Kumail Nanjiani is one of those stars who people are weirdly attracted to. And believe me, it’s not because he’s unattractive. Kumail is by no means ugly. But I say weirdly because he seems like an interesting guy you go on a date with and makes you laugh the whole time. Are you attracted to him solely because of his good looks? No. It’s probably because you’ll have a pretty good time with him.
It’s basically like having a crush on John Mulaney, Jason Segel or Jason Sudeikis. Three men who are pretty average in the looks department but their humor elevates them to that crush-worthy status.
Well my friend, since yesterday, there is nothing weird about being attracted to Kumail Nanjiani anymore. The comedian has completely obliterated any sort of weirdness you might be feeling about crushing on him because he is officially one hell of an eye candy. And guess what? That man himself posted the pics to prove it on his official Instagram profile. Check out his “thirsty shirtless” photos below:

I never thought I’d be one of those people who would post a thirsty shirtless, but I’ve worked way too hard for way too long so here we are. You either die a hero, or you live long enough to see yourself become the villain. I found out a year ago I was going to be in Marvel’s Eternals and decided I wanted to transform how I looked. I would not have been able to do this if I didn’t have a full year with the best trainers and nutritionists paid for by the biggest studio in the world. I’m glad I look like this, but I also understand why I never did before. It would have been impossible without these resources and time. So big thanks to @grantrobertsfit who started working with me at the beginning of the year and made me understand true physical pain for months and months. Then, once we started shooting, a massive thanks to @davidhigginslondon and his team (@ellispartridge, @thebeardypt, @tomcheesemanfitness) for training me almost every day and making me strong, limber and injury free. I can almost touch my toes now. (And thank you for forcing me to do cheat meals David.) Matthews Street Catering for their delicious and healthy meals. And finally, the biggest thanks goes to @emilyvgordon for putting up with me complaining and talking about only working out and dieting for the last year. I promise I’ll be interesting again some day. #thirstyshirtless (Photo by @markupson.) (edit: I left off one very important person: @lancecallahan who trained me for 6 years and helped me build the foundation I could use to do this. Thank you!)
Wowza. Forget about Chris Pratt’s Marvel transformation. Kumail is officially Marvel’s best project to date. And the man completely acknowledges it. In the caption, the actor reveals that his new physique is credited to the studio’s investment on him. “I would not have been able to do this if I didn’t have a full year with the best trainers and nutritionists paid for by the biggest studio in the world,” he wrote.
Here are some hilarious reactions to Kumail’s latest post:
