Kumail Nanjiani's thirst trap photo is getting him some interesting job offers. It's been a weird week for The Eternals star. The actor posted a shirtless selfie on social media earlier in the week to show off his radical body transformation for the Marvel role. Since then, the photos have taken off and gotten a lot more attention than Nanjiani ever expected. For instance, popular adult entertainment site PornHub is now using one of his images to promote the muscular men section of their site. Now, the Silicon Valley actor has just been offered a decent amount of money to go strip and host a night at a popular New York club.
Sapphire Gentleman's Club has offered Kumail Nanjiani $15,000 to host an upcoming event and to strip. Andrew Zarian, the Vice President of Sapphire, wrote an open letter to the actor in an effort to get a response through public channels. As of this writing, Nanjiani has yet to respond to the generous offer, though he could, if he has enough time to take away from The Eternals. You can read part of the letter below.
"With our show debuting soon, and given your newly ripped body, we think you'd be a wonder addition as lead dancer of our all male revue show. I'd like to formally extend you an offer to dance and host at our club on January 19th when we officially debut our male revue show to the masses. I know you've worked way too hard for way too long, and this would be quite the accolade for your growing resume. In return for your "services," we'd compensate you up to $15,000, which you can donate to the charity of your choice."
Even for charity, it seems like a pretty big long shot for Kumail Nanjiani to strip. Yes, he has worked hard, but he's in the Marvel Cinematic Universe now. He's Kingo in The Eternals, which will more than likely turn into multiple roles and will turn into a lot more money. Nanjiani has been working his way up for quite some time now, but he has arrived. His shirtless image is even being used on Pornhub.
Obviously, this is just a promotional stunt, though a pretty good one, on behalf of Sapphire Gentleman's Club. Kumail Nanjiani is still all over the news after revealing his body transformation and even he can't believe what a big deal it has become. The actor seems pretty honored to have his face plastered on PornHub for their muscular men section and never thought that would have happened in a million years.
The Eternals is currently in production and won't hit theaters until the end of 2020. With that being said, we have less than a year to wait to see Kumail Nanjiani as Kingo in the Marvel Cinematic Universe's Phase 4. It's a set of new characters that we have yet to see on the big screen as Marvel looks to a new future, post-Infinity Saga. You can check out Kumail Nanjiani's Instagram post that started it all below. Sapphire also tried to get Kanye West to hold his Sunday Service at the club.
