    The film will revolve around a sumptuously extravagant wedding in India and the cultural clashes associated with it. It is slated to be filmed in India and the US. Priyanka Chopra does have some ‘vivacious real life’ experience with extravagant weddings and hence has the potential to bring this to ‘life’ with her ‘reel’ version.

    New Delhi (Sputnik) — In a tightly contested auction, Universal Studios has won the rights to a film project involving a ‘big fat Indian wedding' starring Mindy Kaling and Priyanka Chopra; the still-untitled comedy will take place in India as well as America.

    Priyanka announced the movie on her Instagram page. Talking about the project, she said "We are about to show you what it means to be modern, global, and Indian. See you at the cinema!"

    The comedy will be written by Mindy Kaling and Brooklyn Nine-Nine creator Dan Goor. "Two women with a passion for telling good stories, just got the green light to THEIR story THEIR way. So proud of this incredible partnership with @mindykaling and #dangoor!", Priyanka's post read. 

    Kaling has already written a miniseries remake of the 1994 comedy Four Weddings And A Funeral, which is expected to be aired on Hulu on 31 July later this year.

    Goor said of the project that he was going to work with amazing women despite not knowing how to tuck his shirt in. He does know a bit about Indian weddings, though; he married Indian-American Purvi Shah in 2003.

    ​Kaling will write for the film along with Dan Goor. Kaling may also direct the project, reported Deadline. The producers for the film will be Dan Goor, Kaling's Kaling International, Priyanka Chopra's Purple Pebble Pictures and 3Arts' Howard Klein.
