Directed by Ram Madhvani, who helmed Neerja, the Disney+Hostar special show Aarya is based on Dutch drama series Penoza. Sushmita Sen plays the titular role and the series tracks her transformation from a family-oriented woman to someone who picks up the gun to protect her family and tie the loose ends of her husband's murky business. In an interview with news agency PTI, Sushmita said: "By God's grace, I got the most incredible beautiful content, a fantastic platform, Hotstar. For me, this culmination of everything coming together has been because I gave it time, I gave my everything to wait. I said I will sit at home but when I do something it has to be worth it. And I can proudly say it now."
In NDTV's review, Sushmita Sen's portrayal of the titular character was described as: "...it is left to Sushmita Sen to hold the series together with her natural ability to fill every frame with her commanding presence."
Aarya premiered on Disney+Hotstar on June 19.
