How A Medically Induced Coma Led To Love, Marriage And ‘The Big Sick’

It sounds like something dreamed up by a team of romantic comedy writers: A Pakistani-American comic falls in love with an American graduate student, but because of cultural pressures from his family, he is forced to keep his relationship a secret. It’s only when she becomes mysteriously ill and is put into a medically induced coma that he decides to tell his family about the woman he loves.

That’s the plot of the new film The Big Sick, but it’s also how the film’s co-writers, Kumail Nanjiani and Emily V. Gordon met and fell in love in real life.

Nanjiani, who plays himself in the film, says the days Gordon spent in a coma were pivotal to their relationship. “This sounds like a movie moment, but it really, really isn’t. I remember seeing her laying there in the coma for the first time and I remember having the thought, If she comes out of this, I’m going to marry her.”

Gordon did come out of the coma, and she and Nanjiani married three months later. Though their story ended happily, Gordon (played in the film by Zoe Kazan) says both she and Nanjiani were careful about “not writing anything that felt disrespectful or off-base or off-color” for the screen adaptation of their story.

“Because we had been through it … we knew the emotional truth of what happened,” she says. “And we knew that we didn’t want to disrespect what actually happened and the seriousness of being in a medically induced coma.”
