On August 3, 2022, the third season of “Never Have I Ever” was released on Netflix.

The main focus of the show is Devi Vishwakumar (Maitreyi Ramakrishnan), a high school student struggling with her father’s loss, adolescent social pressures, and the thrill (and embarrassment) of teenage crushes.

The series, created by Mindy Kaling, has been hailed by critics and is regarded as one of the best teen comedies on the platform.

In the show, Ramakrishnan is the main character, although her mother Nalina, played by Poorna Jagannathan, steals the show. Along with Devi, the character Nalina has grown throughout the course of the play.

Jagannathan’s character balances her dermatologist career with being a single parent to a hormonal adolescent. While also figuring out how to be a more tender and understanding figure in Devi’s life.

The 49-years-old actress has acted in a number of motion pictures and television programs, such as “Gypsy,” “The Night Of,” and “Big Little Lies.”

Poorna Jagannathan: Awkward audition she once did with Ryan Gosling

Jagannathan shared with The Hollywood Reporter about an awkward incident she encountered while auditioning with Ryan Gosling for a project.

She began,

“For whatever reason, this was before the Me Too movement, they chose a scene when we’re making out and it’s a part of an orgy,”

Jagannathan elaborated,

“You know, you have to go through so many levels and I was totally with it, I was totally on it. I had my grip on it (until) he started making out with me and I just melted and started giggling.”

The ‘Never Have I Ever’ singer then laughed and remarked,

“I was not allowed into that cast office for many, many years,” 

That would undoubtedly be embarrassing for anyone to witness. We’re interested in Gosling’s response.
