The 31-year-old, who plays Raj Koothrappali in the American sitcom, was looked after by staff at Diverse Talent Group (DTG) when he landed the role in 2007 and has paid a percentage of his wages in commission in subsequent years.
However, in a suit filed at County Superior Court here last week, lawyers for the company claim Nayyar stopped making payments from September last year, reports tmz.com.
DTG says that the actor owns them 62,500 pounds. Nayyar's representative was not available to comment on the same.
