Former India cricket captain Mahendra Singh Dhoni who recently announced his retirement from international cricket is set to don a new hat. While the World Cup-winning skipper already discursively forayed into the film industry with his biopic starring late actor Sushant, Dhoni along with his wife Sakshi will be producing a mythological sci-fi web series.
Dhoni Entertainment, the media company founded by the cricketer already backed a documentary series ‘Roar Of The Lion’ as a producer in 2019. The production house will now produce a series which is an adaptation of an unpublished book by a debutant author.
Dhoni’s wife Sakshi who is the managing director of the production house dropped the news on her account. “The book is a mythological sci-fi which explores the journey of a mysterious Aghori who has been captured at a high-tech facility. 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,” she said.
According to the sources, the makers are in the process of locking the cast and location for the series. Dhoni is now leading Chennai Super Kings in IPL season 13.
