Disney+ Hotstar launched the trailer of their new Hotstar Specials, Aar Ya Paar, a gripping tale of an underdog trying to save his tribe and survive in the modern world. The action drama series is created by Sidharth Sengupta, produced by Jyoti Sagar and Sidharth’s Edgestorm Ventures LLP. and directed by Glen Baretto, Ankush Mohla and Neel Guha.

As the platform’s year-end gift, the series streams from December 30 exclusively on Disney+ Hotstar.

Aditya Rawal, Patralekhaa, Sumeet Vyas, Ashish Vidyarthi, Dibyendu Bhattacharya, Aasif Sheikh, Shilpa Shukla, Varun Bhagat and Nakul Sehdev lead the cast. The series follows the journey of Sarju, played by Aditya Rawal, the protagonist who is a tribal with a formidable talent in archery. He is fighting for the survival of his tribe against the modern world and its corrupt political and financial machinery that catapults him into the world of big crime, wherein he emerges as a deadly mercenary assassin.

Showrunner and producer Sidharth Sengupta said, “When two different worlds collide, they often lead to conflict and chaos. Aar Ya Paar is a story that revolves around a unique collision brought about by human spirit and survival in a world of greed and power. The series has multiple character arcs, differentiated storytelling and brilliant actors to narrate the story. I am grateful for the association with Disney+ Hotstar and taking the world of Aar Ya Paar to the global audience.”

Aditya Rawal added, “As a character, Sarju wants to protect his land and his people, and will go to any length to accomplish his goal. Different shades of the character emerge as he deals with one challenge after another. I am grateful to Sidharth Sengupta and Disney+ Hotstar for giving me the opportunity to play Sarju.”

Aar Ya Paar, interestingly, was the title of a 1996 crime film that was directed by Ketan Mehta for producers Venus Records and Tapes. This is probably one of the first few TV serials that shares a title with a film—which is a small list indeed. A few others like Mithya and Mukhbir come to mind.
