Mindy Kaling and Priyanka Chopra recently revealed that they are collaborating for an upcoming wedding comedy film. Kaling has now spoken to IANS about working with Priyanka. Kaling has called Priyanka Chopra very smart and a wonderful person to work with.
She said, "Priyanka is so smart, it's been wonderful working with her." She further added, "I just finished the script. The movie takes place in New York and India, and she and I have such a funny dynamic in it, I can't wait to make it."
The upcoming film is set around a big fat Indian wedding. Very little is known about the film's story but it is rumoured to focus on the cultural differences in any Indian family. Meanwhile Kaling is spending all her time in lockdown with her friends and family. She said, "I'm so lucky because my family is healthy. Every day I feel blessed that the people who are going to work (healthcare and essential workers) are sacrificing for everyone else. For me, it's been a lot of writing, spending time with my daughter and failed cooking experiments."
Kaling previously produced Netflix's Never Have I Ever. The show tells the story of a South Indian family as they deal with personal issues and high school drama. The show quickly became a fan favourite. Never Have I Ever stars Maitreyi Ramakrishnan, Poorna Jagannathan and Richa Moorjani leading the cast. The show is getting a new season soon. No information about the second season of Never Have I Ever has yet come out on the internet.
