“In The Name of God is a story which not only explores the seriousness of what is, but also goes into the realms of what could have been. Money and religion are the two key constituents of a thriller and we have abundance of both at the Padmanabhaswamy Temple,” he said.
“I have been very respectful to the deity as I have gone about building the thriller based in the temple and its surroundings,” he said in the release.
‘The Incredible Banker’, ‘The Bankster’, ‘If God was a Banker’ and ‘Bankerupt’ as well as ‘God is a Gamer’ are the other thrillers.
