'Ashram 3' shooting continues despite protest by right-wing groups

Bhopal, Oct 26 (TIWN) Film actor Bobby Deol starrer web-series "Ashram-3" landed in a controversy on the second day of its shooting after a group of right-wing outfit, Bajrang Dal vandalised the set and threw ink on its director Prakash Jha in Bhopal.

Bajrang Dal leaders talking to IANS said they have objection to its title – ‘Ashram’ and its content which is an attempt to tarnish the image of Hinduism and its Ashram system.  Replying to a question whether they have gone through the script before raising objection, Sushil Sudele, state convener of Bajrang Dal, said, “It is already known in public from the last two series of the same drama. We accept that some Ashrams have been indulging in such kind of activities and their heads are in jail now. If you want to make a film, then give a particular name of that particular Ashram. You cannot tarnish the image of the entire Ashram system, this is our objection.” 

Bajrang Dal members said if film directors and actors will continuously make such types of films or web series, people will lose faith in Ashram system.  “Title ‘Ashram’ indicates that it would be a religious drama, but the content is filled with vulgarity, that is why we have asked director Jha to change the name of his web-series and he has agreed,” the Bajrang Dal leader said.
