This is not the first time Dhoni’s brushes with films or the entertainment industry. Everyone knows Dhoni’s biopic – MS Dhoni: The Untold Story was released in 2016 and it turned out to be a huge hit. However, this time, Dhoni is entering the world of graphic novels, where he is playing one of the characters. It will be interesting to see how this Graphic novel shapes up.

The upcoming series is backed by Dhoni Entertainment, the media company that was founded by Dhoni and his wife Sakshi Singh Dhoni in 2019.

Reports of Indian Express suggests, 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.

Further, “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,” Sakshi said in a statement previously.

Moreover, Dhoni, who retired from international cricket in 2019, seems to be exploring newer avenues, and Atharva happens to be one among them.
