PRIYANKA CHOPRA TO STAR ALONGSIDE MINDY KALING

Revealing the details of the upcoming Hollywood project, Mindy said that she and Priyanka will be playing cousins in the romantic comedy which will revolve around a big fat Indian wedding. While Mindy will play an Indian-American Bengali, Priyanka will play her first cousin, who was born and brought up in India.

Minday further said, “We’re really proud of it, we show South Asian Americans that are from Southern Indian. Then we show a Muslim Indian girl. Culturally we see how they’re different from each other. The Asian experience is not a monolith. Why would people necessarily know that if they don’t have shows that explain and explore that difference?”
