On Wednesday, former India skipper Mahendra Singh Dhoni unveiled the first look from his upcoming graphic novel titled ‘Atharva: The Origin’. Dhoni shared the first look teaser of his upcoming mythological sci-fi web series on his Facebook handle.
“Happy to announce my new Avatar…..Atharva….,” MSD captioned the post.
The preview features Dhoni in an animated avatar on a battlefield, and his character could be seen fighting against an army of demons. Notably, this series is backed by Dhoni Entertainment – a media company founded by Dhoni and his wife Sakshi Singh Dhoni in 2019.
Although, this is not the first time Dhoni has been associated with films or the entertainment industry. Dhoni’s biopic – MS Dhoni: The Untold Story, was a super-duper hit in 2016 where his character was portrayed by late Bollywood actor Sushant Singh Rajput.
