Indian Matchmaking : None of the contestants Stayed Together after the show

Netflix’s ‘Indian Matchmaking’ revolves around an Indian Matchmaker, Sima Taparia from Mumbai. According to Sima’s algorithm, it’s difficult for a female lawyer to get married in an Indian family and many such unrealistic things. Sima is a traveler and has successfully matched many couples, aided by her face reader, astrologer, and sometimes a life coach too.

The Netflix series is created and directed by Smriti Mundhra and presented by Sima Taparia ‘It’s Sima from Mumbai’.

As reported in LA Times, series creator Smriti Mundhra said, “It’s a miracle it even got done,” who called all of Taparia’s clients, over 500 people, to find singles who were willing to share their matchmaking journey on camera.

But the question arises, did any of the contestants stayed together after the show? Here’s an update of what they’re up to now:

Vyasar Ganesan: Ganesan is an Austin-based schoolteacher who revealed his family complications on camera. He was the most likable person on the show and even Sima have nothing bad to say about him. He told the LA Times, “I’m still single. But it’s no one’s fault. Matchmaking really is tough. Both people I was matched with were truly wonderful, inspiring individuals who I’m proud to call friends. Ultimately, things didn’t work out, but I’m grateful for the memories I have from working with Sima.”

Aparna Shewakramani: Aparna is a Houston-based lawyer, who was selected for the show because of her humor. Aparna went through a lot of matches, and told The Times that the cameras “surprisingly added more stress in wanting to make the match work, because it felt like so much more hinged on it.” She is not dating any of her onscreen pairings. “They were all wonderful people,” she said. “They just weren’t the one for me.”

Nadia Jagessar: Nadia Jagessar is an event planner based in New York. Nadia is from Guyana which popped up problems for her to date. In the show, Nadia was seen dating Vinay and later a lawyer, Shekhar, but even that didn’t work out off cameras. “Being off camera definitely changed the dynamic between myself and the matches that I had continued talking to, and obviously, the change was not positive,” she told the LA Times. “But it helped me learn more about myself and what I’m looking for in a future partner.”

Pradhyuman Maloo: Pradhyuman, a jewelry designer based out in Mumbai, wasn’t ready to enter any kind of a relationship but by the end, he dated a Delhi-based model-actress Rushali seemed so romantic, but the two are no longer seeing each other. “We had different paths in life and we respected that and moved ahead,” he told the LA Times and he’s still looking for the right one.

I decided to be a part of #indianmatchmaking on @netflix as I am personally always looking foward to new experiences and also thought I could try a different way to find my life companion. It was a radical yet a conscious decision to find one of the most meaningful aspect of my life. I did end up in a rather intense process but leaving me with a beautiful experience . Also having a camera around was not easy as it makes you conscious but it made me push my boundaries and out of my comfort zone. I would also like to take this opportunity to answer a few questions that I have been receiving . What happened with Rushali post the horse ride? We did keep in touch however long distance didn’t allow us to explore our individual sides and communicate organically plus we were in different stages in our life so we decided to move on and yes we are still friends 🙂 Have I rejected 150 proposals in reality? It’s been misunderstood . Match makers send you several biodata (not proposals) to go through to find the suitable individual and figure who seems the right preference. It’s only the first stage ,followed by verification, preferences, intentions, telephonic conversations and finally a meeting. I have met only a couple of them out of these biodata. Think about it when you are swiping left or right in dating apps are you rejecting or it’s just not your preference? Just like everyone else I am also looking for a beautiful life, full of growth and experiences with my partner , with whom I can be mentally aligned and I am taking my time because it’s for life and don’t want to rush into it. And for those of you who are curious – I am not gay nor bisexual. I absolutely love Foxnuts and my door knob is just a creative photo frame reminding me of two life-death experiences. Little did I know I would be showered with so so much of love and support, well wishes, memes ( which makes me laugh at myself and I personally think we needed something to laugh for this 2020) and even the trolling. In 10 days , more than 10k of you who have come to my feedand it has left me overwhelmed and I am full of gratitude , love and feel so blessed. Thank you universe.

Akshay Jakhete: Akshay is a Mumbai-based graduate. According to the director, Akshay is the most traditional of everyone we had, as far as family structure and support. The series ended with him getting in a pre-engagement ceremony with Radhika from Udaipur. But it didn’t work out later. “A few days later, there were some things which we found out that did not go down well with us, and eventually I called it off,” he told the LA Times, though he declined to explicitly state what those things were.

Ankita Bansal: A Delhi-based entrepreneur who didn’t get any match on the show, got experience at least. “I understand the many preconceived notions associated with arranged marriages — and believe me, before going on ‘Indian Matchmaking,’ I had them too,” she told the LA Times.
