Netflix Original series Money Heist has spread its craze across the globe. So to so, that Bollywood actor Ayushmann Khurrana even expressed his wish to play the lead character, Professor, if it ever gets remade here. And seems like that has become his new identity as even cricket legend Sachin Tendulkar addressed him as the popular character from the show. Read below to know what exactly happened.
Sachin Tendulkar celebrated his birthday yesterday, and people across the country including Tinsel townies took to social media to wish him on his big day. But what caught our attention was the Master Blaster’s reply to Andhadhun actor Ayushmann Khurrana.
While wishing Sachin Ayushmann wrote, “Dear Sir SRT. I’ve always prayed for you whenever you walked out to bat. Have witnessed every 100 of yours. LIVE. May you also live a hundred years. Happy bday!”. The message reached the Cricketer who had for sure seen Ayushmann’s video singing Bella Ciao, in his rather adorable reply wrote, “Thanks for your prayers & support over the years, ‘Professor’. I too am praying that no one gets out and everyone stays home.”

Ayushmann who loved the series, took to Instagram and posted the video of him playing the theme song of the show on piano.
