Kunal Nayyar on The Big Bang Theory Finale: WHOA!

by at . Comments

Kunal Nayyar is as shocked as you are.

The Big Bang Theory star, whose character of Raj did the deed with Penny on that sitcom's fourth season finale, said at CTV’s 2011-12 Fall launch this week that he didn't see the development coming.

Raj and Penny?!?

“I was quite surprised when that happened,” said Nayyar, who spoke to TV Fanatic earlier this year. “There was no indication during the season that we were leading up to that."

Does he know where things will go now between Raj and Penny? Nope. But he has hopes.

"To be honest, my first instinct to what happened is that perhaps Raj should try to apologize to Leonard and rebuild that friendship first. But on the other hand, it would be pretty cool to date Penny, too.”

What do you think Renny should do next?

I am very fond of all cast of broadband show but especially I like Raj, the way he plays. Tell me is he a gay in real life?
Thank you

@Mar She's a slut for sleeping with one of her ex's best friends, not to mention her ex who happens to be her neighbour. To add to that, she slept with her ex's best friends, when she was still in love with her EX.


I think like lisa, i hope the guys making the show say all finale episode was a sheldon dream or something like that.


so Raj at first was in love with bernadette and had no problem to steal her from his best friend who by the way may have feelings for in his gay side, then sleeps with the ex of his other best friend and still penny is a the slut??? anyway i wish the show was like season 1, penny and the boys and especially leonard and sheldon , not that i don't like the addition of the girls, but things went wrong at some point. at the very least if penny was about to sleep with another member of the gang i would like to be bith sheldon


Why would Raj have to apologize? Leonard slept with his sister in *his* bed first against Raj' wishes.


Penny / Raj sex? Makes me want to vomit. Why they have to go and ruin a perfectly good show is beyond me. If they don't make this go away I'll never watch another episode. And they can't do it jut by making Raj apologize. If that happens and Leonard accepts it, then Leonard is just a giant loser with a friend who is a giant douchebag. I have no interest in watching a show with that level of interpersonal relationship conflict. The first episode of season 5 will have to explain the situation with them never actually having sex or I'm out.


OMFG Raj & penny! WTF - interesting tho, really want to see this episode now! always loved Sheldon/Penny and Leonard/Penny but i LOVE Raj. this show is hilarious and such great writing, it's hard to believe two and a half men which has totally gone down the drain is related.


If you rewatch the season, you'll note that there was actually quite a lot of Penny/Raj interaction, it was just downplayed.


@Lc You call her that because she slept with a guy she's known for 4 years? Were you born in the Middle ages?


I'm done with this show. It used to be a Thursday night ritual, but not in the future. Penny is officially a slut.

TBBT Quotes

Penny: Here's a question-- as an alien pretending to be human, are you planning to engage in any post-prom mating rituals with Amy?
Sheldon: There are post-prom mating rituals?
Penny: Not always. Unless your date drives a van with an air mattress, then always.
Sheldon: Well, if it's part of the prom experience, then I'm open to it.
Penny: You're kidding.
Sheldon: I may be an alien, but I have urges.If Amy wants to copulate by firing her eggs into space, well, then, I will happily catch them with the reproductive sac on my upper flermin. I'm not the best at reading facial cues, but I can see that you're a little turned on.

Raj: Well, to paraphrase Shakespeare: It's better to have loved and lost than to stay home every night and download increasingly shameful pornography.
Penny: Oh... you poor baby.
Raj: What's wrong with me, Penny?
Penny: Nothing, nothing. You know, if we weren't friends - and you hadn't brought up that creepy pornography story - I'd be on you like the speed of light squared on matter to make energy.
Raj: Hey, you totally got that right. E = MC squared.
Penny: I listen. I have no idea what it means, but I listen.
