Bobby Deol wrote in his caption: "Overwhelmed with the love and affection showered on me." This acceptance and appreciation will be my most cherished reward ... Love you all."

Take a look at Bobby Deol's post here:
Class Of '83, directed by Atul Sabharwal and produced by Shah Rukh Khan's Red Chillies Entertainment, marked Bobby Deol's debut in the digital arena. The film showcases the journey of a cop shunted to a punishment posting as the dean of the police academy, who trains five best candidates to bring down the corrupt officials backed by some of the most-wanted criminals.
In his review for NDTV, film critic Saibal Chatterjee gave the film 2.5 stars out of 5 but he praised Bobby Deol's performance and wrote: "The set-up is drearily familiar, but Bobby Deol springs a surprise with his unfussy impersonation of a stolid, righteous policeman who runs afoul of his corrupt political boss."
Meanwhile,Aashram, which marked Prakash Jha's digital debut as a director, showcases the story of a spiritual leader named Baba Nirala of Kashipur, his cult, and his transformation from a Godman to a conman.
