In an era where many people are turning to writing, thanks to the very encouraging industry and all the more people developing the habit of reading, its amazing when the actor that brings to life one's beloved character has another artistic side to him. Today we talk about nobody other than our own Dr. Rajesh Ramayan Kuthrapalli (aka Raj Kuthrapalli) aka Kunal Nayyar. For the uninitiated/ muggle when it comes to what has been the best show on CBS and television in general "The Big Bang Theory" - a story of four nerdy friends, three physicists and an engineer and their interactions with the non science people, especially their beautiful, hot and out of league neighbour Penny. The show was an instant hit amongst student of the sciences (like me) and others alike. It is what you can call an improvement over the very popular in the last decade series "Friends".
Kunal Nayyar brings to life an important, lovable like a caramel, as he is often found quoting, character of Dr. Rajesh Kuthrapalli, who makes the group exotic and contributes to the fact that one-fourth of America is now Indians. Rajesh cannot talk to women (selective mutism) and when he does (women not being around) trying to understand the american way, he is ridiculous and funny. I could never imagine Kunal outside the Raj character, but he has chosen to surprise us again with his writing this time. His book Yes My Accent Is Real And Some other things I haven’t Told You, published by Simon Schuster released on September 15th.
The press release of the book so far has revealed that the book has stories of Kunal's life from childhood to becoming a successful actor in the best television industry in the world.
It reads as "In this revealing book, Kunal Nayyar traces his journey from a nervous little boy in New Delhi who mistakes an awkward first kiss for a sacred commitment, gets nosebleeds chugging Coca-Cola to impress the other students at his all-boys school to the confident guy on the set of one of television's most-watched shows who one day eve gets to kiss the woman of his childhood dreams: Winnie Cooper from The Wonder Years. Throughout, Kunal introduces us to the people who helped him grow, chief among them his slick moustachioed father. From his father, Kunal learned the most important lessons of life: treat a beggar as you would a king.
There are two sides to every story. This coming-of-age story about a young man trying to find his place in between cultures, growing into himself as a person and a performer, and of the many embarrassing incidents that somehow miraculously prepared him to land the role that would make his career.
Yes, My Accent Is Real shares untold stories of Nayyar’s life, collection of humorous, autobiographical essays."
