Former Indian Cricket Team captain Mahendra Singh Dhoni, who debuted in the film industry with a documentary as a producer last year, will next be financing a fantastic sci-fi web-series.

Directed by Kabir Khan, Roar of the Lion charted the revival of the Chennai Super Kings, the Chennai franchise of the Indian Premier League (IPL), under captain Dhoni, following a two-year suspension for spot-fixing.
Dhoni Entertainment is now going to produce a series which is an adoption of an unprinted book by a debutant author.
The cricketer’s wife Sakshi Dhoni, who is the managing director of the production company, announced the upcoming series is a “thrilling adventure”.
“The book is a mythological sci-fi that investigates the exploration of a spiritual Aghori who has been captured at a high-tech facility. The mysteries revealed by this Aghori could change the legends of ancient times, beliefs of the current, and sequence of the future.
“We would like to assure you that we execute all the aspects of this universe and bring out every role and story to the screen, with as much accuracy as possible. Web-series meet our mission better than modifying it into a feature film,” she said.
The producers are in the process of casting the actors and locations for the series.
