Shital Patel is of Indian heritage but she grew up in Edison, New Jersey, and is one of the clients on Netflix’s Indian Matchmaking.
Her South-Asian heritage shaped her into the confident, headstrong, and ambitious woman she is today. She, therefore, has a clear vision of what she wants and will never (understandably) accept anything less, especially given the significant contributions she makes to her own success as a professional, fitness, and self-care advocate.
Shital had a long list of requirements for a partner, some of which included traits like being family-oriented, amusing, bright, into fitness, adventurous, and travel enthusiast, as well as others like having a full head of hair and having a tattoo. Sima instructed Shital to expect something between 60 and 70 percent of her requirements, but she made it plain that this was too little, saying, “It’s not a compromise; to me, that’s settling. I think it ought to be closer to 80 or 90 percent.”
Unfortunately, because there was no physical appeal, she didn’t even come close to these numbers with Viral Kothari or Aparna’s cousin Avinash Shingwani, who are both situated in New York. Although the latter’s apparent kindness made her momentarily believe she had ruined everything by leaving him too soon, it actually turned out nicely for her rather shortly.
Netflix’s Indian Matchmaking: Are Shital Patel And Niraj Mehta Still Together?
Niraj Mehta, a Miami-based choreographer and radiation oncologist, entered Shital Patel’s life through her sister. They immediately fell head over heels in love. She genuinely acknowledged that he has a huge heart, is passionate, caring, and compliments her in every manner possible. He also acts openly and honestly, which has led her to believe that he is “the one.”
She also values the fact that they are honest with each other about their intimate relationships; these are just a few of the many reasons why she declared that he was the reason she would move to Florida.
The only catch? Niraj lives over 1,200 miles away in Miami. That’s where viewers next saw the couple, and Shital opened up about how Niraj felt at home — something she’d never experienced outside her own family. “If a home with you is Miami, then… it’s Miami,” Shital told him, expressing her desire to start a family and have kids.
“I’m just ear-to-ear smiling,” she spoke during confessional. “I love him with my whole heart, I will never find this kind of love ever again, so I’m really happy.”
“I feel at home with my parents and my sisters, but I’ve never had that feeling of home with a significant other,” Shital told Niraj in the series. “And then when I met you, I feel at home, and I feel safe. Like, home is with you.” The corporate worker naturally feels the same way, as does the doctor who combines medication with a bodily movement for better healthcare and who reciprocated the feeling before declaring in a confessional that he is “definitely in love.”
We’re happy to inform you that Shital and Niraj are still a couple. They don’t just follow each other on social media; as can be seen above, they also don’t hesitate to post affectionate images on their open Instagram stories.
Although it’s unclear if Shital moved to Miami formally, since February, her Instagram geotags have bounced between Miami and New York. She also provided a thought on “the sense of home” following a trip to Miami in early February that was quite similar to the speech she gave Niraj on the program.
Shital came to the conclusion that home “may never be one place” for her after writing about attachments and emotions. She resumed posting from Miami a few weeks later.
