MS Dhoni forayed into the world of entertainment last year with his Hotstar special Roar of the Lion, which he produced along with Kabir Khan. The documentary focused on the explosive comeback of the Dhoni-led Indian Premiere League (IPL) team Chennai Super Kings, after his two-year ban for spot-fixing.

But now, it looks like the cricketer and producer wants to take a new creative direction with his next project. He and his wife Sakshi Dhoni, Managing Director of Dhoni Productions, will reportedly produce a new webseries which is an adaptation of an unpublished book by debutant author, according to Hindustan Times.

 

 

Sakshi Dhoni shared her excitement for the new project, and defined the upcoming series as 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.

There is no information on the release date yet, since the makers are currently busy with finding the right cast and locations.
