Chandrashekhar Tiwari, an office bearer of the Manch said that the movie title floats the theory that bad things occur only in ashrams. Terming it unfortunate, Tiwari said, “If anything wrong was committed in Ashram of Ram Rahim or any other self-proclaimed godman, then the producers should name that particular ashram and its gurus, but no one has right to use generalized word ‘ashram’ for depicting such scandalous incidents, he said.

The Manch has urged the chief minister and the home minister to intervene in the issue.

A Prakash Jha web series ‘Ashram-3’ is being shot in Bhopal. The actors in the series including Bobby Deol, Tridha Chowdhary and Darshan Kumar have arrived in the city.
