In what is almost certainly a contrived plot to promote his book, Mindy Kaling's brother, Vijay Jojo Chockal-Ingam, gave the New York Post some extremely nasty quotes about his more successful sister.
"She tried to sabotage the book, and that's not acceptable," said Chokal-Ingam. This is apparently in reference to a Kaling quote, paradoxically featured on the cover of the memoir, that says, "This book will bring shame on our family."
Chockal-Ingam told the Post that he reached out to his sister to say, "You play a slut on national TV, and you think this [book] will bring shame on the family?"
In The Mindy Project, Kaling plays a gynecologist who also sometimes goes on dates.
Chockal-Ingam's book, "Almost Black: The True Story of How I Got Into Medical School by Pretending To Be Black," details a scam he ran to take advantage of affirmative action.
In his comments to the New York Post, Chockal-Ingam also attacked his sister for trying to deny her ex-boyfriend's sister from getting professional representation. "My sister has engineered similar public and private plots against her many frenemies in Hollywood," he said.
Here's looking forward to the unauthorized biography of Mindy Kaling, as told by her obnoxious brother, coming to bookshelves way too soon.
