Aarya is an upcoming crime drama series that is created by filmmaker Ram Madhvani, best known for directing Neerja. It stars Sushmita Sen, Chandrachur Singh, Sikandar Kher, Ankur Bhatia and Namit Das among others. Both Sushmita and Chandrachur are returning to the screen after a long hiatus.

Madhvani has co-directed the series with Sandeep Modi and Vinod Rawat.

Sushmita earlier said in a virtual media interaction that she had to unlearn everything to play the lead role of Aarya in the series due to the authenticity of the writing, the setting, the costumes, make-up and so on. She said, “I come from a larger-than-life screen. We are used to everything being dramatic. Our dialogues are delivered a certain way. Our make-up is done in a certain way. But with Ram Madhvani and with Aarya, I had to unlearn everything.”

She added, “I had to learn how to go from a larger than life screen to an intimate screen since OTT is an intimate platform. It was a 360-degree approach to play Aarya. His (Ram Madhvani) technique of shooting Aarya was that a full day of shooting goes on. There are no cuts, no over-shoulder, no close-ups. I haven’t looked at the monitor even once to see how I was looking,” the former Miss Universe shared.”

Ram Madhvani: Fascinating to see Sushmita come back in such a strong way

Aarya's creator Ram Madhvani says in this promo of the series that he and other members of the creative team have invested in Sushmita both as an actress and as a person. He added that he and others grew up watching her and they found her comeback 'fascinating'. Sushmita's co-stars also praised her for making the switch to web series medium like she had done that all her life. 

Chandrachur Singh, known for his work in films like Maachis, Josh and Daag: The Fire, discussed with about the way the creator of the show Madhvani works. He said the actors were referred to by the names of their characters. "On the sets of Aarya, we were addressed as our characters, both, on and off camera. That was Ram’s way of keeping us in character. When we walked on the set, we were addressed like ‘Tej walks on the set’ or ‘Aarya walks on the set’. Everyone on the set was so passionate that we just had to feed off each other’s energy. Also, all the tears and everything that you see in the series is real. There is no glycerine used. It is like one long scene happening, so you get involved in it entirely,” the actor said.
