Indian American dancer, actress and pageant queen Richa Shukla, who is rapidly racking up a list of film and TV credits, appeared as “Geeta” on the Thanksgiving-themed Nov. 20 episode of the FOX comedy “The Mindy Project.” 

The show was created by, and stars, Mindy Kaling, one of the most prominent Indian Americans in American entertainment.

Geeta, a bombshell in a tight purple dress, is the “younger, hotter Indian girlfriend” of Dennis (Ed Helms), a man whom Mindy had rejected on a blind date — but seeing him with Geeta at a Thanksgiving get-together makes Mindy rethink her original impression of him.

This episode and all other episodes of “The Mindy Project” will be available for viewing online at eight days after its air date.
