With the show on its ninth season, the stars of  “The Big Bang Theory” have already gained fame and admiration from millions of viewers across the world. Such status can be overwhelming but experienced actor Matt LeBlanc gave Kunal Nayyar some useful advice.

Nayyar, who plays Raj Koothrapali in the series, revealed that he is a huge fan of “Friends” when he was interviewed last weekend during the Screen Actors Guild awards. He said that the sitcom is his “favorite” and that the cast are the “best.”

The American Indian actor also shared the nuggets of wisdom he got from LeBlanc. “He told me that the journey is crazy, the journey is long, and everybody’s going to want something from you, but just keep your sanity and stay grounded,” he related.

In the interview, Nayyar also gave fans an insight about Raj and Emily’s relationship status. During the last episode of the show, the lovebirds seemed to be having trouble in paradise making the viewers doubt if they are really meant for each other.

The actor threw in more gasoline into that fire when he said that “there may be some other people in the mix.” However, this doesn’t mean that Raj is going to have another girlfriend. He may be checking out another girl but Nayyar assured fans that his character and Emily will “work through it.”

Who is this girl that will put a strain on Raj and Emily’s relationship? Fans will find out in the upcoming episode 14 entitled “The Meemaw Materialization” which will air on Thursday, February 4.

According to the episode’s synopsis, Raj will meet “a new girl at the comic book store who makes him question his relationship with Emily.”

In a separate interview, Mayim Bialik (Amy) highlighted that the upcoming episode is going to be a “funny” one.
