Indian Matchmaking, the latest Netflix dating show created a lot of buzz on social media. The show, created by Smriti Mundhra, follows ”Mumbai’s top matchmaker” Sima Taparia. The matchmaker stacks of ”biodata”— Taparia attempts to pair up not just compatible couples & families.
Surprisingly, none of the couples, that are implied to be heading into long term relationships at the end of their episodes is still together.
Aparna – the lawyer from Houston – told Oprah Magazine that she’s single, but still in touch with the three men she was set-up with on the show.
Pradhyuman – the jewellery designer from South Bombay – met the stunning Rushali Rai. He seemed to be in awe of her. However, don’t get your hopes high. While the two continue to remain friends, the 30-year-old jewellery designer told the LA Times, ”We had different paths in life, and we respected that and moved ahead. I’m still looking for the right one.”
Many others too either ended up being just friends or lost touch.
Now, whether Indian matchmaking is an effective way of finding the right partner is up for debate. However, the trend still prevails in our country.
NewsMobile Senior Editor Anisha Nayar Dhawan discussed the process of matchmaking with two Indian matchmakers. With the coronavirus Pandemic forcing us to stay indoors, Rita Sahni and Keshav share how the matchmaking business is marching ahead during this phase.
