Dhoni Entertainment is behind it, and it’s billed as a mythical sci-fi web series.
MS Dhoni, the former Indian cricket captain, unveiled the first look at his graphic novel Atharva: The Origin on Wednesday. It is based on the work of Ramesh Thamilmani, a writer. It is backed by Dhoni Entertainment and is billed as a mythical sci-fi web series.
Dhoni appears as an animated avatar on a battlefield, fighting against a demon-like army in the first peek footage. Dhoni, who retired from international cricket in 2019, appears to be branching out into new areas, one of which is Atharva.
In 2020, a “new age graphic novel” was presented, which was described as “an adaptation of an unpublished work by a debutant author.” Dhoni Entertainment’s managing director and Dhoni’s wife, Sakshi Singh Dhoni, remarked about the series’ production. It was described as a “thrilling series” by her.
“The novel is a mythological science fiction adventure that chronicles the journeys of a mysterious Aghori who has been imprisoned in a high-tech facility,” according to the publisher. This Aghori’s secrets have the ability to alter ancient myths, current beliefs, and future events.
“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
The couple’s media firm, Dhoni Entertainment, also produced their first production, the docuseries Roar of the Lion, for Disney+ Hotstar in 2019.
