Viral Joshi told Today that before Indian Matchmaking, dating wasn’t working for her.
When she learned that there were casting calls for season 2 of the show, Viral was single at the time, so she signed up for Indian Matchmaking. “In the Indian culture, we believe when we’re born, there’s a star map. And in that star map, it basically says your whole life was on these dating apps. I had a voice on the inside that said, ‘This isn’t it.’ When this opportunity came up, I gravitated toward it,” she said.
Netflix’s Indian Matchmaking: Are Viral Joshi And Aashay Shah Still Together?
When Viral Joshi first appeared on our screens, she made it abundantly apparent that she was seeking a true relationship rather than someone to serve as her “other half.” Consequently, her motto has always been “Be a boss, date [marry] a boss. Build an empire,”, especially in light of the fact that she is entirely responsible for herself, and even owns the property.
Viral is Gujrati, has a degree, is an only child, adores her job, is debt-free, self-made, and an avid traveler, so those were some of the other requirements she had for a mate. Matchmaker aunt Sima did advise her that she should aim for 60 to 70 percent of her criteria, but Viral rightfully argued that she wasn’t asking for anything extra.
So the actual process started, with the Durham resident’s first potential suitors being Viral Kothari and Jaymin Mehta (both of whom are Gujrati as well as a single child). Sima introduced her to New York-based optometrist Aashay Shah after she met them one at a time, but she wasn’t feeling the attraction, the connection, or the long-term compatibility with any of them.
However, Aashay immediately won Viral over, not just because of his Gujrati heritage or intelligence but also because of his physicality, ties to his family, and how he conducted himself in front of her parents. Her opinion of his tattoos and his unwavering patience with her throughout their indoor rock climbing date were both huge pluses, and their chats actually made things better.
They continued to date without any big problems because, as Viral once stated, they were similar enough to have a strong foundation and different enough to help each other grow with each new day.
But the question remains, are they still together?
It was obvious they were serious about one another since Viral even came to New York to visit Aashay, at which point they had a minor fight that was addressed in a very healthy way. The latter said, “I feel like when you find the perfect person — when you feel like you have the right person with you — I feel like it makes it worth the effort… ”
They also had the challenging “what are we” and long-distance talk. I feel like you’re everything I’ve been looking for here with us. Viral clarified in a confessional that he is everything she has been looking for as well, “like, ten out of ten,” even if she merely told him she likes him too.
Given that Viral was smitten by Aashay and that she seems to get him completely, it seems likely that they will work hard to maintain their relationship for as long as possible. We, therefore, believe they are still together even though neither the Big Apple Optometrist nor the North Carolina-based Clinical Researcher has officially verified or refuted this as of the time of writing.
On their public social media pages, they already follow each other, and they also subtly exhibit their presence by liking nearly all of each other’s recent postings.
Speaking with Today, Viral confirmed that they are still in touch and long distance has its nuances. She adds, “We’re still trying to figure out what that looks like for us. All our friends are like, ‘What’s next? What’s next? You guys are hitting it off!’ I’ll visit him. He’ll come down here. We talk a lot on the phone. So we have a strong connection. I think we’re really working on building a foundation.”
She continued, “He’s 100 percent of my checklist. The physical attraction is there the chemistry is there. Do I think I like are there certain things that I would love to like change about him? Yes. Like I hate that he’s always late. But it is what it is. ”

However, Viral shared in an interview that her parents were both 32 years old when they got married. So, she doesn’t have any pressure on getting married and settling down.
She added, “I never received a lot of pressure from them because they always reinforce that good things take time. I only want to get married one time. It’s better to take your time with it. Don’t feel rushed or pressured into it.”
Another family member that Viral shared about is her grandmother who passed away in 2014 and she misses her a lot. She spoke with Today and added, “I had a really close relationship with my grandma. The only way that was possible was to speak the language.”
She also opened up, “In my family, everyone, we’re all Indian, and we’ve all always married Indians. So when we have Thanksgiving or big holidays, it’s nice to see that shared commonality in language, culture, food, traditions, and religion. I think it just makes it easier to blend families. They can bring their own experience of how they celebrated other customs and we merge that together.”
