Over the past year, the dynamics of the Indian entertainment industry has changed a lot. Streaming giants like Netflix, Amazon Prime Video and Disney+ Hotstar have given us amazing gems to binge-watch. The pandemic lockdowns gave them an opportunity to muscle in and attract a large stream of cinema-goers. So they rewrote the rules for Bollywood and roped in some of the finest actors to them kickass comebacks that they all deserved. And, when we talk about comebacks, we have to mention Sushmita Sen and her outstanding performance in Aarya.
Sush began her second innings in the industry as Aarya. The crime drama released in 2020 on Disney+ Hotstar and was a major success instantly. The Main Hoon Na actress played a gangster in the series and stunned us all over again. Obviously, we have been waiting patiently for Aarya 2.0, and guys *drumrolls* it's here! Sushmita recently confirmed on her Instagram handle that the second season of her web series is coming soon.
While the dates are yet to be announced, a little birdie close to the makers dropped some hints on what could be expected from the second instalment. They said in a recent interview, "The idea was to continue Aarya’s story and how she deals with newer challenges while fighting her own family. The team had been prepping up for the new season for a long time, and it’s set to go on floors soon. The show would mostly launch sometime later this year.”
Sushmita was recently awarded a Film Critics Guild Award for her performance in Aarya. The actress played the role of a woman who had to take control of her unethical family business after the death of her husband. While the first season did not end on any cliffhangers, we cannot wait to find out the new set of challenges her character will face in the upcoming season.
Waiting eagerly for Aarya Season 2!
