Money Heist is on everyone’s mind and so is the thought of what if it is remade with an Indian cast? While Alex Rodirgo, the director of Money Heist, in an interview, chose a few Indian actors as his ideal cast we can’t help but continue thinking what if…
Here we have put together a list of actors that would make the ideal cast of Indian Money Heist.
1. Ayushmann Khurrana as The Professor
Ayushmann gave us a glimpse of his avatar as The Professor when he shared his willingness to play the role of The Professor in this tweet with us while playing Bella Ciao from Money Heist. Not only his looks but his calm demeanor also makes him an ideal choice for the role.
2. Tabu as Raquel
The versatile Tabu is a fine choice for playing the strong-headed character of Raquel. We’ve seen her don a similar character in Drishyam.
3. Alia Bhatt as Tokyo
Safeena from Gully Boy gone rogue after a couple of breakups is nearly Tokyo from Money Heist, won’t you agree? Besides, the differences between would be unrecognisable once Alia puts on those bangs.
4. Ishaan Khatter as Rio
The chocolate boy from Dhadak turned lover boy who is head over heels in love with an older Safeena! Also, just imagine how Ishaan and Alia’s chemistry would turn out to be. Also, Miguel Herran and Ishaan Khatter are nearly the same age.
5. Radhika Apte as Nairobi
The versatile Radhika Apte is the perfect actor to portray the bad-ass Nairobi. Her successful performances in Ghoul and Sacred Games has proved that Radhika Apt-hai.
6. Sanjay Dutt as Helsinki
Picture Kancha Cheena with a beard and without the darkness of his soul... doesn’t that look like Helsinki that is made for India? Besides it would be nice to see Sanju play an affable character similar to that of his Munna Bhai.
7. Boman Irani as Moscow
The no-fuss professor from 3 Idiots with a stubble minus the madness and frenzy of running an engineering college...what do you get? A desi Moscow! We’re sure the versatile Boman can not only pull off this role but he might even portray it better than the original one!
8. Varun Dhawan as Denver
The craziness of Varun’s character in Main Tera Hero combined with the caring nature of his character in October is the perfect Denver. It would be a treat to see him romance the Indian Stockholm - Priyanka on screen!
9. Priyanka Chopra as Stockholm
Stockholm can be submissive and dominative at the same time, just like Priyanka Chopra in 7 Khoon Maaf. If anyone has the right personality to play this role it is our Desi Girl.
10. Ranbir Kapoor as Berlin
What do you get when you cross the persistent Ayan from Ae Dil Hai Mushkil with the grab-life-by-the-horns Kabir from Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani? A videshi-desi Berlin who actually sees the job through!
11. Prakash Raj as Arturo
We’ve seen Prakash Raj place unimaginable obstacles in the way of our protagonists multiple times only to see his hopes of taking over get shattered. Besides, there is something about Prakash Raj’s characters that make us hate them without any effort. The perfect Arturo, indeed!
