The trailer of Aarya, Ram Madhvani’s Hindi web-series, has generated a good response from netizens. In fact, it is actress Sushmita Sen who has been turning heads, as is evident from the numerous comments on social media.
Madhvani shares that Sen was their first choice for the main character. “Sushmita is the definition of grace and substance in front of the camera. When we developed this show and its lead character, we had to look for someone who can play the several layers of this character with nuance. Sushmita fits this character like a glove,” he said in an official statement.
The show sees Sen play Aarya Sareen, whose husband, Tej Sareen (Chandrachur Singh), runs an illegal medicines business. Problems arise when Tej is accused of being a drug dealer and is shot at. Now it is up to Aarya to bring her family, which includes her three kids, out of the mess, come what may.
Elaborating on the character of the protagonist, Madhvani said, “Aarya is someone who could go to any lengths to protect her family, especially her kids. And Sushmita seamlessly flowed into the character. No one could be a better choice than Sushmita to play Aarya."
Aarya also stars Namit Das, Sikandar Kher, Alexx O’Nell, Manish Chaudhary and Ankur Bhatia among others.
The series will stream on Disney + Hotstar from 19 June.
