MX Original Has Dropped The Trailer For 'Aashram' And Bobby Deol Is Back In A Brand-New Look
While most of us believe in a higher power, some choose to put their faith in other fellow humans who are charismatic, have the ability to lead their followers and self appoint themselves as ‘gurus’. In recent times, we have seen many controversies and allegations come up against these so-called leaders and acclaimed director Prakash Jha has decided to bring this narrative to our screens.
MX Original ‘Aashram’ is a nine-part series directed and produced by Praksha Jha that stars Bobby Deol in the lead role as Kashipur Waale Baba Nirala who derives his power from the influence he has over the lower strata of the society.
The trailer was dropped earlier this week and showed Bobby Deol in a never-seen-before avatar as he walked into a sea of followers. This man is considered a Messiah for the poor but when a skeleton resurfaces in the adjacent forest land, it disrupts the peace of the city in the crucial times of the upcoming state elections and all the links of the investigation mysteriously point towards the Aashram.?The show will be one to watch as they navigate through the ever-prevalent blind faith in god-men and how they sometimes misuse that power.
The series is set to release on MX Player on August 28th and 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 pivotal roles.
The trailer already has us hooked to the story and we cannot wait to binge-watch the show in less than a week!
