MUMBAI: Former India captain Mahendra Singh Dhoni is all set to create an animated series titled ‘Captain 7’.
The number seven in the title is Dhoni’s jersey number, which he wore in a number of one-day international matches.
Dhoni Entertainment Pvt Ltd, owned by Dhoni and his wife Sakshi Singh Dhoni, and Black White Orange Brands Pvt Ltd are collaborating on the project (BWO).
The film, which is being billed as the country’s first “animated spy universe”, will debut in 2022. The title of the show is taken from the former cricketer and the concept and story are stated to be great.
Along with cricket, it will rekindle my other interests,” Dhoni said.
‘Captain 7’, according to Sakshi, will be a show full of “adventure”. “We were on board when BWO came to us with the idea of an animation fiction show focused on Mahi,” she said.
The team is excited to reach a new frontier with ‘Captain 7’, which will carry on the legacy of the former India captain, Bhavik Vora, founder and CEO of BWO, said.
“We love sports and are big Dhoni fans, so we came up with the perfect formula for ‘Captain 7’. This partnership with Dhoni Entertainment Pvt Ltd is a dream-come-true for us, and we can’t wait for audiences to see the show,” Vora said.
The partnership’s aim is to build a high end animation series that will be followed by a new season every year. The content will be available on a variety of sites around the world.
