Bailey recently shared what it was like working with Kaling on ‘The Mindy Project’.
“Working on her show was neat because I had been following her career and was proud to see an Indian woman star on her own show and see it survive two networks,” said Bailey.
“She’s a “boss” in the good sense and quite entertaining. I love everything about the process. Sometimes I wish it would “happen” quicker, but all this is a blessing.”
Kaling recently shared her Airbnb Wishlist according to People Magazine.
“I love luxury,” Kaling says, explaining that each stay on her list is a retreat from her everyday life. “My favorite places need to be nicer than my home.”
“Not to be too mystical, but my astrological sign is Cancer, which means I’m a homebody,” she says. “Homebodies love the comfort and intimacy of an actual home.”
Sheldon Bailey has starred in projects like NCIS, Animal Kingdom, and Game Shakers on Nickelodeon.
