Genius writer and actress Mindy Kaling is going to become an even more famiiar face this year, with a role in the Disney movie A Wrinkle In Time and a place alongside the likes of Cate Blanchett and Sanda Bullock in crime caper Ocean’s 8. But The Mindy Project is where she honed her comedic skills, playing the loveable mess that is Dr Mindy Lahiri.


Created by and starring Kaling, The Mindy Project follows a gynaecologist as she negotiates life's challenges, whether that be setting up her own fertility clinic or learning how to eat two pizzas simultaneously. That’s right, not since 30 Rock’s Liz Lemon have we had such a relatable role model – Mindy is stylish, smart and successful, but she’s also JUST LIKE US.


Along the way, our heroine is helped – and deterred – by her eclectic bunch of co-workers, played by some of the finest comedians around, including Chris Messina (Argo), Ike Barinholtz (Bad Neighbours), Adam Pally (Happy Endings) and Xosha Roquemore (Precious). But it’s Mindy’s show – and don’t you forget it. She’s unapologetic about who’s boss in both her professional and personal life, and always speaks her mind, which makes her one of the most meme-able characters in history.


So, if you’re ever unsure which direction to take in life – whether in work, dating or snacking – just ask yourself “What would Mindy do?” and consult these pearls of wisdom she herself follows in the series. And if you haven’t seen the show before, what are you waiting for? The first three series are available to binge on in Box Sets right now. It’s what Mindy would do...
