Nayyar is teaming up with Atria Books to pen a not-yet-titled collection of autobiographical essays that will focus on his early life growing up in India, as well as his journey to becoming an actor, Entertainment Weekly confirms.
“I was born in London and brought up in New Delhi, India. I’ve cleaned toilets in Portland, been held up for 76 cents in Philadelphia, and my first acting job on TV was playing a terrorist,” Nayyar said in a press release. “Also my father thinks he’s James Bond and I once played a ‘Star Wars’ board game for 36 straight hours. Then I married Miss India. So, why not write a book? It’s the logical next step. Obviously.”
Nayyar’s memoir is expected to be released in 2015.
