The season four finale of The Big Bang Theory had every in shock, after Penny and Raj had a little too much to drink and ended up in bed together. However, it was not only the audience who were surprised by the scenes. Kunal Nayyar, who plays Raj in The Big Bang Theory, also confessed his shock.
Kunal explained, "It was a surprise to me. There was nothing during the season that indicated that's where the story was heading." He also admitted that he cannot see a long term future for the couple. "It would be very difficult for Penny and Raj to have a future because he doesn't talk to women, and because of the friendship of the four guys, as well as Penny's loyalty to the guys.”
Nayyar added, "It's obvious they both felt, at least he at some level, like that was a mistake. So it'll be interesting to see what happens. I hope that Leonard [Johnny Galecki] and Raj stay friends." The Big Bang Theory returns for its fifth season on September 22 on CBS.
