Canada goes to Hollywood! Mississauga's Maitreyi Ramakrishnan's Instagram shows that she and Mindy Kaling are super close. Their hilarious series Never Have I Ever premieres on Netflix so soon and you'll want to put it on your must-watch list.\nIn April 2019, Kaling tweeted out an announcement about her new show, looking for applicants to play her as a teenager.\nThat got the attention of 17-year-old Ramakrishnan who had a passion to get into the acting industry. After rounds of auditions, she ended up being chosen out of 15,000 other applicants.\nThe Tamil-Canadian actress plays the lead role of Devi, a smart but mischievous high school student who's pretty nerdy but still has a yearning for boys and partying like other teens.\nKaling created the series alongside Lang Fisher and based much of the premise on her own childhood.\nBefore landing this gig, the teen was just a regular girl who grew up in Mississauga and loved visiting Kensington Market and Dundas Square in downtown Toronto.\nShe even has plans to attend the theatre program at York University, though now she's quite a few steps ahead.\nRamakrishnan's Instagram has 45 posts and over 26,000 followers where she has shared her journey into stardom, including some adorable posts dedicated to Kaling.\nIn October, Ramakrishnan wrote "Forever grateful to my two fairy god mothers. 2020 can't come any sooner", referencing the show's two creators, Kaling and Fisher.\nView this post on Instagram Forever grateful to my two fairy god mothers. 2020 can't come any sooner🧚🏻♀️💃🏾 #nhie #neverhaveIever A post shared by Maitreyi Ramakrishnan (@maitreyiramakrishnan) on Oct 13, 2019 at 6:39pm PDT\nThat same day, she shared another snap with Kaling, calling it "A casual family photo".\nView this post on Instagram A casual family photo👩👩👧👧💞 #neverhaveIever #nhie #browngirlcomeup A post shared by Maitreyi Ramakrishnan (@maitreyiramakrishnan) on Oct 13, 2019 at 12:28pm PDT\nIn February, it seems they got even closer as Ramakrishnan wrote, "Ain’t nothing better than working with my mom.

WELL everyone…meet Maitreyi Ramakrishnan! She was cast out of 15,000 people, you guys 😳👏🏾 We feel so much excitement to be bringing this story to life, and a responsibility, too.
