You cannot keep Mahendra Singh Dhoni out of action. The Chennai Super Kings captain is ready with his plan post the Indian Premier League Season 13.
Just before the departure to the UAE Dhoni had announced his retirement for all forms of international cricket. Now he is ready for his next innings post the IPL 2020.
Dhoni had forayed in the entertainment industry with a documentary as a producer last year. His next in the entertainment industry will be a mythological sci-fi web-series.
Dhoni Entertainment, the media company founded by the two-time World Cup-winning captain, had started with the documentary series Roar of the Lion last year.
Directed by Kabir Khan, Roar of the Lion charted the comeback of the Chennai Super Kings, the team led by Dhoni, after a two-year suspension for spot-fixing.
Dhoni Entertainment will now produce a series which is an adaptation of an unpublished book by a debutant author.
The cricketer’s wife Sakshi Dhoni, who is the managing director of the production house, said the upcoming series is a “thrilling adventure”.
“The book is a mythological sci-fi that 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,” said Sakshi.
The casting and location finalisation has begun for the web series.
