INDIA. Hotstar Specials’ series Aarya revolves around Aarya – a woman caught in the underbelly of a drug ring, forced to take on the reins after the tragic loss of her husband; as she fights to protect her children against all odds. Since its launch in June, the show emerged as the biggest digital show during lockdown and has also gained a cult-like status with accolades coming in from audiences and critics alike. On popular demand and fan reactions, the series from Ram Madhvani is now available in 6 other regional languages viz. Marathi, Tamil, Telugu, Bengali, Kannada, and Malayalam. This comes as a treat for audiences who are comfortable watching shows in their own language and this dubbed version can now be watched on Disney+ Hotstar VIP.
Ram Madhvani said, “When we created Aarya, we always knew it was something special! The fact that audiences from all parts of India want to watch it in their language makes it a very humbling experience. In a diverse country like ours, we’ve been given this tremendous opportunity to present our story in 6 different languages. I think audiences will now be able to develop a deeper connect to the story and the world of Aarya, and we hope that it gets as much love and appreciation as the Hindi one”
