"I'm a tiny dainty woman"

Confidence according to The Mindy Project’s Mindy Lahiri

By Jennifer Perry on March 28, 2016

There is a lot to love about The Mindy Project’s main character, Mindy Lahiri, but if we had to choose one thing it would be her confidence. The successful OB/GYN doesn’t shy away from the opportunity to let others know how smart, successful or “dainty” she is, and she shuts down anyone who feels otherwise. What’s even more amazing is that the show’s creator, Mindy Kaling, exudes the same assurance when she’s off-screen. It’s one reason why we’re excited to have the multi-hyphenate Hollywood star on stage during Women in the World’s 7th Annual Summit in New York City. If you can’t join us in person, you can livestream her full interview from our site. Until then, check out the video above for some of her character’s most confident quips.
