Roar of the Lion is first big release of Hotstar Specials’ first big release and is will reportedly feature shows from India’s most acclaimed storytellers.
The official synopsis of Dhoni’s show reads: “Dhoni. Mahi. Captain Cool. Thala. Multiple names, many stories. But there's one story that the world has never heard.”
