The company will now produce a series which in turn is an adaptation of an unpublished book by a debutant author.
The former India captain’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 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.
Dhoni announced his retirement from international cricket on August 15 but continues to play for CSK in the IPL.
According to reports, the company is still in the process of finalising cast and crew for the sci-fi series.
