Mindy Kaling, Priyanka Chopra team up for wedding comedy

‘Quantico’ star Priyanka Chopra Jonas and Indian-origin actress Mindy Kaling will team up for a new film, based on a big fat Indian wedding.

Universal Pictures is developing the film after winning an auction for a pitch by Kaling, Chopra Jonas and TV producer Dan Goor.

Kaling, who will write the screenplay with Goor, is attached to star alongside Chopra Jonas and will potentially direct the film.

Details of the pitch are being kept under wraps other than being described as ‘Crazy Rich Asians’ meets ‘My Big Fat Greek Wedding’. It is likely to revolve around the culture clashes at a big wedding in India.
