Income Source of Kunal Nayyar 

As for his salary, we can say that in 2015, the popular American business magazine (Forbes) named Kunal as the third guy on its list of the world's highest-paid TV actors. Nayyar's earnings then stood at $20 million. Two years later (in 2017), Forbes again listed Kunal as one of the world's most paid television actors. This time, it was reported that Kunal and other major show casts (Jim Parsons, Johnny Galecki, Kaley Cuoco, and Simon Helberg) earned $1 million per episode and $24 million per show season.

Nevertheless, due to the bond that the casts developed among themselves, they decided to take a $100,000 pay cut for each episode to raise Melissa Rauch's and Mayim Bialik's salaries.

Kunal has purchased this 4,000 sqft Hollywood Hills home in 2012 for $2.85 million.
