Mindy Kaling has been treated to a helicopter ride courtesy of her writing team.

The 35-year-old star was thrilled when her writing staff took her on the ride of her life in Arizona today. The writer tweeted that she and her staff even indulged in an alcoholic beverage at the Grand Canyon.

“My writing staff surprised me with a HELICOPTER RIDE to THE GRAND CANYON where we DRANK CHAMPAGNE (sic),” the woman behind hit TV show The Mindy Project wrote on Twitter.

The missive was accompanied by a photograph in which the writer-come-actress is standing near the canyon gesturing towards the background with a big smile on her face. In the photograph she is wearing a black T-shit and trousers, along with a black pair of pumps with bright pink laces.

The comedienne has previously spoken out about the relationship she has with her team on the show and is not afraid of her strict boss reputation. Earlier this year she was a guest on Conan, where she revealed that she thinks birthday celebrations at work take too long.

“Everyone was like, ‘You’re a dictator! Go back to North Korea! We wanna have mirth at our workplace!’ My big thing is, you have to sing ‘Happy Birthday’ faster,” Mindy joked to host Conan O’Brien in April.

The Mindy Project has been renewed for a third season this year, after two successful series.
