Dhoni's wife Sakshi Singh Dhoni, who is the managing director of Dhoni Entertainment called it a 'thrilling series'. Sakshi Dhoni was quoted as saying by Indian Express, "This book is a mythological sci-fi which explores the journey of a mysterious Aghori who has been captured at a high-tech facility. The secrets revealed by this Aghori could alter the myths of the ancient, beliefs of the existing and course of the forthcoming."
"We would like to ensure that we execute all the aspects of this universe and bring out every character and story to the screen, with as much precision as possible. Web-series fit our purpose better than adapting it into a feature film," she added.
