KUNAL NAYYAR DID STRUGGLE WITH BECOMING A HEARTTHROB THOUGH!!
Raj dated a lot of girls over the years, but he never seemed to find the right woman to spend the rest of his life with – partly due to his selective mutism and his exceedingly bashful demeanour. He finally sought his father’s help in the last season of ‘The Big Bang Theory’, asking him to match him up with someone as he became increasingly concerned about ending up alone, especially after Sheldon (Jim Parsons) and Amy’s (Mayim Bialik) wedding. He meets Anu (Rati Gupta), a successful concierge with a no-nonsense attitude. The couple chose to get engaged after an initial argument, but they ended up breaking up in the middle of arranging their wedding. Raj is the only key cast member who doesn’t have a partner by the end of the movie, but he’s come a long way from his shy days and can now strike up a discussion with ladies without having a nervous breakdown.
While this helped him overcome his selective mutism, Raj’s first real heartbreak in ‘The Big Bang Theory’ was the clincher. Raj was naturally saddened when Lucy (Kate Micucci), after developing a real attraction to him, decided to end things with him because she felt too pushed when he wanted to introduce her to his friends. He eventually accepted the reality of their breakup after moping for a period. Raj was able to go on with his life despite the breakup, which taught him that women aren’t all that scary. He grew more confident in himself as a result of that experience, and he began dating more actively again.
The truth is that drinking didn’t help Raj relax when it comes to approaching ladies. His friends were aware of this, as evidenced by ‘The Big Bang Theory’ Season 2 Episode 17 “The Terminator Decoupling”, in which the boys disclosed that alcohol had only a placebo effect on him. For him, it was more of a psychological war than anything else.
So, while he was still unmarried when the comedy concluded, there’s a good chance he’ll find his life partner one day.
