Indian Matchmaking is back in 2022 with a second season. Top matchmaker, Sima Taparia, has her work cut out to find the season 2 cast members a suitable life partner. She’s got to work with long lists of criteria and some seriously fussy clients. Viewers were first introduced to the show in 2020, and as season 2 premieres, some are wondering where the season 1 clients are now.

It’s been two years since the Netflix show first dropped, so let’s take a look at where the season 1 cast is now including Nadia, Vyasar, Ankita and co. Some of the cast members are back for more matchmaking on season 2.
