After the roaring success of Aarya (2020), Sushmita Sen is back to headline Aarya 2, one of the most-awaited streaming shows of 2021. While the first season revolved around her character finding the truth behind his husband’s murder in broad daylight, the second season focuses on her journey from being powerless to fearless.
Recently, the makers dropped the much-anticipated trailer for Aarya 2, which managed to grab audiences’ attention as everyone looks forward to seeing what all Aarya goes through after becoming the new don in the town. One thing that the trailer makes specifically clear is that Sushmita Sen will be firing on all cylinders as Aarya Sareen.
Ahead of the release of Aarya 2, Sushmita Sen shared her experience of shooting for the show in the midst of a pandemic. “We have become lockdown specialists now! We either release during a lockdown or shoot during it, that’s our new thing! When we completed the shoot for Aarya 2, on our farewell, we said how blessed we were to be working during the pandemic. There were so many people who had to sit at home, but this is also a nice culmination of teamwork. We had Disney+Hotstar, Ram Madhvani Films, the entire crew and the cast together. Everyone just pulled in following the rules and making it possible,” she said.
The former Miss Universe added that Aarya 2 is a big leap from its predecessor. “My God! The very definition of a bubble is now etched in my mind forever. For any crew member to work in a PPE kit, covered from head to toe for 10 hrs a day is seriously tough! And the constant tests, making sure we lived away from our family, the quarantine for 7-10 days before starting to work, all these measures initially seemed difficult. But in the bigger picture, we were full of gratitude to be working at such a time and being able to create something that you love. I mean, Aarya season 2 is a big leap from the first season,” she concluded.
Aarya 2 premieres on December 10 on Disney+ Hotstar.
