While not much else is known about the plotline of Aarya 2, a source earlier told an Indian publication that the makers were always psyched up 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 is set to go on floors soon. The show would mostly launch sometime later this year,” the source told.

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 lives needs a teamwork. This moment, this honour is also a result of teamwork,” the actor said in the video.
