Maitreyi Ramakrishnan‘s portrayal of ‘Devi Vishwakumar‘ in Netflix’s teen series ‘Never Have I Ever‘ has been marked as one of the best performances of 2020 by TV GUIDE, and well-known comedian and actor Mindy Kaling could not be indifferent to that achievement.
On November 5, Kaling, who secretly welcomed her second baby a few months ago, released through her verified Instagram account a screenshot of the related news published on TV GUIDE, and wrote a caption that the news made her tear up a little. She continued:
“It makes me so happy when @maitreyiramakrishnan gets this kind of recognition because, besides being insanely talented, she’s just such a good kid. She works hard, is respectful of adults, and loves her family so much (her relationship with her real life mom Kiruthiha is #goals).”
Kaling went on saying by expressing that Ramakrishnan is an ambitious activist, who really cares about “those less fortunate than her” and using her power and social media platforms to help with them. She concluded her message by congratulating her.
Following the post the young actor, Ramakrishnan, jumped into the comment section and said she is totally speechless.
This is not the only post Kaling shared to praise her young fellow. A few weeks ago, when ‘Never Have I Ever’ received the People Choice Comedy Show Award, ‘The Office’ alum went to Instagram to express her excitement regarding the news. At that time, as the creator of the series, she wrote:
