Most of the world first got to know Mindy Kaling on the sitcom "The Office." She played Kelly Rajanigandha Kapoor on the sitcom, and was first introduced in the second episode of the show's first season, "Diversity Day." In that episode, she famously slapped boss Michael Scott across the face. Kaling worked with longtime friend - a short-lived romantic partner B.J. Novak as a writer on the show. Novak played Ryan Howard on the show in a role that mirrored their real-life relationship.
