Mindy Kaling’s Brother: ‘You Play a Slut on TV’

Vijay Jojo Chokal-Ingam and his famous sister fall out of sorts over her claim that his memoir will “bring shame” on their family

Mindy Kaling‘s brother claims his famous sister “tried to sabotage” his new, self-published book — which serves a harsh criticism of affirmative action — according to Page Six.

“You play a slut on national TV, and you think this [book] will bring shame on the family?” Vijay Jojo Chokal-Ingam said in an interview with the online media outlet, recounting words exchanged with his sibling during an argument.

He claims that Kaling — famous for roles in Disney-Pixar’s “Inside Out,” “The Office” and as the lead in her own sitcom “The Mindy Project” — said the book would “bring shame” on their family.

His memoir, “Almost Black: The True Story of How I Got Into Medical School by Pretending To Be Black,” details just what the title indicates: how Chokal-Ingam allegedly took advantage of an affirmative action loophole by posing as a black student in order to have an easier time getting into medical school.

According to Page Six, Kaling has claimed to have zero involvement with her brother’s plan to expose discrimination against Asian-Americans and whites. Chokal-Ingam, however, told the outlet that she was aware of his scheme the whole time.

Kaling’s brother went on to make other potentially embarrassing claims against the six-time Emmy nominated actress.

He said in the Page Six interview that his sister secretly asked her contacts at Hollywood agency William Morris Endeavor not to represent her ex-boyfriend’s sister, Pulitzer Prize-winning playwright Annie Baker. (Her ex is Benjamin Nugent from the 2016 BBC series “River City.”)

“My sister has engineered similar public and private plots against her many frenemies in Hollywood,” added Chokal-Ingam, who said the two “don’t talk” and that their falling out happened two years ago.

He eventually dropped out of med school, according to the article, and is now a college admissions consultant. “But I don’t recommend anyone pretend they are black,” said Kaling’s brother of his new gig.
