The trailer of Aashram featuring Bobby Deol released on Monday. By the looks of it, seems like the web series is a compelling suspense-drama about the country’s exploitative godmen feeding the minds of ordinary men with irrationality.
Bobby, who ventures into the world of web series with the Prakash Jha directorial, essays the role of god-man Kashipur Waale Baba Nirala, enjoying a global following. The trailer begins with proclaiming Baba Nirala, bearing uncanny similarities with the controversial Indian god-man and mystic Osho. It also portrays Babaji and his ashram coming under question for corrupt practices.
Produced by Prakash Jha, the nine-part series also stars Aaditi Pohankar, Chandan Roy Sanyal, Darshan Kumaar, Anupriya Goenka, Adhyayan Suman, Tridha Choudhury, Vikram Kochhar, Tushar Pandey, Sachin Shroff, Anuritta K Jha and Rajeev Siddhartha in significant roles.
Aashram will begin streaming on MX Player from August 28.
