Samir said, “I hate seafood and eating a live octopus! But it was a must for the scene.” IANS LUDHIANA | FRIDAY | 3 SEPTEMBER 2021 Alarm For the love of Professor bells... Bhumi Pednekar is trying to create as much awareness as possible towards climate change. From collaborating with climate activists across the country to using her social media to raise awareness on this subject to participating in conventions to discuss the future roadmap on climate action, Bhumi is working non-stop to protect the future of our planet. Stills from the promotional video, The Money Heist Fan Anthem of Netflix (Jaldi Aao) A still from Money Heist Bhumi Pednekar wants everyone to do their bit to save planet Earth She says there is still time to protect the Earth but for that we will all have to come together and make changes in our daily lives. Bhumi says, “Yes, we are aware that the climate crisis is on the rise but we are nowhere close to what we all should be doing to protect the environment. It will need all of us to be extremely conscious about what we do in our daily lives to protect the future that lies ahead.” Bhumi is worried about the extreme weather conditions plaguing our planet recently. She says, “We can see that we are experiencing extreme weather conditions and that will only deteriorate further in the coming years. Researchers and data are telling us this so it’s no longer an assumption. We will have to be conscious about the crisis we are in and how much worse it will get in the new decades.” They sang Jaldi Aao, waited patiently for the story to unravel and now that finally the wait is over, Money Heist-crazy celebs are set with their plans— when to watch, with whom to watch and who to root for HOPE FOR ALL: Geeta Basra THE SAD END: Sharad Malhotra AITING for the next season of one’s favourite series has never been easy, especially if it is a globally known and loved series like Money Heist. As the last season of the celebrated Spanish series, La Casa de Papel, premiers today, it will tease the fans for another three months, for the Part 2 of Season 5 will be released on December 3. Celebs talk about the big wait, characters they are rooting for in this beginning of the end (Season 5 Part 1) and their preferred binge-watch companion and language since the series is available in English, Hindi, Tamil and Telugu. The fourth season was so gripping and exciting that I wanted to watch the next immediately. It is one series that I have enjoyed immensely. As much as we are excited for it to uncover the story, it’s a scary that it’s nearing towards its end. I will be rooting for Professor as he is the most amazing character. It’s because of him that others were successful in their previous heist. I will be watching it alone since my husband will not be around and we all have waited far too long for the season finale. I am a big fan of the franchise. Through the four seasons, we have witnessed two heists - Royal Mint of Spain and Bank of Spain. At the end of the fourth season, I was sad because of Nairobi’s death. Definitely my favourite character is Professor and I would want him to bring everyone out of danger that they were in earlier. His character is sophisticated and nerdy. I will watch it the English version as that’s my language. Eagerly waiting for the season to unfold. I WANT MORE: Ruhi Singh THE HIGHEST OF HIGH: Harjinder Singh FOR THE FINALE: Shefali Jariwala When they completed Season 4, the first thought that came to my mind was ‘I want more’. I wanted to know how this story would end. Now, that the time has arrived, I really hope that Professor survives. I like the complexity of his character. He is shown as soft and considerate as well as hard and on point. My mother is in town for a few days. I will watch the show with her. She has watched the other seasons and is looking forward to this one. I am going to be binge watching this. It would be hard to wait for December 3 again, then the favourite fan anthem would be, ‘December, September mein kyun nahi aata yaar.’ I was eagerly waiting for Season 5. I will watch it for Tokyo who I find to be the most fierce and vulnerable character of the series. You never know what she will do and when. She is unpredictable. The expectations are way too high and as the Netflix’s Money Heist Fan Anthem predicted, we all believe it will end on ‘the highest of high’. I will be watching it alone as I am shooting. It was just last year that I watched this series on a friend’s suggestion. Then I watched it with my wife and it took me a week to finish all the available seasons but I don’t think I would be waiting for my shooting schedule to finish to watch it with my wife. The first thing that came to my mind when I watched the fourth season was that the season finale would be interesting with all the twists and turns and I couldn’t wait for them to release it soon. I really hope the main lead, Professor, lives. He is my favourite character. I love the way they have written his character. He is someone you would want to root for, although you know what he is doing is not right, but they have made the show in such a way that you want the bad guy to win. I will be watching the series with my husband Parag. We usually try to watch the episodes together at night when both of us are free.
