Although the coronavirus pandemic has forced us to stay at home, it has also given me the opportunity to catch up on all the movies and series that I couldn’t watch earlier. Netflix and chill have become my thing and like many others, I have been hooked to ‘Money Heist’. Soon, Nairobi AKA Alba Flores instantly became my favourite.
Well, here’s another reason to be in awe of this wonderfully talented actor. We recently found footages in which Alba was seen speaking fluent Telugu. Yeah, that’s right!
According to Hindustan Times, Alba played the role of a woman from Andhra Pradesh in the Spanish film ‘Vicente Ferrer’ in 2013.

She is such a versatile actress, I’m totally amazed 😩 Can y’all believe that she played such heavy roles right in the start of her career 👀 I mean, if THAT was the start, I can’t imagine what she’ll do in the future, she’s already above the skies right now, and she achieved ALL of this fame and love with side roles 🥺 She is really out there winning millons of hearts and blowing my mind a little more everyday with every second that passes 😭 @albafloresoficial you are UNBELIEVABLE 🙌 The movie is called ‘Vicente Ferrer’ ♥️ @albafloresoficial
Videos of her scenes from the film have been shared on social media. In one of the videos, she was seen wearing a sari and a bindi.
And as expected, her Indian fans fell for her, all over again. Here’s how they reacted.

A friend shared this clip where #albaflores (Nairobi from #MoneyHeist)speaks Telugu. Didn’t believe at first and said it’s a morphed video only to find out I was wrong. This is from a series called Vicente Ferrer! pic.twitter.com/bgYMrM0hYt

It was an absolute delight to watch her speak Telugu so fluently. She is indeed one of the most talented actors. Hope to see more of her.
