Renowned Indian cricketer and former captain, MS Dhoni is all set to produce his first-ever animated spy series for all the anime lovers across the globe. The web series titled Captain 7 will be based on Dhoni. The number 7 in the title represents the cricketer’s jersey number that he donned in many one-day international matches.
The project is a joint venture between Mahendra Singh Dhoni and wife Sakshi Singh Dhoni’s production house Dhoni Entertainment Pvt Ltd and Black White Orange Brands Pvt Ltd. (BWO). Entering into the world of filmmaking, it is the first collaborative project of BWO with Dhoni Entertainment Pvt Ltd.
The first season of the much-awaited series will be launched in 2022 and the fans are already excited for the same. “The concept and story are great. It will bring to life my other passions along with cricket,” Mahendra Singh Dhoni, who retired from international cricket in 2020, said. Sakshi Singh Dhoni, talking about the series said that “Captain 7” will be a show full of adventure. Quoting her own words, “When BWO came to us with the concept of an animation fiction show based on Mahi, we were on board,” she added.
Bhavik Vora, Founder, and CEO of BWO said the team is happy to enter new territory with “Captain 7” which will take forward the legacy of former India skipper. “Sports are close to our hearts and we are huge Dhoni fans- the perfect formula to create ‘Captain 7’.
