Never Have I Ever’s Maitreyi Ramakrishnan Cast as Lead In Netflix Rom-Com ‘The Netherfield Girls’

Maitreyi Ramakrishnan has landed her second project at Netflix!

It was just announced on Wednesday (June 2) that she will star in The Netherfield Girls movie.

According to Variety, the movie is “a romantic comedy with literary pedigree. The movie is described as a ‘fresh and contemporary’ take on Pride and Prejudice in the spirit of the Emma Stone teen comedy Easy A and 10 Things I Hate About You.”

Maitreyi will star as Lizzie Bennet, “the protagonist of Jane Austen’s classic novel who eventually discovers the man she thinks is Mr. Wrong is in fact Mr. Right.”

Becca Gleason will direct the movie, which she also wrote. She previously wrote and directed Summer ’03, starring Joey King, and served as a consulting producer on the upcoming Prime Video series The Summer I Turned Pretty.

This is Maitreyi‘s second project ever, and her first film. Her big break of course is the Netflix series Never Have I Ever, which will premiere it’s second season this summer. Check out the first season two photos!

“I had to keep this secret for so long but HERE YOU GO!!!! AAAA I’m so excited. @beccamillergleason is such a homie to me already. Couldn’t ask for a better first feature-film. Time to do Jane Austen proud🥰❤️,” she excitedly shared on Instagram.

Congrats Maitreyi!!
