His character is usually mute when there's a female nearby, but now that he can speak without liquid courage, he's going to get himself in all sorts of trouble.
"He can now talk to women without alcohol, so who knows what he's going to say," Nayyar said Sunday on the Emmy Awards red carpet.

"I'll watch an entire season of stuff on an airplane on my way to India. I use Hulu, Netflix, Apple TV, whatever."
His pre-Emmy ritual, he said, was "showering and putting on a tux and watching some football."
