Money Heist has become one of the most loved and followed shows on Netflix right now, to the extent that many fans are trying to cast actors from their native countries in separate versions of the show. Indians too have not been behind in the trend, with many online polls also running as to which star will be cast as what character from Money Heist if a remake is ever made here.
Well, not to stress any any further because Money Heist director Alex Rodrigo himself has picked his choice of cast for the Indian version of show. Talking in an interview, Alex said that Professor’s role can be played by Tamil actor Vijay and/or Ayushmann Khurrana. He goes on to add that Ajith Kumar would fit the bill as Bogota and Shah Rukh Khan would be perfect as Berlin.
