A Netflix spokesperson confirmed that the title is for the upcoming series inspired by Kaling’s childhood. “Never Have I Ever” will revolve around main character Devi, who is described as an overachieving high school sophomore who has a short fuse that gets her into difficult situations.
Devi will be played by newcomer Maitreyi Ramakrishnan, who was cast after Kaling put out a tweet for an open casting call for the role in April. Over 15,000 people responded to it. This will be Ramakrishnan’s first on-screen role.
