Mumbai, June 26 (PTI): Actor Sushmita Sen has revealed that she has almost completed the shooting for the second season of her acclaimed web series “Aarya”.
The 45-year-old actor had ventured into the digital space with the crime thriller show, which is a remake of Dutch series “Penoza”
The first season, which debuted on Disney+ Hotstar in June 2020, was well-received for its taut narrative and effective performances.
Sharing details about the sophomore season during an Instagram Live session on Friday, Sen said she hopes that the new chapter will also be received well by the audiences.
“The last schedule of ‘Aarya’ is left and it is not a long one. It should be done very soon. What is important is the love and appreciation you have given ‘Aarya’.
