Gobi Nadir
Occupation: Restaurant Owner
First appearance: "Introduction to Film"
Portrayer: Iqbal Theba

Gubi Nadir is Abed's father, with whom Abed has a rather difficult relationship. While Mr. Nadir wants Abed to take over the family's falafel restaurant, Abed plans to become a film director. Abed also thinks Gubi blames him for his mother (who hasn't been seen, but it's implied she was Polish-American) leaving them. Gubi is a very protective yet argumentative father, but accepts the fact that his son needs to use film to express himself. He later appears on Family Day and disapproves of the lenient way in which Shirley raises her boys.
