The fake Godman seems to be a go-to space for directors in India, as negative shades can be smartly infused into the character with ease. After seeing many films and shows in the same way, MX Player's upcoming series Aashram too, belongs to the same bandwagon.
Starring Bobby Deol as the 'baba' the series will take a look into the various sides of his character, who has a positive image to sport but is still a man who runs a women trafficking hub and other criminal activities. With a good cast all round, it does look like this series will bring some good performances even though the trailer doesn't promise something new and exciting.
Aashram is directed by Prakash Jha, and has Aaditi Pohaankar, Darshan Kumaar, Anupria Goenka and others in the cast apart from Bobby Deol. The series seems to be b3ased on many real life events taking place in the country, and could interest those who have a soft corner for such stories.
Aashram will stream on MX Player from the 28th of August.
