Mindy Kaling isn't too pleased with her brother Vijay Chokal-Ingam after he made a startling confession about his past — he pretended to be African American to get into medical school in 1998!
Vijay, whose family stems from Asian Indian-American descent, found the revelation necessary, as UCLA allegedly wants to make their “affirmative action” policy more difficult. He's even planning to write a book about the experience, titled ‘Almost Black.’

“I love my sister to death,” he told ‘The New York Post’ of Mindy, 35. “She says this will bring shame on the family.”
Vijay went to great lengths to portray an African American, from shaving his “long, Indian eyelashes” to joining the Organization of Black Students.

“I got into medical school because I said I was black,” he wrote on ‘Almostblack.com.’ “The funny thing is I’m not. My plan actually worked. Lucky for you, I never became a doctor.”
The controversial choice helped him land interviews at Harvard and Columbia, and he wound up attending St. Louis University Medical School. He dropped out two years later and went on to attend UCLA Anderson’s MBA program, which he applied to as an Asian Indian-American.
