What do you get when you combine two powerhouse women together in one comedy? A win waiting to happen. Such is the case with Priyanka Chopra Jonas and Mindy Kaling’s forthcoming Indian wedding comedy.
When PureWow chatted with Chopra Jonas about her role selecting the Pilot Pen 2018 G2 Overachievers Grant, we couldn’t help but ask for an update on the project and what it’s been like working with Kaling.
Chopra Jonas, 37, explained, “We’ve just started the writing process, but she’s incredible and someone I’ve always looked up to. As an Indian working in America, I think she’s so supremely talented and hysterically funny and is just a great girl.”
The Quantico star went on to explain that the comedy feels important on a deeper level. “Collaborating with [Kaling] is something I’m so excited about because this will be an all Indian, all Asian star cast and I feel like that’s also something I’m really proud of, creating opportunities for South Asian actors that work in a mainstream capacity. As a producer and as someone in the movie, it’s really something I’m looking forward to. But it’s going to be next year because we just started writing,” she said.
