Ever since its announcement in April, the wedding comedy that sees Priyanka Chopra Jonas and Mindy Kaling join forces, has generated tremendous buzz. After all, it is a moment of pride for Indians globally as the two most prominent faces of Indian origin unite for the project.

Even as Kaling and Dan Goor—the co-creator and executive producer of Brooklyn Nine-Nine—will write the comedy, Chopra reveals that they did not have to look too far for inspiration. The actor explains that the idea of the project took root as she shared her own wedding plans with Kaling. "We met for lunch and amidst all the random chatter, we spoke about my wedding and her connect with India. It instantly became a concept that could be turned into an interesting project for us to work on. In some ways, the film is inspired by my own wedding," says Chopra.

To be shot across the US and India, the buddy comedy is likely to roll next year. "Mindy and Dan Goor have just begun writing the script. It will be a while before it is approved. We will start shopping for it in the latter half of next year," adds Chopra, who will co-produce and act in the movie.
