After two guilty-pleasure filled seasons of Indian Matchmaking, Season 3 drops next week to see if the formula can three-peat. The formidable Indian matchmaker Sima Taparia is crossing the ocean and bringing her matchmaking talents to the UK according to the trailer. But, we’re also checking back in with some fan favorites from previous seasons to see how their love life is going. What challenges will Sima overcome in London, and will cultural differences get in her way? Who are some of the new singles seeking Sima’s counsel? We’ll give you a crash course inIndian Matchmaking Season 3: Everything To Know.
Indian Matchmaking Season 3: Everything We Know- Across The Pond
Starting streaming on Netflix on April 21, Sima’s British invasion will take effect, but Sima Aunty won’t just confine herself to the UK. She’ll ply her talents in Miami, New York, North Carolina and back in New Delhi. And she won’t be alone: three generations of the Taparia family are slated to appear in this season. We’ll meet husband Anup along with Sima’s daughter Ritu and granddaughter Anaishaa. Netflix’s Tudum says that the famously self-sufficient Sima will team up with other matchmakers to make her magic happen. It seems like she will be tested like never before.
We already know a few of Sima’s British clients. Initially, there’s Priya Ashra, the 35-year old recently divorced chef and owner of the Tiku Tiku supper club. Priya was a surprise guest on Indian Matchmaking season 2 and has made her preference for taller guys well known. Priya’s IG is a veritable advertising hub for the show and she promises an unforgettable dating journey. But, one of the lesser known guests has actually posted on Sima’s IG. He’s educator Bobby Seagull, and he can be found all over the BBC teaching math, spitting football stats, and participating in quiz show The Answer Trap.
Indian Matchmaking Season 3: Everything We Know – Familiar Faces
Sima will be checking back in with several fan favorites from past seasons. Last time around, we were cheering on picky but lovable Viral Joshi and rock-climbing MD Aashay Shah. They were doing their utmost to make their NYC-NC LDR work and it seems they were still together as of September of last year. But will the connection they made last? Currently, they do not follow one another and they don’t post pictures together — but, this is Netflix, after all. We’ll also check in with Rushali Rai, a model and former Miss India who missed out on love with playboy Pradhyuman Maloo. We reported that Pradhyuman and his wife Ashima Chauhaan have not posted on IG for months, leading to speculation that they split. Maybe Rushali dodged a bullet?
Those are all the official participants that we can find, but that is by no means all the players. Apparently, other singles include “an ER doctor with a criteria list that may rival Aparna’s.” Aparna is, of course, Aparna Shewakramani, who clashed with Sima through the first two seasons and was open about her negative experience. There’s also a contestant who apparently reminds Sima Aunty of her younger self. There’s also rumors of a wedding if two popular aeason 2 contestants — Shital Patel and her dancing doctor beau, Dr. Niraj Mehta. Viewers have confirmed they saw a ring on Shital’s finger.
After the drama of Love Is Blind season 4, the new season of Indian Matchmaking should be a nice light palate cleanser.
