The Big Bang Theory's Kunal Nayyar is worlds away from Raj in first trailer for new thriller Suspicion

THE Big Bang Theory’s Kunal Nayyar looks worlds away from his role as a goofy astrophysicist in a first-look trailer for the new thriller Suspicion. 

Kunal first became a household name across the globe back in 2007 as he debuted as the nerdy and socially awkward Raj Koothrappali in The Big Bang Theory. 

The 40-year-old is now set to appear alongside Kill Bill actress Uma Thurman in new thriller series Suspicion, which has been given a release date in early 2022.

It’s a very different role for Kunal than fans are used to seeing, with the new footage showing him under thorough investigation.

The eight-part series follows the aftermath of the abduction of a prominent US businesswoman's son – and the British actor looks like a completely new man.

Promising high-stakes tension and intrigue, the series' official synopsis reads: "When the son of a prominent American businesswoman is kidnapped from a New York hotel, the eye of suspicion quickly falls on four seemingly ordinary British citizens who were at the hotel on the night in question.

"As they find themselves in a trans-Atlantic cat and mouse race to evade the combined forces of the National Crime Agency and the FBI to prove their innocence, it becomes apparent that not everyone can be trusted.

"Who is really behind the mysterious abduction, and who is only guilty of being in the wrong place at the wrong time?"
