Ashram 3 Trailer
Prakash Jha in his series Ashram captures the satirical opinion that surrounds self-proclaimed Godmen with thoughts crossing – “Ashram based on which baba”. Although the story does use fictional attributes, the majority of the story is based on the activities of a self-proclaimed Godman, Gurmeet Ram Rahim. However, it remains one of the best-acclaimed series with regard to the subject.
The producers have not released the Ashram 3 trailer. It will be unveiled probably a few weeks before the release. But keep on watching this space for official updates as and when they come.
Ashram 3 Cast
The original star cast of Season 1 and Chapter 2 will be retained. However, Jha has confirmed that there will be surprise comebacks from earlier Seasons.
Jha is true to his word. According to the latest news, Jannat 2 actress Esha Gupta has been roped in to play the role of Bobby Deol’s publicist. In her role, she will be seen handling the press and public image of Baba Nirala. She will project him to be the Messiah of the downtrodden!

- Chandan Roy Sanyal as Bhopa Bhai / Bhopa Swami / Bhupendra Singh
- Aaditi Pohankar as Parminder aka Pammi

Recent news coming in says that Jagriti fame actor Yogendra Verma has been roped in for Ashram chapter 3. Details on his role portrayal are awaited.
As far as episodes in Chapter 3 will air, it is pure speculation. Possibly 9, keeping up with the past seasons.
What will be Ashram Chapter 3 plot?
Following the heels of Ashram 1, we see how Baba Nirala (Bobby Deol) becomes ruthless in his attempt to gain power. He relies on the corrupt politicians to cover his hide, all the while preying on innocent women who seek deliverance.
Being a conman he is quite talented in hiding his true intentions from the public and wears a mask of pretence before his devotees. Ujagar Singh, a cop, directs himself towards capturing Baba Nirala who doesn’t seem at all like the person he is supposed to be. The skeletons and dead bodies on the Ashram property further act as a catalyst that adds to the story.
The question remains whether the cop will unearth Baba’s crimes or not. The lapse of faith of some devotees in him adds to the unravelling of the mystery, with several others seeking revenge.
Fans are expecting Season 3 to be the climax with Baba getting exposed. Yet it remains unclear whether Ashram Chapter 3 would be the last or the makers will continue to expose the sinister designs!
What is Ashram 3 shooting news?
The shooting for Season 3 started on October 3 and on its second day, it landed in a dispute. Ashram 3 shooting happening in Bhopal saw the right-wing outfit, Bajrang Dal creating a ruckus on the set. They even threw ink on director Prakash Jha and tried all means to disrupt.
Their contempt was for the title ‘Ashram’ as well as the portrayal. They vandalized the set because they felt the web series was an attempt to tarnish the perception of Hinduism and its Ashram system. Bajrang Dal activists tried to convince Prakash Ja to change the name of the series. The vandalism and disruption of peaceful production work have been strongly condemned by The Producers Guild of India. Issuing a statement, it reads.
“The Producers Guild of India strongly condemns the brazen acts of violence, harassment and vandalism faced by the crew involved in the production of the series Ashram in Bhopal.”
“Unfortunately, this is not an isolated incident and the Guild is alarmed to note the frequency with which both the production and exhibition sectors are severely and illegally disrupted by various elements with impunity.”
In spite of controversies, the shooting is on. At present production team is about to wrap up their Ashram 3 shooting schedule planned for Bhopal and its surrounding locations.
Is Ashram a real life story?
The makers claim that the Ashram is pure fiction and that any resemblance with real-life characters is coincidental. However, the plot appears to have picked up from the true-life narratives of a few self-proclaimed Godmen in India. For instance Gurmeet Ram Rahim Singh cult head of the Dera Sacha Sauda who has been convicted of rape and murder in 2017. Fans are drawing comparisons of Baba Nirala with Gurmeet due to the music concerts and connection with the youth he enjoys. Many believe that the story of the Aashram series is exposure to the rise and fall of Baba.
There are many others who were made celebrities by their followers and had a chequered background similar to the one in the Ashram series. The famous ones include rape-accused Nithyananda, Asaram Bapu, Swami Vikasanand, Swami Bhimanand. They all have a history of loot, rape, hoarding, and political patronage.
