Aarya and The Godfather share compelling parallels, both centred around reluctant family leaders. In The Godfather, Al Pacino's character never sought the role of a don, much like Aarya, an ordinary housewife forced into the family business. Elaborating on the same, Ram Madhvani, the creator, co-director, and co-producer of Disney+ Hotstar's Aarya season 3, said, "Critics have mentioned in the past that 'Aarya' is a tribute to 'The Godfather' in a way. It is inspired by 'Penoza' and revolves around a family, specifically about a woman who never wanted to become a don, much like Al Pacino's character in The Godfather. He never wanted to be a don; he was just an ordinary person who never wanted to join the family business. In 'Aarya,' we have just another ordinary housewife who never wanted to take over the family business, but she has to, and then she has to pay the price for it. In 'The Godfather,' he took over to protect his father, while in 'Aarya,' she takes over to protect her children, and that's really the key difference. What if Al Pacino got killed, and Diane Keaton had to take over? What would have happened? This is essentially the question we explore. Therefore, a significant part of the show is about family."

He adds, "In season 1, we had the Bhagavad Gita, which highlights the roles that a woman, or any man or anyone, plays. In this case, what Aarya chooses to be is a daughter first and a mother first. She always prioritizes being a mother, and that is essentially what she does to protect her children. She will do anything to protect her children, and the show delves into the price and sacrifices associated with that."
