Known for her comedic talent and vibrant screen presence, Arya has carved a niche for herself, especially through her performance in the comedy show Badai Bungalow. Her journey through the entertainment industry and her participation in Bigg Boss Malayalam Season 2 has garnered her a substantial fan base. Let’s take a closer look at her life, career, and achievements.

Early Life and Background

Born and raised in Trivandrum, Kerala, Arya hails from a modest background. She completed her schooling at the prestigious Holy Angel’s Convent in Trivandrum. From a young age, Arya displayed a keen interest in performing arts, particularly dance. She trained in various dance forms, including Western, cinematic, and semi-classical styles, which later complemented her acting and modeling career.

Career Beginnings

Arya’s foray into the entertainment industry began during her higher secondary studies when she landed a role in the television series Officer on Amrita TV. This early exposure to acting, though brief, planted the seeds for her future in the entertainment industry. After her initial stint in television, Arya took a break to focus on her personal life, including marriage.

Encouraged by her sister-in-law, Kalpana Susheelan, who was a model, Arya ventured into modeling. She quickly made a mark by working on commercials for leading brands such as Chennai Silks and Chemmanur Jewellers. Her entry into the Tamil television industry came with the soap opera Maharani (2009-2011), a remake of the Malayalam serial Ente Manasaputhri.

Rise to Fame

After a maternity break of two years, Arya returned to television with a string of roles in popular Malayalam serials such as Mohakkadal, Achante Makkal, and Ardram. Her career took a significant turn when she participated in the reality television series Stars on Asianet, where her performance in a spoof of the film Njan Gandharvan was highly appreciated. This led to her being cast in Badai Bungalow (2013-2018), a comedy show that became a major turning point in her career.

In Badai Bungalow, Arya portrayed a character named Arya, Ramesh Pisharody’s wife, and her comedic timing and charisma made her a household name. Alongside this, she played the role of Pooja, a bold and outspoken daughter-in-law in the serial Sthreedhanam on Asianet, further solidifying her reputation as a versatile actress.

Transition to Hosting and Films

While continuing her work in television, Arya expanded her horizons by hosting a variety of shows. She hosted a cookery show, various award nights, and reality shows, including the musical game show Start Music Aaradhyam Paadum on Asianet, which she hosted across multiple seasons from 2019 to 2022. Her charm and wit as a host earned her accolades and a loyal audience.

Arya also transitioned to films, appearing in a number of Malayalam movies. Her filmography includes notable films like Lailaa O Lailaa (2015), Kunjiramayanam (2015), Pa Va (2016), Pretham (2016), Thoppil Joppan (2016), and Alamara (2017). She continued to take on diverse roles, showcasing her versatility as an actress.

Bigg Boss Malayalam Season 2

In 2020, Arya participated in the second season of the popular reality TV show Bigg Boss Malayalam, hosted by the legendary actor Mohanlal. Her time in the Bigg Boss house brought her immense visibility and further cemented her status as a beloved public figure. Arya’s presence in the house was marked by her candid nature and her ability to connect with both fellow contestants and the audience.

Personal Life

Arya’s personal life has been as dynamic as her professional career. She married Rohit Susheelan, an IT engineer and the brother of television actress Archana Suseelan. The couple has a daughter named Roya. In 2018, Arya opened a boutique named Aroya in Vazhuthacaud, showcasing her entrepreneurial spirit.
