Sports documents are becoming the flavour of the season. With Netflix and Amazon bringing sports-related web series, it is time for someone else to join the ranks to – and that’s Hotstar. Hotstar brings to us Roar of the Lion, a web series that will talk about the struggle the Mahendra Singh Dhoni and others faced during the initial stages of the IPL. As far as the trailer shows, Dhoni will also speak about the match-fixing controversy that he was embroiled in for a while. Earlier, Netflix gave us the sports web series, Mumbai Indians, which talked about the experience Mumbai Indians had in the IPL, the one where they won the first.
It is good to see that Indian audiences and Indian content creators are warming up to sports based content. That is one category that’s sorely missing content now. In the US, Amazon Prime has already signed up juicy contracts that will broadcast football and other favourite sports to Amazon prime audiences. In India as well, Hotstar brings to the table IPL, Live to its audiences.
