India cricket captain Virat Kohli will make his foray into the world of animation with StarPlus’ latest limited series Super V . The cricketer has lent his voice to the main character of the show.

Kohli announced the launch of the show at Star Studios in the city on Saturday, in the presence of Aakriti Sharma, who plays Kulfi on the show, Kulfi Kumar Bajewala. The eight-part show is centred around a young Kohli who learns a family secret one night in a dream, in which he is a superhero and has a mission to accomplish. The show focuses on how he balances life as a young cricketer, along with being a superhero.

“My childhood is somewhat similar to the one as the main character in the series. It wasn’t exactly like the one shown on the show since there is a proper storyline and a sequence of events,” Kohli said. “Each episode has a great message and I have lots of good memories with my family and friends, regarding cricket.”

Kohli said he wasn’t completely sold on the idea of the show at first. He agreed when he saw it. “The fact that the show is not just entertainment but also gives the viewer some kind of clarity is something that is important to me. It’s a form of motivation,” he added.

Super V will release on November 5, which is also Kohli’s 31st birthday, on StarPlus, Hotstar, MarvelHQ, Disney Channel and Star Sports.
