While there is no official announcement about the plot and other details of its new season, a source told indianexpress.com that the makers were always kicked about taking the story ahead with a new installment. “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, who plays the titular role in the series, garnered mostly positive response for her performance. She even won the Best Actress-Web Series award at Dadasaheb Phalke International Film Festival Awards 2021, recently.
The actor shared her acceptance speech video on her Instagram profile. “Of the many things I have learnt over the years as an actor and a person is that everything we do in our lifes needs a teamwork. This moment, this honour is also a result of teamwork,” the actor said in the video.
