2nd Venture: MS Dhoni & Sakshi’s Company To Produce Mythological Sci-Fi Web Series
Dhoni Entertainment, former India captain Mahendra Singh Dhoni’s media company, will be producing a mythological sci-fi web-series.
The company’s maiden venture was the documentary series ‘Roar of the Lion’ in 2019.
Directed by Kabir Khan, ‘Roar of the Lion’ was all about the comeback of Dhoni-led Chennai Super Kings in the IPL, following a two-year suspension from the league for spot-fixing.
Dhoni Entertainment’s next venture will be an adaptation of an unpublished book by a debutant author.
Dhoni’s wife Sakshi, managing director of the production house, said the upcoming series is a ‘thrilling adventure’.
“The book is a mythological sci-fi which explores the journey of a mysterious Aghori who has been captured at a high-tech facility. The secrets revealed by this Aghori could alter the myths of the ancient, beliefs of the existing and course of the forthcoming.
“We would like to ensure that we execute all the aspects of this universe and bring out every character and story to the screen, with as much precision as possible. Web-series fit our purpose better than adapting it into a feature film,” she said.
The cast and location for shooting the series are being finalized.
Dhoni, who announced his retirement from international cricket on August 15,is currently busy playing the IPL in the UAE.
