The Eternals star Kumail Nanjiani has shared a weird story of how his dad reacted after his shredded body pictures went viral.
Late last year, Kumail Nanjiani shared a photo of his incredible body transformation which he achieved for Marvel’s upcoming The Eternals. Nanjiani’s pictures immediately went viral and became the talk of the town. In fact, even Nanjiani’s dad thought his son’s body transformations were worth commemorating and decided to get socks with his son’s body printed on them. Speaking with Variety, The Eternals star revealed the weird story of how his dad tried to show how proud he was of him.
It’s the only time they’ve said vocally that they’re proud of me. It’s the only time! My dad got socks with my shirtless body on it. I had aunts texting me like, ‘We’re so proud of you! You’ve worked so hard!’

The Eternals star continued by discussing how getting and maintaining his new body has been tons of hard work.
“The hard thing is, it’s not like a video game where you just hit save and then it’s done. It’s every day. You have to keep doing it! What have I gotten myself into?”
What Kumail Nanjiani has done with his body is nothing short of impressive and it’s great that this interview highlights just how playful his dad is with the whole ordeal. Nanjiani’s dad isn’t the only one who is having fun with the body transformation as even an adult website decided to give The Eternals star 10 years worth of premium content. All in all, Nanjiani seems to be having a blast with how his new body is being received by fans.
