Comedian-actor Kumail Nanjiani and his wife, Emily V. Gordon, had never written a movie before, when they decided to try and tell the basically true story of how budding romance was thrown for a loop when she was place in a medically-induced coma (the perfect plot for a romantic comedy). Their film, “The Big Sick,” proved to be a critical success, and has now earned them an Academy Award nomination for Best Original Screenplay. Lesley Stahl of “60 Minutes” meets with Nanjiani and Gordon to find out how telling the story of their lives has turned their lives upside-down.
