Roar of the Lion is the first big release of Hotstar Specials, which features shows from India’s most acclaimed storytellers. Every show that will be released on the platform will be available in seven languages, including Hindi, Marathi, Bengali, Tamil, Telugu, Kannada and Malayalam.
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?”
On his collaboration with Hotstar, MS Dhoni said, “I am excited to see my first production collaboration come to life. The story and the narrative are unique, and we believe it has found a perfect home in the bold and non-conforming Hotstar Specials.”
