In this film, the Quantico actress will work with Mindy, best known for her role as Kelly Kapoor in hit sitcom, The Office. Universal Pictures won the rights to the film earlier this week, beating out bids from Legendary, Sony, Netflix, and Amazon Studios. The comedy will be set in America and India, and will tell the story of a big traditional Indian wedding and the ensuing culture clashes. Will it draw inspiration from Priyanka and Nick Jonas’ extravagant wedding?

According to Deadline, the film has been pitched as Crazy Rich Asians meets My Big Fat Greek Wedding. Mindy is set to write and produce the project along with Dan Goor, the co-creator and executive producer of NBC’s Brooklyn Nine-Nine. Not only that, but she also has the option to direct the film. The 39-year-old took to Instagram to share her excitement: “My dream team is making a movie. Can’t wait for this one!”
