Money Heist is one of the most popular shows on Netflix and recently aired its fourth season on the OTT platform. In an interview to YouTube channel BehindwoodsTV, Money Heist director Alex Rodrigo picked Indian actors who he felt would be best suited for an Indian remake of the Spanish-language show.

He stated that he wasn’t making the choices based on their work but on their appearances instead.

Rodrigo picked Ayushmann Khurrana as the Indian version of the Professor. “The glasses, the movement,” Rodrigo said, on the similarity between Ayushmann and the Professor.

Rodrigo picked Mahesh Babu as Tamayo, Ajith Kumar as Bogota and Shah Rukh as Berlin. He also picked Ranveer Singh as Denver and Surya as Suarez.


“I have a friend, who is an Indian actress, Usha Jadhav, and she told me about the phenomenon in India, and all I can say is thank you,” he said on being asked if he knew how popular the show was in India.
