Former captain of the Indian cricket team Mahendra Singh Dhoni announced his retirement from international cricket on August 15, 2020. Since then, 'captain cool' has been keeping busy in some way or the other. Now, he is all set to venture into production. Dhoni will be producing India’s first animated spy universe titled Captain 7. Ardent cricket fans must be aware that the '7' in the title refers to the former captain's jersey number which was worn in multiple one-day international matches.
The first season of Captain 7 is currently in the pre-production stage and will be based on Dhoni. The project is a collaboration between Dhoni and his wife Sakshi Singh Dhoni’s production house Dhoni Entertainment Pvt Ltd and Black White Orange Brands Pvt Ltd. (BWO).

Talking about Captain 7, Dhoni, in a statement, said, "The concept and story is great. It will bring to life my other passions along with cricket." Sakshi added, "When BWO came to us with the concept of an animation fiction show based on Mahi, we were on board. A whole lot of adventure awaits you with Captain 7."
Dhoni established his company in Dhoni Entertainment in 2019 with the multilingual documentary Roar Of The Lion. Under the banner, Sakshi and Dhoni will have acquired the rights of an unpublished book of a debutant author. The upcoming web series will be a mythological sci-fi revolving around the journey of a mysterious Aghori. It is expected to be set in a high-tech facility on a remote island.
