As per Sushmita’s post, it seems like she is avoiding Durga Puja celebrations on a grand scale this year due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
On the work front, Sushmita recently made headlines after her web series Aarya was nominated at the 49th International Emmy Awards in the ‘Drama Series’ category. Reacting to the news, Sushmita had said, “It is surreal to know that ‘Aarya’ has been recognised globally amongst the Best Drama series in the world and to be nominated at a platform as prestigious as the International Emmy Awards is phenomenal.”
She added, “I am overwhelmed with the love and faith viewers across the world have put into our labour of love and want to thank each one from the bottom of my heart for the encouragement.”
Helmed by director Ram Madhvani, the show marked the debut of the former beauty queen in the digital space. The series also stars Namit Das, Sikander Kher, Jayant Kriplani, Sohaila Kapoor, Sugandha Garg, Maya Sareen, Vishwajeet Pradhan and Manish Chaudhary.
