Volume 1 of Season 5 of the popular Netflix show Money Heist is less than a week away and the makers have left no stone unturned to remind us to mark 3 September, 2021 on our calendars. Earlier in the month, Netflix had released the trailer for Volume 1. Be it YouTube or Instagram, it only had to be an advertisement for it to be the Money Heist Fan Anthem; ‘Jaldi Aao’.
The ‘Jaldi Aao’ song is set along with the Money Heist’s official tune, Bella Ciao, and chants ‘Come soon’ in different Indian languages. It stars Indian celebrities like Anil Kapoor, Rana Daggubati, Hardik Pandya, Radhika Apte, and Shruti Haasan. The video song recreates a few characters and moments from the show. While Shruti Haasan is seen channeling Nairobi, with a flower in her mouth, Anil Kapoor dances on the money bed just like Denver did during the first heist.
The Fan Anthem reaffirmed that Money Heist need not only be watched in Spanish and English but can now be streamed in Hindi, Telugu and Tamil also.
Yes, Money Heist is now streaming with Tamil and Telugu audio.
No, Tokyo is not Tirunelveli and Nairobi is not Nellore.
