Raj from The Big Bang Theory will be on hand to geek out with fans at the MCM London Comic Con .

Actor Kunal Nayyar has been announced as one of the star guests at the event and will be meeting and greeting at the Excel on Saturday, May 28.

He’ll be taking time out from appearing with Jesse Eisenberg at Trafalgar Studios where the pair appear in Eisenberg’s new comedy which opens the night before, May 27.

Most will be familiar with Raj, the socially awkward astrophysicist from New Dehli, whose inability to speak to women while sober was a theme of the hit sitcom, with many finding him adorable until he managed to get over his mutism at the end of season six.

As well as starring in The Big Bang Theory, Kunal has voiced Vijay in Nickelodeon carton Sanjay and Craig, and Gupta in animated comedy film Ice Age: Continental Drift.
