But her journey didn’t begin just there, as straight after graduation the aspiring actress and her fellow roommate at the time turned a “running joke” into an actual project…

Yes, we’re talking about the play Matt & Ben, which consequently gained a huge amount of popularity, after both Kaling and college friend Brenda Withers, portrayed Matt Damon and Ben Affleck.

The comedy skit went on to receive an award at the New York International Fringe Festival and even ran a successful two-year run Off-Broadway.

Just after the success of Matt & Ben, producer Greg Daniels  “recruited” Kaling in 2004 to write for an American version of the mockumentary-style TV comedy, The Office…

Clearly, not…

“We were never really dating, we were never really not dating. We didn’t know. No one knew. All you’d know for sure as that you’d always find one of us next to the other, even if we weren’t getting along,” said the actress.

But fans were quick to notice the irony…

“If that’s what is going to be titillating to people, I’ll take it,” she said.

Shedding light on the matter, the actress revealed she wants privacy when it comes to disclosing information about her kids…

“I want them to be old enough to talk to me about it and [tell me] how they want me to talk about it,” she said.

“I’m the only parent my kids have… I think I err on the side of super cautious so that there are fewer things that they can potentially be mad at me about down the line,” confessed the actress.
