New Delhi:

The Netflix original Money Heist (known as La Casa de Papel in Spanish), is one of the biggest non-English originals to rule the world of web. With Bella Ciao on every tongue, and Professor memes taking over the Internet, the show definitely made a mark over the years and its popularity needs no introduction. Bollywood star Ayushmann Khurrana too is a huge fan of the Spanish series Money Heist and he has established his love for the series time and again. Be it recreating the Bella Ciao theme or dressing up like The Professor (beard - check, glasses -check, swag - check). Ayushmann recently shot a video with Netflix, showcasing his love for the series. He also talked about his favourite character, the plot twist that affected him the most and more.

The actor's favourite character is the man with a plan. El Professor - for those who didn't get the refence. "My favourite character from Money Heist is The Professor because he is the ultimate mastermind. He is calm, collected and always plans ahead. He is strategic. Even though he is leading a heist, you can't help but love him and his intellect and his moral principles towards his team and people in general. His forward thinking approach and getting the team to stick to the plan is on point."

How about his favourite scene you ask? Ayushmann Khurrana offers a vivid description. "My favourite scene is from Season 5 Volume 1, where Berlin trains his son how to execute a heist and they steal together. That was the most exciting scene to watch and kept me on the edge of my seat. Who thought one could heist with so much style and swag." We hear you, Ayushmann.

Time and again, The Professor and his team have tried to save one of their own. Sometimes they succeeded, other times, cue sad music. When asked, which death in the show affected him the most, the actor said, "I think both Tokyo and Nairobi deaths were hard to watch. They are great characters and were gone too soon. If I could bring back one character, it would be Tokyo as she is also narrating the show and it just doesn't feel the same without her. She is brave and fearless. Her energy will be missed in the finale."

So, how excited is Ayushmann Khurrana for the finale and how big a fan he is? The National Award winning actor has answers to both the questions: "Over time, I've become a huge fan of Money Heist and it's rightfully found a prominent place in pop culture. Getting to work on this unique project has been special given my fondness for the series as well as The Professor. The characters give us an immersive experience and you feel completely invested in their journey throughout the series. While I'm super excited for the finale, it's definitely disappointing that this heist is coming to an end."

Money Heist Season 5 Part 2 will release on Netflix on December 3.
