20 South Asian Actors to Watch on Television Right Now

Danny continues to put pressure on Mindy to have another baby. Mindy brings it up to Morgan and says she doesn’t want to bring it up before the wedding.

Mindy Lahiri Rethinks Relationship With Danny Castellano

It’s been four episodes since we last saw Dr. Danny Castellano, and it’s become unbearably apparent to everyone in Mindy’s life. Mindy is unable to stop talking about Danny, and everyone is tired of listening.

Mindy Lahiri Decides Whether or Not to Send Baby Leo to Private School Hilarity Ensues
