Former Native American cricket captain Mahendra Singh Dhoni, who produced a documentary in the entertainment industry last year, will go on to support a mythological sci-fi web series. Dhoni Entertainment, the media company founded by the two-time World Cup-winning captain who announced his retirement from international cricket in August, produced their debut project in 2019, the documentary series “Roar of the Lion”.
Directed by Kabir Khan, “Roar of the Lion” charted the comeback of the Chennai Super Kings, the Chennai franchise of the Indian Premier League (IPL), led by skipper Dhoni, after a two-year suspension for spot-fixing.
Dhoni Entertainment will now produce a series adapted from an unpublished book by the debutant author.
Cricketer Sakshi Dhoni’s wife, who is the general manager of the production house, said the upcoming series is an “exciting adventure”.
The book is a mythological sci-fi that explores the journey of a mysterious Aghori imprisoned in a high-tech facility. The secrets revealed by this Aghori can reveal the myths of the ancient, beliefs of the existing and the course of the forthcoming.
“We want to make sure we perform all aspects of this universe and bring every character and story to the screen with as much precision as possible. Web series are more suited to our purpose than turning it into a feature film,” she said.
The creators are in the process of locking down the cast and location for the series.
