Kunal Nayyar has admitted that he was surprised by the season finale of The Big Bang Theory.
In the episode, Nayyar's character Raj ended up getting together with Penny (Kaley Cuoco).
"It was a surprise to me," Nayyar told The Hollywood Reporter. "There was nothing during the season that indicated that's where the story was heading."
Nayyar added that he is not sure whether the romance will continue in the new season.
"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," he said. "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."
