Mindy Kalings I have never has become a hit, and along with the show, stars like Richa Moorjani, who plays Devi’s cousin Kamala, have it too. There were many things in season one that spoke to me personally as an Indian, and I know I wasn’t the only South Asian woman looking forward to finally seeing some sort of representation of our culture on TV.
