Would you like to see a Bollywood remake of Money Heist?

Needless to say, Money Heist has gained a lot of popularity and is one of the top picks for desi folks as wellAll of us, at least for once, have wondered which desi actors would play each character if the show was made here. In a recent interview, Money Heist’s director, Alex Rodrigo picked Indian actors as cast for an Indian remake.

Vijay Thalapathy as Professor

Could it be the glasses? Also, Ayushmann Khurrana won’t be happy to hear this, since he wanted the role pretty badly.

Shah Rukh Khan as Berlin

SRK is always a wise choice, what can I say? The king reigns supreme.

Ranveer Singh as Denver

Ranveer can pull off a lot of characters with his acting, sure, but would be his type? I wonder if anyone can ever do Denver’s laughng impression.

Ajith Kumar as Bogota

Spot on.

Suriya as Suarez

This has to be the desi-est of all. I can literally hear the DHOOM TANA NA NA music in the background.

Mahesh Babu as Tamayo

I do very much mind the age difference! Also, Mahesh Babu just doesn’t have that wickedness to his face, at all.


Regardless, we thought we’d also add a list of actors who we think could do a good job for the Bollywood remake of Money Heist

Deepika Padukone as Nairobi

Deepika has it in her to rock the role of Nairobi – a boss lady with a heart of pure gold!

Kalki Koechlin as Tokyo

How hard can it be to mess everything up? Kalki will do a great job by being impulsive all the time, yet being as charming as ever.

Ishaan Khattar as Rio

The good boy in the bad world? It must not be so hard for Ishaan to be vulnerable all the time. Nope.

Anushka Sharma as Stockholm

First of all, the resemblance?? Anushka can be fragile yet strong and can fall in love with a robber – that’s all it takes to be Stockholm.

Boman Irani as Bogota

Boman Irani’s versatility can fit him into Bogota perfectly.

Tabu as Lisbon

The chief cop who fell in love and picked the other side – sounds like something Tabu’s character would do!

Nawazuddin Siddiqui as Palermo

The man with the plan, the man no one can read – nobody other than Nawazuddin can perform this role as aptly.

Manoj Bajpayee as Arturo
