Writer-director Ram Madhvani’s upcoming web-series Aarya has Sushmita Sen essaying the powerful role of the lead character. The trailer of the same, which was released last week, showed glimpses of the actress, whose character finds itself thrust into an untenable situation.
But there is a surprise package in Aarya, which appears in the form of Bob Wilson, a character played by actor and singer Alex O’Nell. Interestingly, his character is that of a musician in the show.
Speaking on what to expect from him in the show, O'Nell said in an official statement, “The role of Bob Wilson is the surprise element of the series, and by the last episode, you’ll see this captivating character transform completely, becoming among the most integral parts of this gripping story.”
Playing Bob Wilson means a lot to O’Nell. “This role is a dream come true and I will be forever grateful to Ram Madhvani, Abhimanyu Ray Casting, and my management at Metta Talent for making it happen,” he said.
Aarya revolves around Sen, who plays the wife of a man (Chandrachur Singh), who has an illegal medicine business. He gets framed for selling drugs and later gets shot. This puts various responsibilities and challenges on Sen’s shoulders. She not only has to protect her children from her husband’s associates but also has to get involved in the business to keep herself safe
The show clearly seems to be a crime thriller but O’Nell spills the beans by revealing more. “While Aarya is indeed a crime drama, it’s also a musical journey, a complex web of crime and family, and above all, a love story. There is so much more to the series than can be fit into a single trailer and I think those who are expecting a straightforward narrative, will be pleasantly surprised to experience nothing less than an intricately constructed masterpiece,” he said.
O’Nell recently brought out his first single ‘Still On My Mind’ featuring Shama Sikander. He will soon be coming up with another single called ‘Twenty Days,’ which will also feature Sikander.
Aarya will start streaming on Disney + Hotstar from 19 June onwards.
