Money Heist’s Lisbon sings Salman Khan’s Chunari Chunari, impressed Sushmita Sen says ‘yeh baat!’. Watch – bollywood


A couple of months after a fan-edit video of K-pop band BTS dancing to Chunari Chunari went viral, Money Heist actor Itziar Ituño’s rendition of the 90s hit is being widely shared online. Picturised on Salman Khan and Sushmita Sen in the movie Biwi No 1, the song used to be sung by Abhijeet Bhattacharya and Anuradha Sriram.

Sushmita took to Twitter to lend her stamp of approval to Ituño’s rendition. “Yeh baat!!” she wrote, and added a bunch of emojis. Ituño plays Raquel Murillo (Lisbon) in the hit Netflix series. In the interview, to News18, she also mentioned that she loves Bollywood dance a lot.


Prior to now, fans had discovered an India connect for actors Alba Flores and Miguel Herrán, who play Nairobi and Rio on the show, respectively. Herrán starred in a desi commercial nearly five years ago and his fans are only just noticing it. Earlier, a video of Nairobi actor Alba Flores speaking Telugu in the Spanish movie Vicente Ferrer (2013), had gone viral. Alba played a Telugu woman in the movie.

Director Alex Rodrigo also picked a hypothetical desi cast for the show. In an interview to YouTube channel BehindwoodsTV, Rodrigo used to be shown pictures of several Indian actors such as Vijay and Shah Rukh Khan, and asked to cast them in the roles. Rodrigo said that it wasn’t easy to pick out one, but that Ayushmann Khurrana would probably make for a good Indian version of the Professor.
