In an interview with Behindwoods, Money Heist’s director Alex Rodrigo revealed who he thought could play the central characters in the Indian version of the show. 

Alex discussed what it was like to work on the script, as the shooting was taking place and what went behind building characters like the Professor and Berlin.
