Aarya Actors’ Performances
The lead actor Sushmita Sen and Chandrachur Singh seen onscreen after very long time are treat to the eyes. Sushmita Sen playing (Aarya Sareen) as wife of Chandrachur acts poised and confidentaly. She delivers her dialogues compositely, and even the simple sentences uttered by her in the series appear no less than powerful dialogues.
Chandrachur Singh has acted so fresh and natural that make us hook to the story effortlessly. When he is on screen, you cannot go off it. His performance is relatable, firm and raw. You would love to watch him more but it’s Sushmita’s series, so he gets quite less space except episode one.
Sikander Kher has also been amazing. He packs a punch and delivers a robust discharge of performance. His screen presence ensures the thrill in the series. He has his dialogues which make him stand apart.
Other actors as Manish Choudhary, Ankur Bhatia, Alexx ONell etc. all have been good at their parts. Manish acts well as the main villain Shekawat. Allexx, an American actor is another treat to the eyes. Ankur Bhatia has been slightly weak in comparison to others. But, he does his job.

The screenplay is captivating and bind you through the thick and thin of the series. The unfolding of events is symmetric and gripping.
