Could Mindy Lahiri be getting married to someone other than Danny Castellano this season on The Mindy Project? That looks to be the case, if Mindy’s parents have anything to say about it. As first reported by TVInsider, The Big Bang Theory‘s Kunal Nayyar will guest star in Season 4 of The Mindy Project as a potential husband for the hopelessly romantic doctor.

Per TVInsider, Nayyar will play Sendhil, a charming hedge fund manager that Mindy’s parents (the recently cast Ajay Mehta and Sakina Jaffrey) are consider for an arranged marriage to their daughter.

With her latest buddy comedy Sisters — in which she stars with friend and fellow SNL alum Tina Fey — having been recently completed, the void in Poehler’s schedule will likely be filled with the demands of the new Universal Pictures film, which the comedienne is also set to produce.
There aren’t a whole lot of details surrounding the project at the moment but according to Deadline, Poehler will play “a once-promising basketball coach” who deals with all sorts of pressures as she takes on the opportunity to lead an NBA basketball team backed by a somewhat reluctant parent organization. Barinholtz, who broke out as Ivan Dochenko in Danny McBride’s Eastbound & Down, is also said to play an unspecified role in the movie.
