Former India skipper MS Dhoni is all set to give a detailed account of his cricketing journey in a new web documentary “Roar of the Lion” that will be aired on Hotstar.

The trailer of the same clearly reveals that some of the unknown aspects of Dhoni’s journey will be touched upon in the documentary.

The official synopsis of the show reads, “Called MSD, Mahi, Captain Cool, Thala and more by the billions of fans that cheer him on and off the field, MSD’s story is known to all. Or so you think! He has another story to tell, one that not even his closest friends know. What is it all about? His toughest moment as a sportsman, cricketer, captain, husband, father or more?”

This is not the first time Dhoni’s life has been depicted on screen. Back in 2016, a biopic, “MS Dhoni: The Untold Story” was released in which actor Sushant Singh Rajput played the protagonist.

The 37-year-old in his illustrious career has led India to T20 World Cup and World Cup victories. After making his ODI debut in 2004, he has played 339 ODIs for the country and scored 10,474 runs at an average of 50.84.
