Telugu streaming service Aha on Tuesday announced a new series called In the Name of God. Priyadarshi is in the lead role in the seven-part gangster series, directed by Suresh Krishna. Priyadarshi’s character look has been revealed in the poster of the show released today. The actor appears as a person who is no stranger to violence.
The name of God signifies a departure from the roles usually associated with Priyadarshi. He is well known for playing the role of the protagonist’s friend in Telugu films. Such has been the case since his breakout role in the 2017 blockbuster Arjun Reddy. But, in The Name of God, Priyadarshi is cast against Type.
Aha founder Allu Aravind and the show’s producer Suresh Krishna believe In the Name of God will prove to be a turning point in Priyadarshi’s career. He also believes that after this show, Priyadarshi will be considered to play the lead role in action films.
“Priyadarshi was a revelation in terms of her acting range and so was Nandini Rai, who, beyond her look, gave her performance a lot of emotional depth. The show is a complete package that will surprise everyone, ”said Suresh Krishna.

Priyadarshi is also very excited about the back-to-back success of her projects on various platforms. “I have had a memorable journey with Aha as a platformer, be it Hybath in the mail or halfway into ING. Even during the recent successful tour of Jathi Ratnalu in the US, many people came to me and showered their love for Mel, telling us about the vast reach that Aha enjoys. I have always seen Suresh Krishna as a director, and being part of his first production is a dream come true moment. I had a blistering experience during the shoot of the show, and I thank Vidyasagar for finding a side that I never knew about. Nandini Rai was not only a brilliant co-star, but also an outstanding artist who has received a lot of love from the audience, ”said Priyadarshi.
In The Name of God, Vidyasagar is written and directed by Muthukumar. The crime thriller series also stars Nandini Rai and Posani Krishna Murali in pivotal roles. It is expected to be released soon on Aha.
