“Sonal is a hyper-talented comedic actress. If I could buy stock in her future, I would do it it today.”

“…and Sonal Shah’s comedic turn as her best friend Dr. Ali stands out despite her appearance in only a few scenes”
–The Hollywood Reporter
“ …Dr. Ali, played by the delightful Sonal Shah. Dr. Ali made me laugh out loud every time she graced the screen. Character melted away and the story invited me in to want more of her vivaciousness. Dr. Ali’s boldness reflects the joy of full single womanhood, in her full glory.”
–Black Girl Nerds
