Chennai: Indian movie superstar Rajinikanth has released the first copy of MS Dhoni’s magnum opus new-age graphic novel ‘Atharva: The Origin’.

In the novel, Dhoni, with his vintage long hair, can be seen clad in a golden armor suit with the unmistakable air of a superhero.

Author Ramesh Thamilmani says, “..the overwhelming response we have received from MS Dhoni fans and avid book lovers alike has been nothing short of surreal.”

He adds: “Rajini sir, recognizing our work, and releasing the first copy just adds to the layer of excitement we’re already feeling.”

The author expressed gratitude to MSD for reposing faith in him and his narrative.

“I am confident that aficionados of superhero and action stories, as well as admirers of MS Dhoni, would enjoy this book and find it to be a unique reading experience,” he added.

Along with the purchase of the book, readers also get access to an exclusive AR app wherein one can scan the pages to experience 3D models of the characters, as well as some short games set in the imaginary world of Atharva.

The book is said to be the first novel in India to introduce the Augmented Reality feature.

Dhoni said, “Atharva: The Origin is a project I am thrilled to be a part of. It is an interesting project put together by a team of talented and passionate individuals. Rajini sir has recognised and appreciated the team’s work and we are elated that he has released the first copy of our book.”
