Exclusive: Mindy Kaling Reveals What It’s Really Like Working with Priyanka Chopra

In case you missed it, two of our favorites—Mindy Kaling and Priyanka Chopra—are teaming up to make a brand-new movie. So, when we sat down with Kaling to chat all about her partnership with joy (the super cute and affordable millennial-friendly razor collection), we just had to inquire about their upcoming project.

“I’m writing a movie for Priyanka Chopra and me to start in that she’s producing and I’m also producing,” Kaling explained. “I’m still very early in the stages of but that’s a comedy that takes place in India. It’ll be fun.” We have to agree: The movie is said to be a comedy based on an Indian wedding (a thing Chopra knows a thing or two about).

When it came down to spilling the tea about what it’s like working with the 36-year-old Isn’t It Romantic star, Kaling had plenty of things to say about her new work wife. 

“Our relationship has kind of just begun professionally, but she’s incredibly smart and fun and glamorous—very glamorous,” Kaling shared. “We just love a lot of the same things. I really admire her.”

The 40-year-old Late Night star went on to detail exactly how Chopra’s work ethic continues to amaze her: “I think I work hard, and she is just killing it. I feel like she’s in a different city every day, flying for work and for her husband’s family and now her family. It’s just really inspiring to be around her,” she said.

We honestly can’t wait to see this movie. But for now, we’ll just watch Late Night again.
