Nadia Jagessar, a year-old wedding planner from New Jersey, spends her life deing other couples' perfect moments with her company, Euphoria Events. She ed up for Indian Matchmaking because she was ready for her moment. With the release of Indian Matchmaking on Netflix, her moment has arrived—albeit in a different form than she was expecting.
The show has been a massive hit, spurring Aparna-related memes , impassioned discussions , and talk of a season 2. I got recognized on the streets of New York the other day—even with my mask and glasses on," Nadia says. Merely weeks after Indian Matchmaking dropped on Netflix, and Nadia has already transformed into a veritable Netflix celebrity it's a thing! Essentially, Nadia ed Indian Matchmaking with the intention of meeting an individual partner, and instead found a swath of admirers.
However, she's still looking for love—but she knows it won't be with Vinay Chadha, one of Sima's matches on Indian Matchmaking. Though Vinay and Nadia were set up by a matchmaker, their relationship took on a pattern familiar to those dating in the digital age: Whirlwind romance, and unexpected ghosting.
By far, Nadia and Vinay's storyline was the most "reality TV show" strand in Indian Matchmaking , largely filmed as if it were a documentary series. The drama has spilled over past the boundaries of the eight-episode series, with Vinay and Nadia both providing their takes on what really happened. Did Vinay ditch Nadia, and commit Sima's cardinal sin of being "not serious" about settling down?
Did Nadia ghost Vinay, as he claimed in DMs to a fan? While Nadia understands audience's fascination with the subject, she says it's time to move on. Below, Nadia opens up to us about the appeal of matchmaking, the drama associated with dating, and her new life as an influencer.
My life has turned upside down in the best way possible. The first few nights I was barely sleeping, because I was so excited and so overwhelmed. Everything has been so amazing—such an outpouring of love that I've gotten from people all over the world, in various ways, shapes, and forms. I've gotten s, DMs. Even my LinkedIn profile has gotten messages. So it's just all very sweet and also very surreal.
You should meet my cousin! I'm like, I've been single for six years! It's all very sweet. I always respond back and say, "You're a good friend," or, "You're a good cousin. Like I said on the show, I'm not a shy person. Sharing this piece of my life with the world seemed easy for me. I really did put myself completely out there. What you saw on camera was what you get in real life as well. I wasn't opposed to the idea of matchmaking because my parents were arranged. The concept wasn't foreign to me. I was hoping it would bring me the same success that my parents had.
That was the biggest hope going into it it—maybe this would bring me something. I went into it with nothing to lose. I was disappointed that I did not come out of it with a match, because that was my hope or intention for this project. But I don't think it's changed my views on dating, or my views on arranged marriage at all.
Relationships are hard regardless of how you meet. At the end of the day, it's really about the two people who are entering into it, as much as it's marrying into the family and friends as well. I understand why people are fascinated by it. But I don't feel like I have to set the record straight because the record was shown on the show, from my end.
Everyone's been handling the show in a different way. I just have no hard feelings towards anyone. I want happiness for everybody. I know everyone is going through a really hard time right now. First, I love all of the memes that have come out this. People are hilarious and very witty. I appreciate them taking the humor out of it. I've been following the conversations that have been happening, debating of different topics in the show and the way that they address areas of matchmaking.
One of the biggest takeaways for me—even looking at my list—I'm like, maybe height doesn't matter, or other things I was looking for don't matter. At the end of the day, some of those things don't make for a happy relationship.
I think the show did a good job of highlighting the reality of what the conversations are actually like when you're dealing with the matchmaker. People put all their wishes into a magic hat and think Sima Auntie's gonna pull their husband for them. The reality is what was shown—how conversations are still happening.
I was expecting it to be a piece of my story—cause it is a piece of my story. My entire life, I've dealt with people being like, Well, you're not really Indian. Like I talk about in the show, guys I've dated in the past were like, Well, I need to marry a girl who's from India.
And I was like, How does that make me any less of a qualified candidate to date you, even if just because my family is not from India? Highlighting the fact that I'm Guyanese, but we are so similar to mainland Indians, was was important to me. I know it's not just me who goes through this struggle to explain, or to justify, who we are or what our culture is because other people might not understand it. I've gotten so many messages from people all over the world being like, I'm from Fiji, but originally my family was from India, and people don't understand , or I'm Trinidadian and I have the same problem.
It's not just my struggle. I'm proud to represent the Indo-Caribbean diaspora on such a huge platform. Hopefully people learn that the reach of mainland India is much greater than what people see. I would say, Don't lose hope. I've seen a meme, and it's like , "Nadia's an 11 out of If she gets stood up, there's no hope for the rest of us. My name also means "hope" in French.
I know, for myself, it'll happen when the stars are aligned. Anyone can find love at any given moment of the day. That's the greatest part. You know, you can walk into the grocery store and bump into somebody who can become your future husband.
The hope is always there. I get that question a lot. People are like, You're so pretty! How are you still single? It's like, being pretty is not the only requirement for having a relationship. I don't understand that. But I know people mean it in a good way.
