Kashipur Wale Baba Nirala, the role played by Bobby Deol has made a rapid comeback after Aashram Chapter 1 that ended in August. Now two months letter we are picking up from where it was left off. Prakash Jha's web-series Chapter 1 received a positive response from its viewers in but just before the release of Aashram Chapter 2, the makers of the web series received a legal notice from Karni Sena. The notice stated that this web series is violating Hinduism culture and creating disrespect in society for such holy places. Prakash Jha in repose said that it is the choice audience and they will decide if it should be banned or not.

However, Aashram Chapter 1 received a huge success but Aashram Chapter 2 did not create much of an impact as Chapter 1 but it is not entirely useless as it has a purpose of entertainment and suspense to be revealed. Baba Nirala's gloves are off and now he is not pretending to be what he is not except for in his durbar when people come to seek blessings from him and to pay him respect. In this season he is busy with preying his evil eyes on young women. 

Baba's Aashram manufactures an addictive substance as 'prasad ka laddoo' which is used for drug business in politics. To reveal the connections between every murder and attack Ujagar Singh role played by Darshan Kumaar and Sadu role played by Vikram Kochhar play the role of drug dealers to get an entry in the Aashram. Whereas Aaditi Pohankar who is playing the role of Pammi is working very hard to win the wrestling championship.

Her brother Satti, the role played by Tushar Pandey is sent off to another city as an accountant, and his wife Babita is in the captivation of Baba Nirala. Anupriya Goenka who is playing the role of Dr. Natasha is helping the cops and the journalist Akki (Rajeev Siddhartha) to find evidence against the Aashram and Baba Nirala. The novelty of Baba Nirala has pulled off from the first season and viewers were aware of it, now the only thing that could engage the audience to watch this web series is adding new elements and Prakash Jha has done it to an extent. He is very much skilled to create such characters and story which is why the story was not fully dull.
