'You play a sl*t on national TV': Mindy Kaling's brother launches horror attack on star, claiming she 'tried to sabotage' his new book about racism
Sibling rivalry is coming back to bite Mindy Kaling.
The 37-year-old comedy star is under fire from her brother, Vijay Jojo Chokal-Ingam, amid his release of a self-published book that paints her in a very unflattering light.
In her brother's book - titled Almost Black: The True Story Of How I Got Into Medical School By Pretending To Be Black - Vijay told the New York Post that The Office star 'tried to sabotage' its release and has pulled similar nasty tactics on her show business peers.

Say what?: Mindy Kaling, 37, was under siege Sunday from her brother Vijay Jojo Chokal-Ingam, who told the NY Post she tried to thwart the release of his book and has pulled similar tactics on others in the past
Family feud: Mindy Kaling's brother Vijay said The Mindy Project star warned him that publishing his investigative tome would heap shame on their family
In response, Vijay told the paper he told his sister, 'You play a sl*t on national TV, and you think this will bring shame on the family?'
More shocking than the testy exchange is Vijay's claim that The Mindy Project star has been ruthless and manipulative behind the scenes, en route to her enviable spot in the comedy world.
Mindy 'has engineered similar public and private plots against her many frenemies in Hollywood,' said her brother, adding that he hoped pulling the veil off her scheming tendencies could reign her in from doing it to others.

'If Mindy thinks twice about stabbing someone else in the back because of what I’ve written,' he said, 'then I’m doing her a big favor.'
Vijay, who works as a college admissions consultant, revealed that Mindy's relationship with writer Benjamin Nugent crumbled when she engaged in behind-the-scenes politicking to ensure that his sister, Annie Baker, would not be represented by the powerhouse agency William Morris Endeavor.
Vijay said that Mindy had even promised Nugent she would do her best to aid Baker, who went on to win a Pulitzer Prize in 2014 for her dramatic piece, The Flick.
Hard-headed: Neither Vijay or Mindy speak to one another in the wake of a fight they had two years back, her brother said
Vijay's book details a social experiment he conducted to show the wrongs of the affirmative action system. He said that Mindy lied in her claim that she had no clue he was releasing the book.
Vijay said he and Mindy 'don't talk' in the wake of a falling-out in 2014, and it's safe to say that his latest remarks likely only widen the divide.
Mindy's reps have yet to respond to DailyMail.com's comment request.
