Mindy Kaling, the renowned director of the well-known Netflix teenage drama “Never Have I Ever,” has come up with an open revelation about her true inspiration. After a series of exclusive confessions about her ‘pregnancy’ during lock down, this is her remarkable life changing heart to heart announcement.
Recently, Mindy Kaling took to her Instagram account to glorify that true spirit who inspired her to choose the path of film making as her career. Its none other than Gina Prince-Bythewood, who is known for directing the films Love & Basketball (2000), The Secret Life of Bees (2008), Beyond the Lights (2014), and The Old Guard (2020).
“She’s an actor’s dream,” says Mindy Kaling!
“@gpbmadeit has been a huge inspiration for me, and I’m honored she’s my #FemaleFilmmaker. She wrote on A Different World, one of my favorite sitcoms growing up, and then later wrote and directed Love & Basketball, an iconic movie! It is a romantic sports drama that I watch at least once a year. Later she made Beyond the Lights, and most recently, the hit Netflix action movie, The Old Guard. As a writer I’m inspired by how she can write in any genre (Romantic drama! Comedy! Action!), and as a director, she’s an actor’s dream. I love her, and can’t wait to see what she does next. Fingers crossed, even work with her one day,” posted Mindy Kaling.
Kaling also expressed her wish to work with Gina, a dream that has been with her for over a period of time.
Kaling was recently nominated for a Prime time Emmy Award for Outstanding Writing in a Comedy Series and five times for Outstanding Comedy Series. Kaling gained wider attention for creating, producing and starring in the Fox comedy series The Mindy Project (2012–2017). She created the NBC sitcom Champions (2018), also appearing in five episodes, the Hulu miniseries Four Weddings and a Funeral (2019), and the Netflix comedy-drama series Never Have I Ever (2020).
