‘Big Bang Theory’ nerd Kunal Nayyar’s NYC home asks $2.8M

The real-life Raj Koothrappali’s Manhattan apartment is up for grabs.

Kunal Nayyar — the 42-year-old English actor best known for playing the bromantic astrophysicist on CBS’s “The Big Bang Theory” — and his wife, the model Neha Kapur, are selling their relatively humble NoMad apartment. 

The Fifth Avenue penthouse is listed for $2.8 million with Sotheby’s International Realty. 

“The owners bought the apartment when Kunal was here to act in a play,” agent J. Eric Becker, who holds the listing with fellow Sotheby’s agent Alison Glestein, told The Post of the property.

His hit television show, meanwhile, ran from 2007 to 2019.

The one-bedroom duplex has two bathrooms and a 418-square-foot landscaped terrace that makes for “an urban oasis” amid the city’s manic bustle, Becker added.  

Located on the top floor of the 117-year-old, 13-story Grand Madison — once the Brunswick Hotel — the unit is thoroughly modern, but the facade of the landmarked building still oozes Renaissance revival-style charm. 

On the lower level there’s a modest foyer and the first of the two bathrooms, a “bonus room” the floorplan suggests could serve as a den or guest bedroom, and the sprawling living room — in a corner of which is the kitchen that’s outfitted with Viking appliances and a Bosch dishwasher.

Upstairs is the bedroom, which has an ensuite marbled bath and two closets, and direct access to the sprawling roof deck. 

There’s also an in-unit washer/dryer and central air.

In terms of building amenities, there’s a fitness room, a 24-hour doorman, an in-house dry cleaner and tailor, housekeeping and a full-time superintendent. 

Nayyar, who is a self-described actual nerd off air as well as on, and hails from New Delhi, India, has also voiced various animated characters, including on a Nickelodeon sitcom and in the “Ice Age” and “Trolls” franchises. 

His wife Neha, 39, was also born in New Delhi and is a beauty queen who has represented India at the Miss Universe pageant.
