'The Big Bang Theory' star Kunal Nayyar praised India for striking down an anti-LGBT law recently and said he couldn't be happier over the decision.

While talking to Ellen DeGeneres on her show, the actor, who was born in England but raised in India's capital New Delhi, said that what made him happier about the nation’s historic decision to decriminalize homosexuality was that it coincided with his trip to India. 



 

“I grew up in New Delhi and I went to an all-boys school. I remember knowing some people that were in the closet because they did not have an avenue to come out and I kept thinking how stupid it is that the government decides to choose who you can love," he explained. "It never made sense to me actually, because no one can tell you who to love, right?” he added. 

Apart from sharing his joy about the news, he even spoke about the filming of TBBT's final season. "It’s going to be OK. It’s bittersweet. I’m still trying to process all of it because it’s been such a big part of my life obviously," he continued. "It’s going to be OK. It’s bittersweet. I’m still trying to process all of it because it’s been such a big part of my life obviously. Life comes full circle, man,” he said. He even revealed that the finale will be shot on April 30, 2019, which happens to be his birthday. 

Later in the show, he even spoke about how he had to sport a mustache for his forthcoming movie, 'Think Like a Dog'. The movie was shot in New Orleans over the course of summer. Though he posted a picture of him sporting the stache on Instagram, he chose not to keep it on after the movie. All because he was unrecognizable to his fans.
