After she gets dumped by her latest boyfriend, Lucy is inspired to create “The Broken Hearts Gallery,” a pop-up space for the items love has left behind. Word of the gallery spreads, encouraging a movement and a fresh start for all the romantics out there, including Lucy herself.
We had seen Geraldine Viswanathan a few months back when she became a co-star to Hugh Jackman in “Bad Education,” in which she played a high schooler. Her character, Rachel Bhargava, was a student journalist in Roslyn, Long Island. Before that the talented actress who is Indian from her father’s side played a teenage daughter in sex-positive comedy “Blockers.” Viswanathan was inspired to do comedy after watching ‘Friends’ at the age of eight. A few of her notable works over the years have been “The Package,” “Hala,” and a comedy series “Miracle Workers.” She has also voiced a Bojack Horseman character – the memorable “Tawnie.”
Utkarsh Ambudkar, known by his stage name UTK the INC, is the Indian-American actor, rapper and singer, who hogged the limelight this year at the Oscars with his performance that impressed the audience at the half-time of the show. We will get to see more of him soon in Disney’s “Mulan.”
