When Bobby Deol turned into a ‘baba’ for Aashram, there were objections raised from a particular section of the audience. Now, the makers are back with Aashram Chapter 2: The Dark Side and the story continues.

They are brahmacharya (stage of studentship), grihasta (the stage of a householder), vanaprastha (stage of a forest dweller) and sanyasa (stage of renunciation).”
It further states, “Also Ashram concept in India is hope, faith and beliefs of young aspirants, who were willing To let go of everything and pursue their education and spiritual ideals with single-minded devotion.
