Kunal Nayyar praises India for recently passing a pro-LGBT while chatting with Ellen DeGeneres on Monday’s instalment of the show.

Nayyar, 37, who is best known for playing Rajesh on “The Big Bang Theory”, talks to DeGeneres about the Supreme Court re-thinking the ban on consensual gay sex.

He explains, “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.

“It never made sense to me actually, because no one can tell you who to love, right?”

Nayyar also speaks about filming the final season of “The Big Bang Theory”.

He says of the sitcom, which will end after its current, 12th 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.

“It’s given me all the blessings in the world.”
