You probably recognize Kunal Nayyar as The Big Bang Theory’s Raj, an astrophysicist drawn to dating problems, but soon enough, Nayyar will be able to put another title under his name: published author.
EW has confirmed that Nayyar will join Atria Books to create a not-yet-titled collection of humorous autobiographical essays with a focus on his experiences growing up in India and his journey to becoming an actor.
“I was born in London and brought up in New Delhi, India. I’ve cleaned toilets in Portland, been held up for 76 cents in Philadelphia, and my first acting job on TV was playing a terrorist,” Nayyar said in a press release. “Also my father thinks he’s James Bond and I once played a Star Wars board game for 36 straight hours. Then I married Miss India. So, why not write a book? It’s the logical next step. Obviously.”
The memoir is expected to hit shelves in 2015.
