1. Mindy Kaling got mistaken for Malala Yousafzai


In 2014, Mindy went to a V.I.P. after-party for the New Yorker Festival. It was there where she bumped into an old man who mistook her for the young activist. He actually told her: “Congratulations on your Nobel Prize.” And then he went on about how well she had recovered from Taliban gunshots.

Mindy was understandably shocked but she admitted that the whole thing was pretty funny. She said: “Did he really think I’m Malala? And that if I were, I’d be at the Boom Boom Room?”
