The â€œnew age graphic novelwas announced in 2020 as â€œan adaptation of an unpublished book by a first-time author.â€ Dhoniâ€™s wife, Sakshi Singh Dhoni, CEO of Dhoni Entertainment, spoke about the production of the series.
â€œThe book is a mythological science fiction that explores the journey of a mysterious Aghori who has been captured in a high-tech facility. The secrets revealed by this Aghori could alter the myths of the ancients, the beliefs of what exists and the course of what is to come.
â€œWe would like to make sure that we execute every aspect of this universe and bring every character and story to the screen, as accurately as possible. Web series fit our purpose better than adapting them into a movie,â€ Sakshi said in a previous statement.
