After making a smashing comeback and winning hearts with her top-notch performance in her OTT debut Aarya, Sushmita Sen is now all set to rule the digital space once again. On Thursday, the actress took to her Instagram handle and dropped the first look of her upcoming web series - Taali. In the picture, she looked strong and powerful with an intense expression on her face. She wore a red and green saree and added a dark red lip-shade and a bindi to her look.

Sushmita’s sister-in-law and television actress Charu Asopa also shared that she is so proud of her ‘didi’ and wrote, “Wowww… First look is awesome.. so proud of you didi. looking forward …love you didi."
Just a couple of days back, it was reported that Sushmita admired the character of Gauri - a fearless, warm-hearted, strong-willed woman struggling against all difficulties for India’s transgender population. It is therefore, she decided to rise beyond the role of Aarya Sareen.
