Aashram 3 director Prakash Jha on why he chose Bobby Deol for the role and what to expect from the new season

The popular MX Player series Aashram is gearing up for another exciting new season of Baba Nirala’s exploits. Director Prakash Jha, who also serves as a producer on the series, recently opened up about the upcoming Season 3 of the show.

In a conversation with The Statesman, Jha talked about how MX Player approached him for the project, and how he agreed to do it as he found the premise interesting. On why he decided to go with Bobby Deol as the show’s lead, the director said that he was on the lookout for someone who could play a character who looked calm on the outside, but had a ‘darkness’ within him. “I think he’s (Deol) the greatest fit for the part,” said the director.

On what to expect from season 3, Jha said that the growth witnessed by the characters during the previous seasons would lead to the progression of storylines in the new season. Changes in ‘political interventions’ and the fate that will befall Baba would be explored.

The director also opened up about the ‘outrage’ he witnessed in the name of the show, and revealed that about 50-60 people had shown up on the series’ sets one day. The group performed stunts and tried to instigate the cast and crew, and the problem was solved after an hour, once the police arrived.

In addition to Deol, the series also features Aaditi Pohankar, Esha Gupta, Chandan Roy Sanyal, Darshan Kumaar, Anupria Goenka, Adhyayan Suman, Tridha Choudhury, Vikram Kochhar, Tushar Pandey, Anuritta Jha, Rajeev Siddhartha, Parinitaa Seth, Tanmay Ranjan, Preeti Sood, Jahangir Khan, Kanupriya Gupta and Navdeep Tomar in pivotal roles.

Aashram 3 will be available to stream on MX Player from June 3, 2022.
