, in fact, is back in the country and is sharpening her claws again. Shekhawat’s (Manish Chaudhary) father is out for revenge against her and so is her own brother.
Even the Russian mob is pressing against her for their money. It also looks like Aarya will have to resort to violence once again to save her family. Vikas Kumar returns as ACP Khan. Other recurring cast members also include Sikandar Kher and Ankur Bhatia.
Sen describes in a statement: “After being nominated for the previous season for the International Emmy awards, we are supercharged for the second season. Season 2 is not just about Aarya, a strong woman but also a warrior.
The new chapter is a fascinating revelation of the character and has proved to be a huge learning for me as an actor. I challenged myself by donning Aarya in a new avatar and I hope that the audiences will appreciate her fierce, unapologetic self in the second season.”
Directed by Ram Madhvani, Aarya was listed for the International Emmy Awards 2021 in the Best Drama Series category. It is based on the Dutch drama series Penoza.
Aarya – Season 2 streams on Disney+ Hotstar from December 10.
