Speaking about his love for Money Heist and its popularity globally, Ayushmann said, “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.”
Revealing about his favourite Money Heist character of all time, Ayushman said, “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.”
Talking about his most favourite scene from the show, Ayushman said, “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!”
Speaking about a death that hit him hard, Ayushman 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.”
