The first part of the film, Legally Blonde was a huge hit for MGM in 2001. It managed to collect around $141.8 million through the global box office collections. It starred popular faces of the industry including Luke Wilson, Selma Blair, Matthew Davis, Victor Garber and Jennifer Coolidge. MGM then ended up releasing the follow-up, Legally Blonde 2: Red, White & Blonde. That film was a bit different from the first part as it was set in Washington, D.C, in 2013. The film managed to collect around $124.9 million through the worldwide box office collections.
Other than this, the Legally Blonde 3 producer was recently seen in a very popular music video. Kaling managed to turn some heads after being a part of a collaboration with the 5 Grammy Arawd winner, Billie Eilish. She and other cast members of The Office were seen in a Billie Eilish song, My Strange Addiction. Initially, Mindy was reportedly told that a young songwriter was looking to make a song out of clips of The Office. Mindy didn’t know the singer but certainly gave a yes in order to support the singer. Mindy Kaling happens to be one of the featured voices talking about the film after a screening. She also mentioned that “The song samples different parts of The Office because she loves the show so much”.
